WINCHESTER, KY (AP) -- A central Kentucky county is seeking to limit how much time county employees spend on social media during working hours and on county-supplied devices.

The Clark County Fiscal Court is working on an ordinance that would require posts to county social media pages and websites to be approved by Clark County Judge-Executive Henry Branham or someone he appoints. Also, county employees would be banned from posting or viewing personal social media pages while on county time.

The policy would apply to all forms of social media, including Facebook, blogs, YouTube, MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter

Clark County Attorney Brian Thomas says several counties have adopted similar policies.

The policy would not extend to posts about personal matters made using personal electronic devices during non-working hours.
