Social Media Update

Sunday 24 October 2021


Surf Life Saving Tasmania values interacting with our members and the community through our social media platforms.

Social media operates 24/7. While we closely monitor comments made on our Facebook posts, we do not have the capability to moderate commentary 24/7.

As a result of the recent High Court ruling, moving forward some posts will have their comments section switched off.

We expect all Facebook users to engage with our page in line with Terms of Reference which are available in the “about” section of this page.

Social Media Terms of Reference

SLST’s Facebook and Instagram pages provide a platform for the public to engage and stay up to date with the activities of Surf Life Saving Tasmania.

Comments, links, video and images that are posted by others on the page do not necessarily represent the views of Surf Life Saving Tasmania.

It is expected that user contributions will be done in a respectful manner and will not indulge in personal attacks. Therefore, comments may be deleted if they contain:

  • Hate speech;
  • Profanity, obscenity or vulgarity;
  • Nudity in profile pictures;
  • Defamation to a person or people;
  • Name calling, bullying and/or personal attacks;
  • Trolling of any description;
  • Comments whose main purpose are to sell a product;
  • Comments that infringe on copyrights;
  • Spam comments, such as the same comment posted repeatedly; and
  • Other comments that are deemed inappropriate.

Violations of the terms of use may cause the user to be banned. While we monitor our channels closely, we do not moderate 24/7 and as a result some commenting functions may be turned off or comments restricted.
