Social media and online community guidelines

The department has several online and social media channels and we encourage you to follow those which are relevant to you and to join in conversations.

It is important that our online environments are safe places where everyone can participate without fear of an inappropriate response. To maintain online communities that are safe, respectful and constructive, we have created community guidelines that govern behaviour across our social media and online communities. We ask that all participants follow these guidelines.

Community guidelines:

  • Don't mislead or misinform - you must not promote incorrect or inexpert advice or other information.
  • Remain respectful - please be respectful of others and their opinions and refrain from behaviour which is offensive, harassing or discriminatory. This includes the use of harassing others through private messages, inappropriate language and views that are racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit or otherwise objectionable.
  • Don’t get personal - do not harass others or make personal attacks.
  • Be yourself - please post under your own name or include your name in your profile. Comments from anonymous, misleading or suspicious profile names may be deleted, regardless of topic.
  • Stay on topic - misleading, off-topic, inflammatory, repetitive, offensive, defamatory or inappropriate comments may be hidden or deleted.
  • Protect your identity - do not reveal any personal or sensitive information about yourself or others, including our staff, for example, bank details. We may ask to take a conversation offline if it is of a sensitive nature.
  • Observe the law - do not post anything which breaks the law or encourages others to engage in unlawful activity, such as breach of copyright, defamation or contempt of court.
  • Stay safe - do not describe or encourage activities which could endanger the safety or wellbeing of others.
  • No SPAM - do not post or repost information or links to advertisements, requests or offers, or anything else that could be considered to have a commercial motivation.
  • Observe channel rules - in addition to our own requirements, be sure to observe the policies of the specific social media channels that you are using - including the rules of Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Flickr, G+, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube.

* Please note that behaviour which is deemed to be anti-social will not be tolerated. The department reserves the right to delete any comments that it considers, within its discretion, fall within the above description, and to ban or block those posting any of the above from its pages or channels.
