Using Social Media in Community Based Protection

 

Introduction

Welcome to “Using Social Media in Community Based Protection: A Guide”. The guide has been created for all partners and stakeholders interested in how Social Media can enhance protection while avoiding security and privacy risks to People of Concern. This webpage will help you navigate the content of the guide, find what is relevant for you and your team, and identify resources to deliver protection outcomes through social media.

The Guide

When we decide to engage people of concern through social media, an additional duty of care arises. Social media can exacerbate inequalities of age, gender, literacy and computer literacy. But in some situations, social media are invaluable for contacting individuals who might otherwise be out of reach and sharing potentially life-saving information. This guide is all about making the most of social media while avoiding the pitfalls that could compromise the very protection outcomes we seek.

Resources

General resources and blog posts to help deliver protection outcomes through social media.
