The ethics of using meta tags can be tricky to pin down.
We use meta tags in our articles to provide context to our content, and the tag itself should be understood as a guide.
But when we use meta tag, the guidelines for how we’re using them are often vague.
What is a “meta tag”?
“Meta tags are a set of rules and guidelines that can be used to guide how a particular piece of content should be presented,” explains John McGlone, a media ethics expert at the University of NSW.
“In general, a meta tags is an example of an ethical statement or policy that is a guideline to guide the content or presentation of a piece of news.”
For example, the phrase “we should treat people with disability with dignity” would be considered an ethical one, while “disability is a human right” might not.
But meta tags aren’t limited to news.
There’s also an ethics of sharing meta tags on social media, and what to do when you do, McGlones says.
But if you’re looking for the most ethical way to present content on social networks, then you may want to look elsewhere, says McGlonones. “
This means that people can be expected to read and evaluate this guide objectively, not relying on the opinions of others.”
But if you’re looking for the most ethical way to present content on social networks, then you may want to look elsewhere, says McGlonones.
What are the guidelines that guide meta tags?
“Meta tags come in a range of different flavours,” McGloni says.
There’s the “moral, legal, ethical and social” one, and then there’s the more “technical” one.
The technical category includes things like whether you can include a link in a meta, or whether it can be included as a tag under the heading of a “tag” (see below).
But what about the ethics of the “meta” in a headline?
It’s not clear what the guidelines are when it comes to whether or not meta tags are ethical.
A meta tag is an article that’s being labelled in a way that doesn’t conflict with other elements of the story, such as a “topics” section or “tags”.
But that could also include an ad, he says.
A tag is a way of describing a piece that appears in the article, such that readers can refer to it.
A meta tag can also be a meta element that’s part of a larger story, or part of content, such like a tag on a story about health and diet.
“It’s like a ‘meta’ element, or a ‘tag’,” McGlonis says.
But McGlons says that the ethics for using meta tag in articles will depend on the specific use of the tag.
For example, if a meta headline includes an image, then that image could be considered to be part of the headline, and could therefore be ethical.
But if the image is part of another article, like an image on a photo gallery, then the image could still be considered a meta.
“The ethics will also depend on what your intentions are with the image,” Mc Glones says, and whether it’s to include in a news story or not.
The ethics for meta tags may be a little more complex than it looks, says Andrew McGloney, a researcher at the Centre for Applied Ethics at the Australian National University.
McGlones, who researches the ethics and privacy of social media usage, says that he’s seen meta tags used to describe the contents of a story without a clear ethical statement.
It doesn’t seem to be a very clear ethical position to be taking in this particular case.
“In general I would be concerned that a tag that’s purely an image is being used as a meta,” Mcglones says with a chuckle.
“However, I think there are examples of that where there’s a clear legal obligation to not share a particular image, like in a photo, that would be a valid example of a meta.”
The tag in question might be considered by some to be ethical, but McGloned says that it’s still difficult to make that determination.
Why is it ethical to use meta?
McGloosons says it’s important to remember that the tag isn’t the source of the ethics, it’s the guide to the ethics.
So, if someone wants to publish a story that contains an image of a dog, then it might be ethical to do so, but it might not be ethically correct to do it because of a tag, he explains.
“You might be using it to tell people that they can’t see the dog, or it might indicate that there’s some sort of ethical reason for it,” Mc Glasones says of the ethical tag.
“But I think the ethical element to it is something that’s pretty self-evident.
