What we expect from you

We support the Facebook Community Standards and request that visitors to our social channels do the same.

To ensure our channels are an inclusive, friendly and welcoming space for all visitors, we do moderate where necessary. We ask that when contributing your views to council social media channels, you ensure that you:

  • Be respectful of others and their opinions
  • Do not harass, abuse or threaten other visitors to the page or council employees.
  • Do not post comments that are likely to offend others, particularly in reference to race, age, gender, sexuality, political leaning, religion or disability.
  • Do not use obscene or offensive language.
  • Do not post defamatory comments.
  • Do not post repeat comments continuously.
  • Do not repeatedly post information which is factually inaccurate and may mislead others.
  • Do not promote anything that may constitute spam, such as commercial interests, solicitations, or advertisements.
  • Protect your personal privacy and that of others by not including personal information such as email addresses, phone numbers or home addresses in public posts or comments. Any posts or comments that violate these terms will be deleted.

Comments that do not adhere to the above will be moderated and potentially removed. Any person who violates these guidelines may be blocked from posting on council’s social media channels.
