Social media house rules
When using any of our social media accounts, we ask you to follow these 'house rules'.
Our social media pages are designed to provide the community with important information as well as giving you an opportunity to engage with Council and to interact with other community members.
The staff and Councillors or Randwick City Council are committed to the following principles:
Our social media platforms are places where anyone can share and discuss issues that are relevant to our Council and the community we represent and serve.
We will ensure our social media platforms are kept up to date with informative content about our Council and community.
The content we upload onto our social media platforms and any other social media platform will be a source of truth for our Council and community and we will prioritise the need to correct inaccuracies when they occur.
Our social media platforms are safe spaces. We will uphold and promote the behavioural standards contained in this policy and our Council’s code of conduct when using our social media platforms and any other social media platform.
We ask that you be kind, courteous and respectful at all times. We're open to discussion that is polite and respectful. But please remember, there are humans on the other side of the keyboard!
Our social media platforms are generally monitored Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Service requests received via social media will be processed in accordance with Council's Customer Service Charter PDF, 131.98 KB.
We will not tolerate posts or content that:
- is defamatory, offensive, humiliating, threatening or intimidating to Council officials or members of the public
- contains profane language or is sexual in nature
- constitutes harassment and/or bullying within the meaning of the Model Code of Conduct for Local Councils in NSW, or is unlawfully discriminatory

- seeks to deliberately monopolise or influence the social media channel for their own personal purposes

Council's social media platforms are not to be used for making complaints about the Council or Council officials. Please use Council's contact us page and refer to our Complaints Management Policy.
Posts or content that breach these house rules will be removed or 'hidden'. Users may also be banned from Council's social media sites if they breach these house rules. The particular circumstances and severity of the breach will be considered in deciding whether to remove, hide or ban.
A person whose content has been removed or has been blocked or banned may request a review of the decision by making an application in writing to the General Manager and outlining the grounds upon which the request is being made. A review will be conducted consistent with Council's Social Media Policy.
