Social Media and the Grottoes of North America
The presence of Grotto Prophets on various social networking sites is growing exponentially and it is drawing attention to the Enchanted Realm. By participating on these sites we should strive to make that attention as positive as possible. When we represent ourselves as Prophets of the Enchanted Realm, we become someone’s impression of the Grotto. As such, it is important that we act accordingly and subscribe to the lessons we are all taught as Prophets in terms of how we communicate with fellow Prophets and the general public.
Social Media Code of Conduct for the Grottoes of North America:
A Prophet should conduct his Social Media activities in a way that reflects his membership in the Grotto. He should act in a way that presents a positive image of his membership in Grotto to the world.
As a Prophet, he must be aware that his postings are a permanent record; therefore, his conduct may influence the world with a positive or negative opinion about him personally and also about any organizations to which he belongs.
His actions on the various Social Media outlets should reflect the highest standards of morality and integrity he would practice within the Grotto.
The posting of pictures or videos of Grotto events must comply with the Supreme Council Code.
Information about Grotto social activities must comply with the regulations already in place for wording and distribution.
