Attribution guideline

  • Mobile devices not defined anywhere.
  • Request from board to use more prescriptive language where possible.
  • 1-user interaction: suggestion from a company to have a side swipe for this, as this is what users are expecting. Maybe add a note to that effect.
  • Add section on direct and indirect publishing on social media.

Changes: “should” to “must” where possible, added text as suggested above.
