The 5 core values of Connect

ConnectEtiquette.pngCaption: A drawing of five people having a lively conversation

Connect is approaching its second birthday, and it’s incredible how the forum has grown and changed, driven by the community’s passion for sharing tips and info, solving problems, and helping others explore the world.

 

We’re about to reach 700,000 registered members on Connect. To celebrate this amazing milestone, we wanted to unveil a set of core values — inspired by all of our best moments together — to help new Local Guides see what Connect is all about. These guidelines are different from the Local Guides program rules, but they’re just as important. We hope you’ll find them helpful and motivating as our community grows.

 

  1. We’re welcoming. Anyone can be a Local Guide, no matter where they live or what language they speak. We’re a truly global community! When new people join, we go out of our way to make them feel included.

 

  1. We’re thoughtful. How we use Connect defines the whole community’s experience, so we’re always mindful of how our actions affect others. This means being considerate in big ways (like only writing respectful things about — and to — each other) and small (like only tagging others in posts they’ll be delighted to see, since every tag generates a notification).

 

  1. We’re helpful. Our community thrives because we love to help each other. When we have a question, we post it on Connect so everyone can benefit from the answer. When we know the answer to someone else’s question, we post it in a reply (unless someone else already has). Google Moderators are active every day, looking for chances to jump in and solve problems, but the vast majority of issues are solved by other Local Guides — so keep an eye out for their solutions.

 

  1. We’re original. We post our own words, photos, and videos that we’ve created just for Connect. If we do share something that someone else created, we’re sure to give proper credit.

 

  1. We’re watchful. When we see something wrong, we say something about it. If a post is obscene, offensive, or not allowed for another reason, we tap the three dots at its top-right corner and select “Report Inappropriate Content.”

 

 

Due to the volume of private messages Googlers receive, I do not read or respond to private messages. Please post publicly so others may benefit from your discussion. If you require urgent assistance, please tag a Google Moderator. Thank you!.
