Social Media Commenting Code of Conduct

Social Media Monitoring

Official ECU Social Media pages are monitored 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday AWST (Perth Time) and we aim to respond to any queries within 24 hours.

Social Media Commenting Code of Conduct

All conversations and posts should be constructive, respectful, and contain language that is appropriate for all groups and ages. ECU therefore reserve the right to disallow comments that are:

  • obscene, indecent, profane, or vulgar
  • contain threats or personal attacks of any kind
  • contain offensive terms targeted at any minority group, including racial, ethnicity, religious, sexual identity or gender identity
  • are defamatory, libelous or contain ad hominem attacks
  • promote or endorse a product or service
  • are excessively repetitive or constitute SPAM

Comments that do not adhere to the above guidelines will, without exception, be removed. In cases of repeat offenses, we will take action to block offenders from ECU Social Media pages.

Please note: ECU moderators do their best to ensure this policy is adhered to fairly and consistently. If you would like to report abuse, spam, fake profiles, etc. please refer to each social media's guidance on this. A user can always report any individual comment as "abuse" or "spam" by scrolling over the comment and clicking on the "x" in the upper right corner.

Student and Staff Code of Conducts

Like any large organisation, ECU has a set of values that apply to everyone in our community - whether you work or study here. Our Code of Conduct policies for students and staff explain how to follow ECU's values. Current Students and Current Staff will be held accountable to these policies regarding their interactions on offical ECU Social Media channels.

Social Media Policy

This policy provides a framework for participation in social media by ECU staff and students. The Social Media Policy encourages and supports responsible use of social media when communicating on one of ECU's official social media channels or commenting on University matters on external social media sites.
