ESOT Social Media Guidelines

While we encourage the use of social media (#SoMe) before, during, and after an ESOT event as a way to share information and network with other attendees, we remind you to adhere to ESOT’s social media do’s and don’ts.



— Follow ESOT accounts on Twitter: @ESOTtransplant - @ESOT2017 - @ELITA_ELTR;
Instagram (@european_society_organtx)

— Like ESOT on Facebook at @ESOTtransplant

— Join the ESOT group on LinkedIn at:

— Join the #ESOTtrustedPartner group on Linkedin:

— Follow ESOT and the Congress on Linkedin  

— Tweet about what you hear and learn at our events, but refrain from sharing when the speaker explicitly  asks not to share. Talks are tweetable and shareable by default, but speakers can ask that attendees not to share specific details or slides.

— Converse and network with other attendees before, during, and after the events.

— Communicate with respect and consideration for others, and keep criticism constructive.

— Use common sense and courtesy when tweeting. The “Golden Rule” is: tweet unto others as you would have them tweet unto you. We are a community of professionals and we should conduct ourselves professionally.

— Be generous with compliments and feel free to share interesting links to projects and materials, highlighting colleague’s research in a positive way. The tone of tweets should always be polite and respectful, as if you were speaking to the presenter directly.

— Please be prudent about tweeting unpublished research results.



— Capture, transmit, or redistribute data presented at the meeting – this may preclude its later publication in a scientific journal. It is possible that sharing of data without the speakers’ consent on public domain may preclude subsequent publications in a scholarly journal and/or compromise their scientific progress. Additionally, data taken in isolation may be inappropriately interpreted and result in harmful consequences.

— Post copyrighted or trademarked material for material protected by other intellectual property rights.

— Use ESOT’s social media platforms to comment on medical, legal, or litigious matters.

— Post derogatory, demeaning, inflammatory, offensive, disrespectful, hateful, sales-oriented, or otherwise inappropriate comments.

People who participate in social media activity are expected to:

— Maintain a courteous and respectful demeanour in their comments and posts.

— Contribute value and expertise.

— Represent themselves and their organisations truthfully and professionally.

— Recognize that social media conversations include transplant professionals, patients, policymakers, reporters, and the general public.
