DePaul Social Media Guidelines

We're excited to welcome you to DePaul's alumni social media communities:

We encourage you to use our social media as a way to connect with other DePaul alumni around the world, to network, and to share resources and information of interest to the DePaul alumni community. The success of the online communities depends on your comments and participation, so make yourself at home!

The DePaul University Office of Advancement Communications monitors posts and comments to our social media communities - please be aware of our guidelines when participating:

1.) Respect others

Sexist, racist and other discriminatory comments or images will be removed immediately. Users are free to discuss topics and disagree with another, but please be respectful of others' opinions.

2.) Keep it clean

Do not post offensive, obscene or sexually explicit language or photos—such posts will be removed immediately.

3.) Keep your contact information personal

For your own safety and security, please refrain from posting personal contact information (home phone numbers, mailing addresses, personal email addresses, etc.) on the LinkedIn community boards, on the Facebook wall and in Demon Tracks comments.

4.) Don't spam

We encourage you to use the space as a platform to share information about your work and achievements. However, commercial advertisements, solicitations and promotions are not allowed.

Do not use the space as a marketplace to sell or request tickets for DePaul events. Please visit the appropriate DePaul website (examples: Athletics; Theatre; Alumni Events) for information on tickets to DePaul events.

5.) Stay on topic

We encourage open discussion among alumni; however, postings that are deemed irrelevant to the DePaul alumni community may be removed at our discretion.

Guidelines for creating LinkedIn Alumni Subgroups

Our LinkedIn Subgroups give LinkedIn Alumni Association group members more opportunities to connect with other DePaul alumni in their region or profession.

Subgroup topics are chosen at the discretion of the DePaul Office of Advancement based on user interest and number of alumni located in a region. Subgroups are regularly monitored for user activity. If there is no significant user activity in a subgroup after 6 month, users may l be notified of the group's removal.
