Social Media Information for General Users

Many University of Cincinnati colleges, departments, divisions and programs have created pages and profiles on various social networks to keep you informed, up-to-date and connected with the UC community. The success of our online networks depends on your participation, so please feel free to join in and contribute to the conversations!

Please be aware that UC staff monitor posts and comments made within many of our social media communities, and be mindful of the following guidelines while participating:

Respect Others

Sexist, racist and other discriminatory comments or images will be removed immediately. Users are free to discuss topics and disagree with another, but please be respectful of others' opinions. Personal attacks directed toward other fans or members will not be tolerated.

Keep It Clean

Do not post offensive, vulgar, profane or sexually explicit language or photos—such posts will be removed immediately. Threats of any kind will not be tolerated. Violators of this rule may be removed from the group or page immediately at the administrator’s discretion.

Keep Your Contact Information to Yourself

For your own safety and security, refrain from posting any personal contact information (home phone numbers, mailing addresses, personal email addresses, etc.).

Don’t Spam

In many cases, you may use our social media pages as a platform to share information about yourself and your achievements. However, commercial advertisements, solicitations, business advertisements and promotions are not allowed on many of the social media pages.

Stay on Topic

We encourage open discussion among social media users; however, administrators reserve the right to remove postings that are deemed irrelevant or inappropriate for the UC community at their discretion and at any time.

Read the Rules

When joining a new social media page or community, read the rules (if any) before you begin posting. Rules for participation may vary by page and by community.

PLEASE NOTE: All UC social media administrators reserve the right to terminate a user’s group or page membership, participation and/or privileges, and to delete unacceptable posts and comments at their sole discretion—for any reason, at any time.
