Code of conduct for social media

Feel free to visit our social media platforms on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and blog, and feel free to comment when you’re there. And please help us keep discussions on a serious and inclusive level by following the rules below.

The following is not permitted:

  • Foul language
  • Commercial messages, spam or misleading information
  • Threats, harassment, personal attacks or defamation
  • Links to the above-stated materials
  • Pretending to be someone you are not, for example, by using someone else’s name, or assuming several identities in a discussion
  • Posting content, videos and images that infringe on third-party copyright or other intellectual property rights, or where the origin of the content is unclear
  • Chatting people up or making intimate proposals

The Swedish Institute reserves the right to remove any content that is not permitted according to the list above.

The comments function is provided and monitored according to the Swedish Bulletin Board Systems Act (BBS, link in Swedish). The act entails that the Swedish Institute must continuously remove posts that contain inciteful language, hate speech, child pornography, depictions of violence, or copyright-infringing material. In Sweden hate speech means threatening or insulting a group of people on the basis of race, skin colour, national or ethnic origin, faith or sexual orientation. Any individual who posts something that violates applicable law may be held personally liable.

Links may be used to provide additional information or source references to posts, but other visitors should not need to follow the link to understand what the post is about. In other words, pure link posting is not permitted.
If you have any views or comments on the moderation of the social media platforms, you can send them to the Swedish Institute’s email address.

Comments that violate any of these rules may be deleted.

Users who violate any of the above-stated rules may be blocked by the Swedish Institute. Commenters who continuously violate these rules may be blocked.
Please note that comments that are posted on facebook.com/studyinsweden, instagram.com/studyinsweden, and youtube.com/sweden are open to the public. In fact, all correspondence with a Swedish public authority is open to the public, which means that anyone, including the mass media, has the right to read it. This is stated in the Swedish principle of public access to information.
