Social Media Policy

Facebook and other social networking sites can be great if they are used properly.  Facebook and other social networking sites are an easy way to keep in touch with friends and family but they can be a nightmare impacting someone's professional and social life.  The JPCC Committee has decided to apply a JPCC Facebook and Social Networking Policy for club members which are common sense and apply standards of common courtesy and the basic rule of treating others as you would like to be treated.   If you have seen to breach the JPCC Facebook and Social Networking Policy you will be subject to a penalty deemed appropriate by the JPCC Committee.

The rules are as follows:

 

  • Facebook is not a tool to criticise JPCC, JPCC club members and anyone involved in the FTGDCA (players, clubs, umpires, and committees).

 

  • Don't type something you wouldn't say in real life. You shouldn't hide behind a computer and say hurtful things that you wouldn't dream of saying to someone's face.

 

  • Don't share something on your page or in your status that you don't want everyone to know.

 

  • Do not share private things about others.  If you are not sure if something is private to others, do not share it.

 

  • Don't share information about yourself or others like address or telephone number details.

 

  • Don't feel obligated to add applications or promote things because friends sent them to you.

 

  • Do be careful what you post.  Remember that if you are venting about someone else, just because he or she is not on your friend list does not mean it won't get back to them somehow.

 

  • Do be careful of your tone. It can be hard to tell when people are joking or being sarcastic.

 

  • Don't type in all caps unless you really mean to shout.
