New Perspectives: Postgraduate Symposium for the Humanities welcomes and encourages the use of social media by attendees, speakers, and volunteers during the conference. To ensure a safe and inviting environment for all participants, we ask that you adhere to the following social media policies.
(Please note: participants are also expected to adhere to our Code of Conduct while online during the conference as well.)
NPPSH’s default policy is that presentations, papers, and posters are open to being shared by conference attendees. Therefore, if a speaker does not wish attendees to post about their presentation on social media, take photos, or share any of the speaker’s research, it is the speaker’s responsibility to inform the audience prior to the commencement of their presentation.
Retweets, shares, and/or reblogs by the NPPSH social media accounts are not endorsements. If we share something from another source, it is because we feel it will be of interest to our followers.
Guidelines and Suggestions:
- Follow NPPSH on Twitter: @nppshie or “like” us on Facebook
- Tweet during the conference using the #NPPSH16 hashtag
- Give credit! Properly cite/reference speakers when quoting them in a tweet, blog post, or Facebook update.
- Feel free to take photos/still images of presentations
- Promote your own work and/or direct attendees to further resources
- Be respectful and mindful of tone – the Internet is forever!
- Put your mobile, tablet, or laptop on mute to avoid distracting the speakers and other attendees.
- Say anything online if you would not say it to someone’s face.
- Record video of speakers, presentations, or posters.
- Tweet or take pictures if the speaker expressly asks you not to.
- Engage in rude or harassing behaviour.
- Stray off topic – keep social media posts relevant to NPPSH.
