Integrative Nutrition Online Community Manifesto

health coaching social media

Integrative Nutrition has created this Online Community Manifesto to outline the expectations we hold for ourselves, and our community when engaging in online forums via social media. This manifesto states the purpose of our online communities, the integrity we encourage in online conversations, and specific information about our code of conduct and non-solicitation policy. 


We're here because we want to share health and happiness - and we know you do too. We also want to make sure that we are fostering a virtual community in line with our mission. We'll highlight exciting efforts and events from our students and graduates, and often re-share content that our friends have shared with us, because we want to support you and all of the amazing things that you’re doing. We will always give you credit when credit is due and will link to the original content whenever possible. Of course, we are committed to always respecting copyright laws as well.

Respect.We believe your time is valuable, so we will share information and content with the Integrative Nutrition community that specifically adds value to you as a group. We will not participate in spam-related activities. We will maintain a zero-tolerance policy for language that is intentionally harassing, obscene, threatening, or defamatory, regardless of its intended target - that's just not what we're about. Please also keep all discussions focused on the curriculum and related topics that help build a sense of community. We ask that you refrain from discussing religious or political beliefs. We reserve the right to remove any posts that violate this policy.

Open, Honest Dialogue.We look forward to sharing lots of great information with you. However, we can't share proprietary and/or confidential information about ourselves or anybody else.

Code of Conduct + Non-Solicitation Policy.We will not post information that is insulting, obscene, profane, or otherwise intentionally harmful or incendiary. We remain committed to this code of conduct and ask that you maintain similar standards when sharing with us.

We receive many requests from people who have valuable services they would like to offer our community. While we appreciate these offers, we take the privacy of our community seriously, and solicitation is not permitted as per Facebook’s guidelines. Anyone who acts as a representative of any organization, educational or otherwise, is prohibited from directly or indirectly soliciting the Integrative Nutrition community members as potential purchasers of any product or service. We do not permit sales, marketing, or advertising of any kind to fellow community members on any of our social platforms. Personal posts which advertise about products or services will be removed. We appreciate your understanding.
