AIB Online Community Guidelines

AIB Online Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Australian Institute of Business (AIB) online community

‘Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself.’ – John Dewey


We want to create the best experience for everyone in our online communities, and that means treating others respectfully.

The AIB Online Community consists of any AIB online social platform, including but not limited to our Facebook page, our LinkedIn pages, our Twitter feed, our official Google profile and the Official AIB Blog. Each of these pages is a troll-free zone. By participating in these pages and communities, you promise not to post anything that could be considered obscene, offensive or unjust. Anyone caught trolling will be banned, and will miss out on contributing to our industry network and thought leadership.

What is a troll, you say? Glad you asked!

A troll is a person who does any of the following (these types of posts/material will not be tolerated):

  • posts abusive, defamatory, pornographic, or obscene posts , including material that vilifies, incites violence or hatred, or is likely to offend, insult or humiliate others based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation or any physical or mental disability;
  • posts fraudulent, deceptive or misleading links;
  • posts content that is in violation of any intellectual property rights;
  • posts content that is in violation of any law or regulation;
  • posts content that is otherwise inappropriate or offensive;
  • posts photographs or video of another person without that person’s consent;
  • posts inflammatory or self-serving content motivated by a standing relationship with a competitor.
  • posts advertisements or messages that are commercial in nature (unless we give you permission) or messages that are “junk mail” or SPAM; or
  • posts content that pose or create a privacy or security risk to any person.

Plus, we reserve the right to remove any post that contains the material above, which seeks to damage our social media community, or displays threatening, bullying or offensive behaviour towards community members, administrators of our sites, our programmes, our organisation or AIB employees.

Continued behaviour of this nature will result in the offending user/s being blocked and/or being reported to the relevant social media platform.

Can I start engaging with AIB’s community of thought leaders, industry professionals, students, alumni and staff now?

Soon, but we’d love it if you finished reading this first, because we want to keep this page as friendly and troll free as possible. That being said;

We’ll have no liability for any loss or damage caused by or in connection with the removal of any post or if you are blocked access or reported to a social media platform due to your behaviour.

Also, as a member of this community, you understand that even though we can remove any offending posts or block access to the page, there may be times when members of the community post this type of material, and it will be read by others before we get a chance to take action.

In this situation we assume no liability or responsibility – but we’ll do our best to remove it as soon as possible.

Is there anything else?

Just one more thing! As a part of your community, we promise not to post more than necessary, or make your own social newsfeeds look unsightly.

If you have comments or feedback, if you think someone is being disrespectful, then your email will be welcomed at
