Guidelines for participation

We encourage social media conversations with or about MaineHealth. You are welcome to comment, and share your experiences. We make reasonable efforts to monitor participation to ensure that participants stay on topic, are courteous and refrain from offensive comments. Information posted on any of our social media channels is not medical advice and under no circumstances does it replace a consultation with a health care professional.

Opinions and/or views expressed on MaineHealth social media channels represent the thoughts of the individual commenters, and not those of MaineHealth nor our system organizations. MaineHealth reserves the sole right to review, edit and/or delete any comments. Comments including, but not limited to, the following may be deleted or edited by the administrators:

  • Comments that violate the privacy of our patients and their families;
  •  Abusive or hurtful comments;
  • Off-topic and redundant comments (this includes promotion of events, groups, pages, web sites, organizations and programs not related to or affiliated with MaineHealth or Raising Readers);
  • Comments that use foul language or "hate speech" (racial-, ethnic- or gender-bashing language);
  • Personal attacks or defamatory comments (i.e., making negative personal comments about a fellow commenter, instead of just expressing a difference of opinion);
  • Content that violates copyright or other law, or that may be confidential.
