Social Media Guidelines / Comment Policy

Posted comments and images on the city's social media channels do not necessarily represent the views of the City of Orange Beach or its facilities. External, non-City of Orange Beach links on this site do not constitute official endorsement on behalf of the City of Orange Beach or its facilities.

While we encourage the sharing of thoughts and opinions on the city's social media channels, we expect that this will be done in a respectful manner. Please note: a 'like', 'comment' or 'share' does not equal an endorsement on behalf of the city. The city does not agree with or endorse every comment that individuals post on its pages.

The city's goal is to share information and ideas with as many individuals as possible and our policy is to accept the majority of comments made to our profiles. Therefore, a comment will be deleted if it contains:

  • Hate speech
  • Profanity, obscenity or vulgarity
  • Nudity in profile pictures
  • Defamation to a person or people
  • Name calling and/or personal attacks
  • Comments whose main purpose are to sell a product, and
  • Comments that infringe on copyrights,
  • Spam comments, such as the same comment posted repeatedly on a profile
  • Comments unrelated to content in the post, and
  • Other comments that the City of Orange Beach's Administration Office or its facilities with social media channels deems inappropriate.

Repeated violations of the City of Orange Beach's comment policy may cause the author to be blocked from the social media platform it occurred on. We understand that social media is a 24/7 medium; however, our moderation capabilities are not. We may not see every inappropriate comment right away, and we are trusting in the maturity of our community to ignore personal attacks and negative speech or respond politely.

In case of an emergency, dial 911. Please contact helpdesk@orangebeachal.gov if you have any questions.
