International ACAC Social Media Posting Guidelines
 

The Communications Committee is pleased that the Facebook Group and other social media channels have become a valuable resource for its members. The FB Group is designed as a forum to voice questions, concerns, and announcements of interest to all page members. As our membership and access grows, we would like to remind you of a few FB Group guidelines. 

If you participate in or view discussions on social media that violate our policies, feel free to submit a complaint here to our SOCIAL MEDIA COMPLAINT FORM. The Communications Committee will regularly review complaints and will contact the user to discuss resolving the issue. If a member is reported more than once, he or she might be removed from the forum for violation of these policies. 

 

Be Mindful

Things to consider before posting or commenting: 

  • Is my post/comment helpful for all?
  • Is my post/comment relevant to the college application process for counselors and college representatives?
  • Is my post non self-promotional in nature? As a reminder, the selling or promotion of goods or products by for-profit organizations is prohibited on the page.

Be Respectful

  • Make room for others. Every member has a right to be heard.
  • Interacting on social media can be time consuming for posters and readers. Please keep posts concise and to the point. 
  • If comments and discussion are more relevant to specific members than the general page membership, please consider private messaging or emailing.

Be Positive and Truthful

  • When posting or commenting, please limit information that might spread rumors or cannot be supported by facts.
  • Ask yourself “will this post help our students?”

Tips

  • Consider using hashtags in your posts, so that others can reference the topic and discussion at a later date.
  • Instead of adding the comment “following” to those posts you are interested in, we suggest members use the “turn on notifications for this post” feature.

*Be reminded that all members are expected to be aware and adhere to the International ACAC Membership Standards.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact [email protected].
