What's in this guide?

If you're visiting this page, more than likely you're a court looking for a resource that provides everything you need to know about social media. That's where the National Center for State Courts comes in. Over the course of the past five years, NCSC has created a guide that provides tips on maintaining your social media site, the do's and don'ts of social media, a list of courts with social media accounts and much, much more. This guide will assist you with the following:
