Linkedin Group Rules

RULES AND GUIDELINES FOR POSTING AND COMMENTING IN THE eCULTURE LINKEDIN GROUP

Quick tips

As with any community, adherence to basic rules and standards of conduct are vital to creating the most value for everyone. eCulture group members are expected to comply with the guidelines set forth, which are based on best practice guidance. The goal is that the group educate, inform, and connect individuals who are interested in development of eCulture around the world.

Overview

Appropriate posts include articles from reputable media outlets, blogs, company, organisation, or websites that are engaged in furthering eCulture development, either by adoption of digital ways of engagement or through digitisation of ways of working, for example helping organisations achieve paperless status or increase engagement with service users via online methods. Questions to the group can also be posted. Please refer to the guidelines below on appropriate sharing of any associated links.

Articles should be recent (within a few days of publication), date-stamped on the webpage, and not duplicative of recent posts or subjects covered in the group. Sometimes exceptions will be made, but the point is that many news stories are picked up by multiple media outlets. You can use the Search link in the group to see a chronological list of recent posts as well as filter in the main discussion forum on “Recent”.

Questions should reflect that you’ve spent a reasonable amount of time educating yourself by reading articles and expert comments made by members in the group. Questions that don’t rise to the level of the group or promote intelligent discourse may not be approved. Any articles referenced should be relevant and adhere to the article posting guidelines. Questions that are about service providers are not value-added (use Google), product or other rankings (subjective), and creating lists are not allowed.

General Guidelines

To share a relevant news article, please paste the complete, not shortened hyperlink url into the discussion submission box, then wait a few moments for the story to auto-populate via the link (LinkedIn will usually automatically insert the article’s headline and description). Once this occurs, remove the artifact hyperlink you pasted into the discussion box above the auto-populated title and description. You can then add a relevant title of your own, but please make sure it’s clear what the article is about, not simply an exclamation of “Interesting”, or similar non-informative description. You can use the description box below the title to add detail on your reaction, e.g. why you think it’s significant and/or what questions you have about the story.

Please don’t use shortened hyperlinks/urls or related services, e.g. bit.ly, goo.gl, tinyurl.com, ow.ly, hub.am, or other shortened url links, either in new discussion posts or in comments to existing discussions. Instead, please use the complete url for the article.

Given the potential for large volume of submissions, deletion may sometimes occur without notification if these guidelines are not met, along with the potential for the submitter being removed from the group without notice for repeated failure to follow this guidance, e.g. blatant spamming.

Sharing news articles

You can add comments to existing group discussions mentioning relevant businesses, organisations, blogs, articles, etc, but please note that if this are deemed to be just promotion or advertising and not of the form of a value contribution to the discussion they may be removed. As with posts and again given the potential for large volume of submissions, deletion may sometimes occur without notification if these guidelines are not met, along with the potential for the submitter being removed from the group without notice for repeated failure to follow this guidance, e.g. blatant spamming.
