Social media guidelines for your professional use

Social networks have long been an integral part of our daily lives at this juncture, and they play an important role in the working world as well. Technische University Braunschweig maintains official accounts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn, managed by its Communications and Press Service. In addition to this, many of TU Braunschweig’s facilities, institutes and student initiatives are active on social networks. We welcome these separate social networking accounts. It is important for universities to be represented in this realm, to provide information, explain facts and engage in dialogue with society. These social media guidelines offer you support and assistance as you use social networks on behalf of your institute or organisation. If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch with TU Braunschweig’s Communications and Press Service.


For our Facebook account, we have drawn up the following netiquette guidelines. You are welcome to adapt and include them in your social media presence if you like.

Technische Universität Braunschweig uses the Facebook page to keep you up to date on university news, services and life on campus. We appreciate your interest and look forward to a lively exchange with you. Please keep in mind the following netiquette guidelines as you post.

  • Respect: Opinions, discussions and constructive criticism are much appreciated on our page. However, we ask all users to be polite and show each other respect and consideration. Posts that contain offensive, racist, pornographic, unconstitutional or illegal statements will be deleted immediately.
  • Data protection: Data protection is very important to us! Please refrain from posting personal information (such as enrolment numbers, addresses and phone numbers) about yourself or anyone else. Instead, send us a direct message and let us get in touch with you outside of Facebook via e-mail or phone.
  • Language: To enable a fruitful discussion, we ask that you write your posts in either German or English.
  • Advertising: The contents of our page should reflect the many diverse topics that make up TU Braunschweig. Advertising and spam are not welcome and will be deleted.
  • In addition, please follow the standards of the Facebook community and the platform’s general terms of use.
  • In the event of repeated violations of our netiquette guidelines, we reserve the right to block individual users from our Facebook page.
