Office of Fair Trading on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube
Due to the changing nature of communication on the internet, the Department of Justice and Attorney-General is now utilising web-based group messaging services and social networking sites.
We will use these new communication media to keep you more informed about what´s happening at the Office of Fair Trading
Why are we using Twitter, Facebook and YouTube?
Of course, our use of these media will be influenced by your participation with them.
Will we respond to your posts, comments, replies or direct messages?
No, not at the moment. As using the internet this way is new to us, we will initially use Twitter and Facebook only to inform you. We hope that we'll be able to respond in the future. However, this will depend on your uptake of these services. We read all @replies and direct messages and make sure constructive comments or helpful suggestions are forwarded on to the appropriate areas.
If you're already a 'tweeter', follow us. If you use Facebook, become a friend or a fan.
You should contact the Office of Fair Trading by clicking on the links below if you have:
- formal request, comment or enquiry
- complaint against businesses or products
- complaint about our services.
Direct messages from Twitter or through Facebook are not considered correspondence at this time.
Please be aware that Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are public spaces on the internet, and that all interaction is publicly viewable and searchable over time.
