The royal family has been dealing with negative people who have been posting toxic messages on their official social media account and have now published new social media rules.
The royals’ new social media rules have likely been put in place to protect the most precious members of the family, like Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, both of whom have been the subject of a lot of negativity as of late.
The royal family posted the community guidelines on its official website earlier today in its effort to curb unruly behavior on its platforms.
“These guidelines are in place to help create a safe environment, on all social media channels run by The Royal Family, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace,” a statement on the royal’s website reads.
The aim of our social media channels is to create an environment where our community can engage safely in debate and is free to make comments, questions, and suggestions. We ask that anyone engaging with our social media channels shows courtesy, kindness, and respect for all other members of our social media communities. In order to help create this safe environment, we have set out some guidelines which apply to any engagement with us or other members of the community on any of our social media channels.
According to the press release, comments on social media must not:
- “Contain spam, be defamatory of any person, deceive others, be obscene, offensive, – threatening, abusive, hateful, inflammatory or promote sexually explicit material or violence.”
- “Promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.”
- “Breach any of the terms of any of the social media platforms themselves.”
- “Be off-topic, irrelevant or unintelligible.”
- “Contain any advertising or promote any services.”
People who breach these rules of engagement may be reported to law enforcement authorities, depending on the Royals’ discretion.
