Social Media Comment Policy
YWCA Madison seeks to be a community of inclusion. While we encourage fans to share thoughts and opinions on social media profiles managed by YWCA, we expect that this will be done in a respectful manner. YWCA Madison does not agree with or endorse every comment that individuals post on our social media profiles. Our goal is to share ideas and information with as many individuals as possible and our policy is to accept the majority of comments made to our profile. As a 501 (3) tax-exempt organization, we cannot endorse political candidates. And, while we want to engage with people of all opinions, hate speech does not contribute to a constructive conversation.
A comment will be deleted if it contains:
- Political posts promoting a specific candidate, including events, links to websites, etc.,
- Hate speech,
- Profanity, obscenity or vulgarity,
- Nudity in profile pictures,
- Defamation to a person or people,
- Name calling and/or personal attacks,
- Comments whose main purpose are to sell a product,
- Spam comments, such as the same comment posted repeatedly on a profile,
- Other comments that the Social Media team deems inappropriate.
Repeated violations of the comment policy may cause the author to be blocked from YWCA social media spaces. We understand that social media is a 24/7 medium; however, our moderation capabilities are not. We may not see every inappropriate comment right away, and we are trusting in the maturity of our community to ignore personal attacks and negative speech or respond politely.
