When managing the content of your congregation's Facebook Page, it is important to keep one principle in mind:
Your congregation’s Facebook Page belongs to your congregation. Therefore, your congregation has the sole right to determine what is appropriate content.
Given this reality, it is important that your congregation understand and agree on how appropriate content is defined. An excellent way to do this is by writing a formal content moderation policy. All congregational Facebook Page administrators should understand and implement that policy.
For help in crafting your own content moderation policy, we offer two examples to use as guides:
"The UUA welcomes all people to contribute to conversations on this page and to share content directly related to Unitarian Universalism. Wall posts, comments, photos, and other content posted on this page are expected to be relevant and respectful.
Congregations may find it useful to post a public disclaimer in the About section of their Facebook Page. A written policy is also very useful to have available when administrators are asked why some item was removed from the page.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
Please consider making a donation today.
