Participation in social networking and online communities, in proper balance with face-to-face relationships, can be enriching when certain precautions are taken. Consider the following:

  • Limit the amount of personal information you provide and make use of the site’s security and privacy settings to control access to your information. Others may share or use it in ways you do not intend.

  • Behaviour that is inappropriate in person is also inappropriate online, including threats, harassment, discrimination, or acts of fraud. For our community, this also includes behaviour that is contrary to the Student Code of Conduct and policies and guidelines of the University. Inappropriate online behaviour may be investigated through TWU’s Student Accountability Policy and Procedures.
