The University Advancement Office at Stony Brook University welcomes interaction through
comments, photos, discussions, and wall posts on its social media sites (e.g., Facebook,
Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube). We consider these sites to be the equivalent
of our website: an official face of the institution.
These guidelines address University Advancement’s official presence on social media
sites, including the Stony Brook University Alumni Association Facebook page. University
Advancement does not take responsibility for pages developed by others.
The contents of the Stony Brook Alumni Association Facebook wall, discussion board,
photos, and other areas available for posts are a combination of content submitted
by University Advancement personnel and Facebook members (e.g., students, alumni,
staff, and friends). Only content added by official Facebook site administrators under
the "Stony Brook University Alumni Association Facebook" page's name is considered
official University content.
Content submitted by individuals does not in any way reflect the opinions or policies
of Stony Brook University or the Stony Brook Alumni Association. Content and posts
are bound by the
capacity to Twitter, Instagram, and/or any additional social media sites but uses
our hashtags (
#sbualumjobs) or tags the handle
@stonybrookalum is not considered official University content and is also not considered the responsibility
of Stony Brook University Advancement or the Stony Brook Alumni Association.
Content submitted by individuals is not initially screened or evaluated during the
submission process; however, Stony Brook University reserves the right, but is not
obligated, to remove or block any and all content, posts, images, etc., that it deems
inappropriate, commercial solicitations, factually erroneous/libelous, or otherwise
completely off-topic at its discretion. Any unlawful and/or threatening content will
be removed and reported to the site on which the content appeared.
We thank you in advance for your contributions and for your help in creating a safe
and vibrant online community.
