Posting Policies

Fresno State welcomes interaction on its social media sites (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, etc.). We welcome discussions about Fresno State programs, issues, events and activities but we request that comments posted be on-topic and respectful of the rights and opinions of others. 

All content and comments on Fresno State’s Facebook page are governed by Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which state that users may not (a) "post unauthorized commercial solicitations (such as spam)"; (b) "bully, intimidate, or harass any user"; (c) "post content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or that contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence"; or (d) "do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory." We urge you to report prohibited content to Facebook by selecting “report as abuse.”

Fresno State reserves the right to moderate and remove inappropriate posts. We encourage you to share your opinions and comment freely; however, if your comments are advertising (for non-Fresno State events, programs, opportunities or items), spam or go against Facebook policies, they will be deleted. While Fresno State supports free speech, comments posted by others on Fresno State’s social media do not reflect the opinions or policies of Fresno State or its employees and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of those posts. 

Users, please ignore the trolls. Some Facebook users will deliberately post comments on the page in order to elicit responses from other users. Don't get baited into an argument no one can win.

This policy is subject to change at the discretion of Fresno State.

If you have an event or story you would like the university to showcase, or have questions, please email us.
