Increasingly, access applications are encompassing social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, material held in personal email accounts, and text and other messages sent using devices such as smart phones and tablets.

OIC's new guideline Online and on your phone will assist agencies in identifying when these will be classed as documents of an agency or a Minister, as well as on capturing and processing these documents as part of an access application.
