. Internal Social Media Policy
. Pages from Social Media Intranet Page

*The Department of Communications and the Arts has produced a video on social media which was adapted from the Victorian Department of Justice video. The Victorian video is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iQLkt5C...
The Department of Communications and the Arts' video is approximately 94MB in size, so is too large to release to you via email. The Department has therefore prepared a transcript of the text of the video, and provided it in the pdf attached.
If you would like a copy of the video, you may either contact the Department to arrange a time to view the video in our Canberra office, or alternatively, if you provide an Australian postal address we will post you the video on a USB in mp4 format.

Should you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact us, preferably by email to [Department of Communications request email].

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Smith

Regrettably, we are not able to upload this video to our FOI Disclosure Log due to its file size.
As the video was produced for internal staff information, it is not the right fit for our YouTube channel which is directed at external stakeholders.
However, we are able to provide you with a USB of the video at no charge or you may attend our office to watch it at a mutually convenient time.

Please feel free to call to discuss further.

Many thanks
