Is social media part of job?

Following newspapers’ reports on the dispute between the Geauga County Auditor Chuck Walder and the Probate/Juvenile Court Judge Timothy Grendell, the Court Administrator, Kimberly Laurie, saw fit to engage with people on Facebook, using her personal Facebook account, during working hours. When I questioned her about this, she stated: “I am the court’s media contact, which includes social media.” I have obtained a copy of the job description for court administrator, and it does not include being the court’s media contact or engaging on Facebook during working hours.
