Social media raises federal record-keeping, privacy concerns

"Social media tools enable the government to engage with citizens and carry out their missions, but federal officials are pushing for additional guidance to ensure records are preserved properly.

Officials from several agencies told the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Information Policy, Census and National Archives on Thursday that the growing use of Web 2.0 technologies across government presents challenges for official record-keeping. Communications via blogs, wikis and social networks in many cases are considered federal records and must be managed as such, they said."
