The significance of social networks for receiving and spreading information is enormous today. Anyone can have accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. However, it isn’t only about positive information. There may be various accusations and comments regarding specific people, including royal personalities such as Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton.
The British royal family members, who perform important duties according to their status, aren't permitted to have personal accounts on social networks. These are the rules corresponding to the image formation issue.
Communication with the people is carried out through official accounts on social networks. For example, the royal family has almost 3.9 million followers on Twitter, 4.6 million on Instagram, and 4.8 million likes on their Facebook page.
Recently, Kensington Palace has been concerned about the appearance of a large number of negative comments regarding Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle on various occasions. It was decided to act. Asking the creators of Twitter and Instagram for help, the royalties found their support in the fight against negativity.
Guidelines for the social networking community have been compiled and distributed to apply to all official Palace accounts. From now on, messages of an offensive, wrathful nature aimed at inciting hostility on national, sexual, religious grounds will be deleted, and especially zealous users will be blocked or reported to the police. At the same time, all users will be asked to show their respect and goodwill to all members of the community.
The stated measures are aimed at creating a "safe environment," where everyone is able to express their point of view, receive answers, and debate about specific issues in the appropriate form.
