Event, Speaking Engagement
02/09/2017

On February 9th 2017, Robert Collings took part in the Knowledge Group’s presentation, “The Blurry Line Between Regulation and Social Media: Legal Landscape Explored! Live Webcast.”

This two hour webcast discussed social media framework, as well as to what extent agencies can use social media to carry out their regulatory functions. It analyzed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) social media campaign, stemming from a report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) that said it, “violated federal law and took part in covert propaganda by using social media to solicit support for an Obama Administration rule aimed at protecting streams and surface waters.”

Topics discussed during the webcast included:

  • EPA's Social Media Campaign
  • Government Accountability Office's Report
  • Social Media Legal Framework
  • Recent Issues and Developments Affecting the use of Social Media
  • Risk Mitigation Strategies
