I totally understand your position. However, the current thought and feelings on contractors is of relevance because there is no social media policy in place as of yet, but what is put in that policy in relation to how contractors will fit in to this social media piece will more than likely be based on their current thoughts about the contractor Government employee relationship. Those thoughts are already coming into play, which is why there’s a debate (if you will) on whether or not a contractor should post something and why there’s a perception that a post rearing a Government employee signature over a contractor signature is more creditable. I bring this all up because from my experience it seems as though this thinking is the norm and this thinking is transferred into policies and procedures. I’m not saying all agencies are still like this, but enough still are, so it’s better to be aware and address than ignore it.
