Responding to enquiries and moderation

The SAFA social media accounts are monitored during business hours (Monday-Friday, 9.00am-5.00pm) excluding public holidays. Accounts may also be intermittently monitored outside of business hours subject to staff availability and business needs (for example, emergency management).

Comments may be disabled on posts during out of hours or when resources are unavailable.

SAFA will respond to enquiries and direct messages sent to our social media accounts in the same manner as the department responds to emails and other customer service messages. Social media responses may be relatively informal and links to specific / expanded information will be provided.

Terms of Use

While SAFA welcomes questions and relevant commentary on our social media pages, we expect users to be respectful of the site and other users.

SAFA reserves the right to remove any content that does not comply with our Social Media Policy Terms of Use. This includes comments, replies or direct messages that:

  • abuse, harass or threaten others
  • contain misleading, deceptive, false, defamatory or libellous content
  • could be considered prejudicial, racist or inflammatory
  • are considered spam
  • impersonate or falsely represent a person or entity
  • infringe on the intellectual property rights of others
  • promote sale of products or services for any commercial purpose unless you have our written consent to do so
  • contain personal information (email addresses, phone numbers or private addresses).

Following and sharing

SAFA may like, share or re-publish content outside of our regular portfolio. This does not constitute endorsement of content.

Similarly, we may choose to follow other organisations or individuals. Being followed by SAFA social media channels does not imply endorsement of any kind.

Link shortening

Unless they are already very short SAFA may shorten Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) with commonly-used link compressing services, such as Bitly or Hootsuite’s ow.ly.

Privacy

In accordance with South Australian Government State Records Act 1997 and The Archives Act 1983 all social media content will be recorded and archived, as part of legislative requirements for Government of South Australia record keeping.
