Disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability
This gives the online platform the right to deny the validity, or not hold itself liable, for your content.
Social media only enables you to be heard. What you publish is of your own volition.
Think. Reflect. Post.
Think twice before you post. Think before you react. Validate facts before sharing.
Being on social media platforms automatically reels you in to a much larger community. Social Media amplifies your voice and spreads your message faster.
It is a privilege to have access to this power. Along with great power is great responsibility.
It pays to be mindful of how social media opens a huge door of opportunity for you.
Make an impact. Make your participation worth it.
