Social media guidelines

There are many forms of social media networks available – Twitter and Facebook are two of the larger, more popular social networking brands, while others include Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube. Posting information on these social network channels is immediate and visible, and a different form of communication to emailing or even addressing people face to face, as the potential for reaching a far wider audience is increased (with sharing, trending, retweeting, and suchlike). For this reason we always maintain a professional tone and standard when we use social media channels.

We would be grateful if you could comply with our guidelines when promoting titles or articles that you publish with us – naturally we will do the same when we mention your material:

  1. Any tweet you post (including replies) is publicly viewable, and can be found via a search in Twitter, Google, or the Library of Congress, and read by anyone. Please be careful with all social media posts, even though the other services make permanent retraction possible.
  2. Please bear in mind that social media tools are not broadcast technologies – social media is a multi-way communication technology.
  3. Please don’t follow the personal accounts of Taylor & Francis employees  –  this could result in customers recognizing the names of Taylor & Francis staff and trying to contact them via their personal accounts, thereby intruding into their private life. Please do follow our official accounts!
  4. When mentioning our products, only mention published content or books in production – please don’t talk about contracted books or journals.
  5. Please always refer users to Taylor & Francis websites (such as Taylor & Francis Online, Routledge.com, Psypress.com, etc.) as a preference when pointing people to your content.
