Social Media

Social Media Netiquette

The Expert Council on Integration and Migration (SVR) uses social media to engage in an open dialogue with all those who are interested in issues around integration and migration. We look forward to reading your posts and comments. It is important to us that we all treat each other with respect – in the same way we would if we were meeting face to face. We therefore ask that you follow our rules on posting comments. If you do not follow these rules, we reserve the right to delete specific content and report it to the relevant platform operator.

Please apply the following netiquette when posting comments on the SVR’s social media channels.

  • Respect

Please ensure that your comments are fair and polite, and please stick to the facts. Never personally attack anyone or direct arguments against any specific person. We reserve the right to delete or hide any racist, sexist or other discriminatory comments as well as hate speech, and to report it to the platform operator and block the person leaving the comment. We also reserve the right to delete identical or similar comments by anyone attempting to influence the discussion rather than to engage in proper dialogue. Comments containing commercial advertising will also be deleted.

  • Responsibility – including for quotations and images

The SVR takes no responsibility for users’ comments – each user is responsible for their own comments. By posting a comment, users grant SVR the right to keep that comment permanently on its social media channels. Should you wish to use a quotation in your comment, please state the source and author so that other users are able to check it. Please only post images for which you hold the copyright.

  • Questions and response times

The SVR always aims to respond to questions and comments. Please note that this may take a little time. If you write to us in the evening or at the weekend, we will deal with your matter on the next weekday. Please send any general questions about the work of the SVR to: email hidden; JavaScript is required

  • Privacy protection

Protect your own privacy and avoid including addresses, telephone numbers and private websites. Do not publish any personal data of third parties. Please note that the terms and conditions of use of the respective social media platforms apply and are available online. For more information about data protection, go to

The SVR reserves the right to amend these netiquette rules at any time. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to hearing from you.
