Please be aware that Facebook                                pages are visible to anyone with internet access.    LinkedIn ​– IHRC’s LinkedIn subgroup “ABA International: International Human Rights” is a                        “closed” group. The subgroup is “closed” for the protection of members who live in more                              restrictive countries, who might not otherwise feel comfortable contributing to or participating in                          group discussions. A “closed” group means that only group members see the contents of the                              discussion board and that the content posted to the discussion board is not indexed to search                                engines. Additionally, only group members can post items to the discussion board or comment on                              other members’ posts.     Everyone who joins IHRC’s LinkedIn subgroup receives a Welcome letter that includes a copy of                              the group rules. The group rules are also located at the top of the sub‐group’s main discussion                                  page. Simply click the “i” (for information) and then select “Group Rules”. Please pay due                              attention to the posting rules (e.g., no long titles, no titles in all caps, no URLs as titles, no                                      harassing posts, no spam, etc). By joining the group, members agree to abide by the rules. We                                  reserve the right to remove any discussions that do not comply with the rules or are otherwise                                  deemed inappropriate for the group. We reserve the right to remove any group member who                              repeatedly violates the rules.     Slideshare ​– Slideshare is the world's largest community for sharing PowerPoint, OpenOffice                        presentations, Keynote, PDF and infographics.
