media, Facebook and Twitter are all dynamic ways to communicate. Unfortunately,
they are also ways for people to say things they would never say to your face.
We get lots
of posts to our Facebook page and occasionally I receive complaints concerning
improper or rude posts.
Due to the
sheer volume of posts and comments on our social media pages every day, we
cannot guarantee we will catch every offensive comment, but we will act when we
see abusive or obscene language, and certainly if they are brought to our
such obvious violations, what constitutes an offensive comment is subjective.
To remove unpopular opinions could be seen as censorship.
The fact is,
we feel you should be able to express your opinion – whether we or others agree
with it or not.
problem is the loss of civility - on the web. Some people feel it gives them
the forum to say whatever they want, anyway they want, and that's a shame.
social media is a powerful and valuable way to share thoughts, feedback and
ideas, and it's here to stay.
We hope more
people sharing their opinions will set a good example by doing so in a
constructive and civil way.
