Alaska DOT&PF Social Media Policy

Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) official social media pages are where you will find the most recent news stories, videos, photos, and information distributed by DOT&PF and the State of Alaska.

If you are looking for the official source of information about Alaska DOT&PF, please visit dot.alaska.gov.

DOT&PF's social media pages are family-friendly forums viewable by all ages. Please consider this when creating posts and comments. When in doubt, ask yourself: does my reply improve the conversation in some way? Be kind to your fellow community members – no cyber-bullying! Constructive criticism is welcome, but remember to criticize ideas, not people. All posts and comments must comply with the DOT&PF rules for posting and must meet the requirements below. If you do not comply, your message may be removed:

  • No content of a discriminatory or derogatory nature. Opinions can be expressed without being offensive, humiliating, obscene or intimidating based on:
    • race, ethnicity, nationality, or physical characteristics
    • gender or sexual orientation
    • religion or non-religious viewpoints
    • political views
  • We do not allow comments that are abusive, hateful, or potentially libelous.
  • No solicitations or advertisements. This includes promotion or endorsement of any financial, commercial, or non-governmental agency.
  • No external links except for those linking to an official State of Alaska website or sites that directly relate to the mission of DOT&PF.
  • No comments suggesting or encouraging illegal activity.
  • This is a Campaign Free Zone - no comments or postings related to campaigns or elections, as Alaska law prohibits use of State equipment or resources for campaign or partisan political purposes.
  • Do not post adult content. Content classified as "adult" (such as pornography or graphic violence) has no place on the DOT&PF page.
  • No comments that are not topically related to the posting being commented upon.

NOTE: In extreme circumstances DOT&PF may permanently remove fans who repeatedly violate these rules.

Public comments submitted on our social media pages do not constitute public testimony. All public testimony regarding DOT&PF policies, documents, and/or actions must be submitted via the proper forum. For information on providing public testimony contact dot.ask@alaska.gov.

You participate at your own risk, taking personal responsibility for your comments, your username, and any information provided. Comments submitted on DOT&PF social media pages are considered public records and are subject to public disclosure.

If you have questions or wish to speak with someone at our office, please email us at dot.ask@alaska.gov.

The State of Alaska is not responsible for the content/information on any site outside of a State of Alaska department.
