Social Media Policy

Social Media Policy

In early 2015, the MULSS Committee resolved to create a social media policy in light of the significant online discussion increasingly occuring on MULSS Social Media. On 21 September 2015, the MULSS Executive Committee unanimously passed the inaugural MULSS Social Media Policy into operation.

Following consultation with MLS Faculty, the MULSS Executive Committee passed an amendment to the MULSS Social Media Policy on 17 February 2016. Changes align with University rules with respect to misconduct and reinforce the MULSS’s intention to only intervene where absolutely necessary.

The MULSS Social Media Policy (‘Policy’) defines the permissible Terms of Use for all MULSS Social Media. The Policy seeks to ensure the ongoing utility of MULSS Social Media as an effective means of communication between the MULSS Committee and MULSS Members. It seeks to ensure that all use of MULSS Social Media is conducted in a productive and courteous manner that is respectful of all Users, at all times.

Who it applies to

The Policy applies to all Users of MULSS Social Media, including, but not limited to, all MULSS Members and Committee. MULSS Social Media includes, but is not limited to, the MULSS Website and Facebook accounts.

The Terms of this Policy may be amended from time to time by the MULSS Executive Committee.


Any questions, comments, suggestions or concerns should be emailed to the MULSS Communication Directors at with the subject line: ‘MULSS Social Media Policy – Feedback’ and the User’s student number.
