Content for Social Media

  • Before posting content to any social media outlet affiliated with UNG, make sure to read and become familiar with the UNG Social Media Policy and the UNG Social Media Guidelines.
  • As you are able, include on your the UNG Social Media Posting Disclaimer, which follows:
    • The University of North Georgia has established the following policies for posts and comments on UNG social media pages. Administrators of UNG social media are expected to monitor UNG pages and enforce these policies.
    • UNG welcomes participation on our social media pages and encourages you to interact with us often. We hope to provide a forum for dialogue among the many diverse voices of our university, and we encourage comments about the content you find here.
    • Posts containing personal attacks, profanity, nudity, or illegal material are prohibited. UNG reserves the right to remove content and to revoke the user's privilege to post to UNG social media accounts.
    • UNG does not monitor social media 24/7 and thus cannot immediately review every comment posted on its social media accounts. User-provided content is not screened or evaluated during the submission process. Opinions expressed by users do not necessarily reflect the opinion of UNG and UNG cannot verify the accuracy of such posts.
    • Posts are to be used for noncommercial purposes. You may not solicit funds or promote commercial entities.
    • All content posted by UNG is the property of the University of North Georgia and is subject to copyright laws.
    • Users are encouraged to report content that violates the social media platform's Code of Conduct, UNG and/or USG policies or the law to UNG's Office of University Relations. Users are encouraged to report to UNG Public Safety any dangerous or threatening activity involving or related to the university or its students, faculty or staff.
  • All content on UNG social media pages must relate directly to University of North Georgia business, programs, and/or services. Posts should be collegiate in tone and should maintain the dignity of the university.
  • DO NOT SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT UNG THAT IS NOT A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD.
  • Social media widgets and tools should not be used if content can be distributed without first being reviewed and approved by an employee of University of North Georgia. Also, be aware that when you use any scripts that are hosted external to UNG-managed web servers, you potentially expose the university and the visitors of its websites to greater risks.
  • Post links from your departmental or unit website, the UNG website or the UNG Newsroom; maintain your website and use social media to drive people to it. It's a great way to multipurpose your content without having to create new content just for social media.
  • Post photos -- as long as they are good quality, interesting images and do not violate any laws or policies of the social media portal, UNG or USG. And make sure you have ownership and/or permission to use it. Analytics and other data have shown that posts with colorful, in-focus photos – like from your event or of campus icons or people – get more attention. To maintain your intellectual property, upload photos at a low resolution such as 72 dpi.
  • Share content from the official UNG social media portals and UNG-affiliated pages. Find them on UNG's Social Media Directory and follow them to keep up to date on UNG happenings. Contact the UNG Social Media Manager or "tag" UNG's official accounts to have your content considered for posting on UNG's official social media pages.
  • Make sure you are contributing valuable insights and posting quality content regularly. Be sure not to overload your updates. Your connections will stop paying attention if you overload with too much information and ignore you if you rarely post useful information.

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
