Social Media Community Guidelines

We encourage open, honest and respectful discussion on our social media pages but to make sure everyone has a fair go we have a few guidelines.

The following guidelines apply to all Town of Victoria Park social media pages, in addition to the Terms of Service of each social media platform.

When interacting with our pages, the Town requests that you:

  • Represent your own views and do not impersonate or falsely represent any other person
  • Exercise courtesy
  • Respect the opinion of others
  • Do not be abusive, harass or threaten others
  • Do not post personal information about yourself or others, especially private addresses or contact information


The Town of Victoria Park does not accept responsibility for comments or views expressed on our social media pages. They are not representative of the opinions of the Town, nor do we make any warranty to their accuracy.

However, the Town reserves the right to hide or delete content posted to our social media pages that contain:

  • Information that may compromise the safety or security of the public
  • Discussion or promotion of behaviour that is unlawful
  • Violent, threatening, profane or abusive language
  • Any other inappropriate content or comments as determined by the Town of Victoria Park

In addition, the Town does not tolerate discussion on our social media pages that contains discrimination or hate speech. The Town defines these terms as:

  • Discrimination – when someone is treated less favourably based on their background or certain personal characteristics.

If your comment is hidden by the Town, you may be notified by direct message with an explanation of how you breached the Town's social media community guidelines. Repeat offenders will be issued a warning, then temporarily blocked. This Town views blocking users from our page as a last resort and will endeavour to give everyone multiple opportunities to abide by our guidelines.

By liking, following or otherwise interacting with the Town’s social media pages, you acknowledge these terms and the terms of the platform.
