Social Media

We use a number of social media platforms including:

Most social media channels have their own rules and guidelines, which we always follow. We also have our own house rules to help you interact with us in a safe and appropriate way.

Dos and Don'ts

Only post information you are happy for everyone to see.

Be civil, tasteful and relevant.

Don't swear or use offensive language.

Don't post anything unlawful, libellous, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented or racially offensive.

Don't incite, condone or encourage anything that could result in a criminal offence, civil liability, or breaches any laws regarding competition.

Don't post links or direct others to sites containing viruses, corrupted files, or anything that could damage or interfere with computer hardware or software, or to material which is offensive, or may breach the terms of use of the relevant social media account.

Don't post content copied from elsewhere, which you don't own the copyright for.

Don't post the same message, or very similar messages, more than once, also called "spamming".

Don't publicise your, or anyone else's, personal information, such as contact details.

Don't advertise products or businesses.

Don't impersonate someone else.


Social media should not be used for formal complaints. You can make a complaint online on our website.


'Following' or 'Liking' another organisation or individual doesn't mean that the council endorses them.

The views and opinions posted by others on our social media accounts are their own and not those of Renfrewshire Council.

While we try to ensure that the information on our site is current, we can't guarantee that the information provided on our social media accounts will be complete, accurate or up-to-date.
