Social Media Policy

Social Media is a fantastic communication tool that is used every day around the world, allowing people to connect and disseminate information via various channels. The Queensland Rifle Association (QRA) recognises the benefits of social media as an important tool of engagement and enrichment for its members and the importance it plays in increasing the awareness and profile of the QRA, Shooting, athletes and more.

However we need to remember that as a representative of QRA, your activity on social media is reflective of this brand. It is important that QRA’s reputation is not tarnished by anyone using social media tools inappropriately, particularly in relation to any content that might reference the organisation.

QRA, Member Bodies, Associations and Clubs are highly respected organisations by the public, our international affiliates, national and international stakeholders and supporters. QRA also has a corporate responsibility to protect our stakeholders and affiliates by maintaining a positive reputation by association.

Therefore, QRA has introduced this Social Media policy to provide our members, staff and volunteers, a guide to appropriate and accepted social media use.

Social Media Channels

This policy covers all forms of social media and includes, but is not limited to:

  • Maintaining an account, profile or page on social or business networking sites (such as but not limited to Facebook, Google+MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram);
  • Content sharing including but not limited to Snapchat, Periscope, Flickr, YouTube, Vine and Vimeo;
  • Commenting in blogs for personal or business reasons;
  • Leaving product or service reviews on retailer sites, or customer review sites;
  • Taking part in conversations on public and private web forums (message boards); or
  • Editing user-driven public pages ie. Wikipedia.

The intent of this policy is to include anything posted online where information is shared that might affect members, colleagues, clients, sponsors, affiliates, stakeholders or QRA as an organisation.
