Propelify Insider Guide

Where Innovators Propel Each Other

Are you a member of our Propelify Insiders Facebook Group? If you haven’t joined yet, you should….if you HAVE and haven’t been active lately–JOIN IN! We want to help you propel!

To help folks feel more clear and comfortable posting and sharing in the group, we created this Insider Guide. Some people call them rules. We prefer *guidelines*.

Check out these swanky images and a video of Aaron Price (CEO) and Dillan DiGiovanni (Community Manager) introducing the new guidelines. We hope this makes the process of settling in and sharing in the group easier! Let me know if they don’t.

THE SHORT:

Why get involved: your time is valuable, here’s why you’d want to join us and what you can get from membership.

What to post: think you have something great to share? Run it past our list of what we’re looking for and want value it provides other members.

Spam Guidelines / Do Not Promote: here’s what doesn’t work. Made simple and clear!

Culture: it IS possible to create a positive, inspiring community on FB. Propelify Insiders are proof!

About Us: who the heck is in here? US! And YOU!

The Long

Propelify Insiders is a community of innovators who help propel others (and themselves). We’re a diverse community of people from many different identities, cultures, and beliefs. We’ve spent time thinking about the different points of view that create a safe and open environment for everyone.

As a member of Propelify Insiders, please agree to these guidelines. We’re committed to these guidelines and we hope you are too. Ignoring or overstepping these boundaries may result in deleted content or other restrictions including removal from our group.

Our Propelify Insiders Community thrives from ideas and input from our members. Please email/contact Dillan DiGiovanni, Community Manager, at dillan@propelify.com with any questions, comments or suggestions to our Community Guidelines.

Other:

Post photos and videos that are appropriate for a diverse audience.

Foster meaningful and genuine interactions, respecting all opinions and perspectives.  Respectful debate welcome.  

Respect other members of the Propelify community in and out of the group.

We want to foster a positive, diverse community. We remove content that contains credible threats or hate speech, content that targets private individuals to degrade or shame them, personal information meant to blackmail or harass someone, and repeated unwanted messages. We do generally allow stronger conversation around topics or people who are featured in the news or have a large public audience due to their profession or chosen activities relevant to our purpose as a group.

Be thoughtful when posting “newsworthy” events.

We understand that many people use social media to share important and newsworthy events. Some of these issues can involve graphic images. Because so many different people are in our group, we ask that you strongly consider the benefit of sharing for the good of all members.
