Gov. Mike Pence Posted New Facebook Policy

Last updated on Friday, July 19, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence posted a new Facebook policy on his government website this week.

The policy was established in response to critics who had their messages deleted from his Facebook page because they took a position on same sex marriage in opposition to his. Pence apologized for the removal and promised to develop the new policy.

The policy states that the governor's office is "not responsible for content generated by users." It prohibits "profanity, vulgarity, nudity, defamation of character, advertising, or political campaigning."

The policy also urges users to be civil and says that "larger discussions of political views and philosophies may be addressed elsewhere."

The policy is hard to locate. To find it from the Pence Facebook page you must click on the "About" link and then click on a second link to get to the correct page. You can read it at http://www.in.gov/gov/2586.htm
