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, the mayor, council or employees thereof. 

All posts by individuals represent only the opinions of the individual; lock of response or comment by the city does not indicate agreement with statements or comments made. 

Reference or link to external, non-City of Orange Beach websites, businesses or organizations on this site do not constitute official endorsement by the City of Orange Beach, the mayor, council or employees.  A 'like', 'comment' or 'share' does not equal an endorsement on behalf of the city, the mayor, council or employees.  

While we encourage the sharing of thoughts and opinions on the city's social media channels, we expect and request that this will be done in a respectful manner.  

The city's goal is to share information and ideas with as many individuals as possible and our policy is to allow public comments made to our profiles. Orange Beach is a family-friendly city and, therefore, comments or posts of which the primary purpose or subject matter involves incitement of violence or criminal activity, defamation, fraud, or obscenity may be removed in the discretion of the city, specifically, the following will be removed:

  • 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, 
  • Comments that infringe on copyrights,
  • Spam comments, such as the same comment posted repeatedly on a profile
  • Comments unrelated to content in the post, 
  • Other comments that the City of Orange Beach 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. The city may not see every inappropriate comment immediately, and we are trusting in the maturity of our community to ignore personal attacks and/or negative speech or respond politely.

In case of an emergency, dial 911. Please contact the Help Desk via email if you have any questions.
