Legal & finance tips for Divisions
Listservs & social media
APA/Division Listservs and social media sites are governed by a set of rules which include prohibitions or cautions for commercialism, copyright infringement, defamation, antitrust and political campaigning. With the U.S. presidential election cycle coming up, this is a reminder to avoid posting comments in support of or against a candidate for office on APA/Division Listservs, Facebook or other social media of APA or your Division. This includes comments in support of or against candidates for office and even includes the telling of jokes (e.g., "Obama and Romney walk into a bar..."). APA policies for Listservs and social media are below.
