Social Media Guidelines

Setting out the foundation for communication on social media.

Social media has changed the way that businesses function and individuals live their lives; everyday we communicate both on a personal and professional level, which offers a powerful way of communicating with our customers, our colleagues and the general public.

Frog recognises that these interactions can help strengthen our relationships and also support understanding. To ensure that the interactions are positive and outcomes are beneficial we have put together a series of guidance, principles and instructions that should be adhered to when using social media to represent the company.
