The social media sites represented on the University at Albany’s home page (Facebook, Twitter, etc) are produced and maintained by the University’s Communications & Marketing office. Links to content or other Internet sites should not be construed as an endorsement of the organizations, entities, views or content contained therein. The University is not responsible for the content of those external web sites.

The Communications & Marketing office at UAlbany regularly reviews content posted to its social media sites. We appreciate your comments, posts and responses, and encourage your questions and constructive feedback. In an effort to create and maintain a quality environment for everyone, we request that participants post content and commentary that is relevant and respectful to our online community. Specifically, please refrain from posting content including:

  • Profane, libelous, slanderous, or otherwise inappropriate language,
  • Spam,
  • Commercial or advertisements,
  • Promotions not related to or affiliated with the University at Albany.

The University reserves the right to remove any content for any reason from its social media sites.

By submitting content to any of the University's social media sites, users understand and acknowledge that this information is available to the public, and that the University may use this information for internal and external promotional purposes. Please note that other participants may use posted information beyond the control of UAlbany. Users who do not wish to have information they have made available via these sites used, published, copied and/or reprinted, should not post on the social media sites.

To promote the successful use of social media by the University affiliated shows, programs and other entities, we have developed and will continue to provide ongoing social media guidance including some common best practices and recommendations for posting in social media communities.
