Social Media Community Guidelines

Our social media channels share news, photos, and resources with you about what’s happening at the Northern Ireland Assembly and how you can get involved. You can follow the work of the Assembly and its Committees on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Flickr.


We love hearing feedback if you’ve had a great experience visiting Parliament Buildings or getting involved with our events. And of course, if something’s not right then please tell us so we can fix it. If there’s something we can do to help, like show you how to contact your MLA, we’ll do our best to help. 


We welcome your questions, feedback, and photos from your visits to Parliament Buildings. We encourage respectful discussion between people. You don’t have to agree with what other people say or share, but please treat everybody with dignity, courtesy, and respect.


Please read our social media community guidelines below to find out what we will and won’t accept on any of our social media channels: 


We will report and where possible remove any comments or replies that are direct attacks on someone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexuality, sex, gender, disability or disease.


We will report and block any accounts that express harm to other followers or our moderators, that are selling things, are spam, or do not contribute to the comments and topics raised on the page.


We will report and where possible remove comments that express support for hate groups and terrorists.


The moderators will challenge and discuss any comments that spread misinformation or fake news about the Northern Ireland Assembly.


Social media accounts are not a point of contact for media enquiries, which should be directed to the Communications Office.


We are here to help you. Our friendly social media team is here to answer questions and help with anything related to the Northern Ireland Assembly. We’re here from 10am – 5pm, Monday to Friday. We’ll respond to you as soon as we can in that time frame. 


You can also contact the Assembly Social Media Team by email on or by telephone on 028 90 521137.
