Social Media Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Organic Valley Facebook page! We're glad you're here. In order to maintain an enjoyable and informative experience for everyone, we ask that you abide by the following house rules:

Because our social media handles are public and anyone with an account on these platforms can engage with us, we cannot be responsible for views expressed other than our own. 

Please note that we may ban users who we feel violate our community policy. 

Guidelines

Keep on topic. Among other things, we love talking about small organic family farms, our products, work we're doing in the community, preserving and promoting organic standards, sustainable agriculture, human health, and favorite recipes. Avoid speaking directly (positively or negatively) about Organic Valley competitors. Posts that stray too far from what our Coop is about belong in other corners of Facebook. Please also restrict thread comments to the topic at hand. It's good netiquette! Off topic comments may be hidden or deleted.

No political endorsements. While we occasionally post about legislation that directly impacts organic farmers and consumers, we will remove posts that promote specific candidates, political parties, or campaigns. Political endorsements in comments will be hidden or deleted.

Be nice! We love to see debate and discussion on our page, but it should always remain respectful, which means no abusive or obscene posts. We have a lot to learn from one another, and that's best done when acting civil. Hurtful or unkind comments will be hidden or deleted.

Product/service promotion. We're not able to verify the validity of outside products or services, nor do we want our wall to become a billboard of advertisements. Posts or comments promoting products or services will be hidden or deleted.

Promotions. Promotions that are run on our page, by us, are in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered with Facebook. Any information you provide is being submitted to Organic Valley, and not to Facebook. Read our privacy policy: http://ov.coop/privacy for more details.

Thread hijacking and repetitive posts. Please refrain from posting the same or similar comments or questions in numerous places or threads. Duplicates will be hidden or deleted. 


Honesty is the best policy. Represent who you are and the information you are presenting as accurately and truthfully as possible. Posts or comments deemed to be dishonest will be hidden or deleted.

Be cooperative. We aren’t just a cooperative in name, we believe in the power of cooperation and working toward the same mission. Therefore, employees, shareholders, and farmer-members do not discuss internal matters through public social media channels. If posts or comments do not meet guidelines, they will be hidden or deleted.

Respect fellow social media users. The use of foul, offensive, derogatory language or making degrading statements about other individuals or groups of people. Disrespectful comments and posts will be deleted.

Additionally, the following conversation and imagery is prohibited on our social media pages: 

  • Profane, obscene, inappropriate, disruptive language.
  • Indecent, sexually explicit or pornographic material of any kind—including masked profanity where symbols, initials, intentional misspellings or other characters are used to suggest profane language.

  • False, inaccurate, libelous or otherwise misleading in any way.
