General guidelines for Engagement with Corning Social Media Properties: How we engage and how to engage with us
Connect with Corning
We engage with our stakeholders through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The guidelines below will give you a better idea on how to engage with us in social media, what you can expect from us, and where to find more information.
Corning’s Twitter Engagement Guidelines:
Twitter asks a very basic question of its users: “What’s happening?” And we know the answer to that question – At Corning, we are working to turn possibilities into realities in the area of specialty glass and ceramics technology.
Through our Twitter accounts we aim to provide you with information on Corning’s major activities and initiatives. We welcome your thoughts on any and all of those topics.
Please note: We won’t be able to reply to product issues raised through Twitter beyond very general recommendations. If you have a specific question, issue or complaint about a Corning product, please email Corning Incorporated or Corning® Gorilla Glass.
What you should know about our Twitter engagement:
- We are committed to having a dialogue with our followers. We count on you to use @ messages in a way that contributes to the dialogue. Please support any claims with links to information sources whenever possible. We value opinions; we value them even more when you back them up with facts.
- We strive to respond to as many relevant questions and comments as possible, but we reserve the right to use our judgment in selecting the messages we respond to.
- Following a Twitter account or including an account in a Twitter list does not constitute an endorsement; the same applies to re-tweeting messages posted on accounts that Corning does not own, or marking them as “favorites.”

Forward Looking and Cautionary Statements
Corning does not intend to share any “forward looking” statements regarding our organization through any of our social media channels. Nevertheless, should any statements occur through these channels that may be deemed “forward looking” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, such statements would be based on current expectations and assumptions about Corning’s financial results and business operations, that involve substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include: the effect of global political, economic and business conditions; conditions in the financial and credit markets; currency fluctuations; tax rates; product demand and industry capacity; competition; reliance on a concentrated customer base; manufacturing efficiencies; cost reductions; availability of critical components and materials; new product commercialization; pricing fluctuations and changes in the mix of sales between premium and non-premium products; new plant start-up or restructuring costs; possible disruption in commercial activities due to terrorist activity, armed conflict, political or financial instability, natural disasters, adverse weather conditions, or major health concerns; adequacy of insurance; equity company activities; acquisition and divestiture activities; the level of excess or obsolete inventory; the rate of technology change; the ability to enforce patents; product and components performance issues; retention of key personnel; stock price fluctuations; and adverse litigation or regulatory developments. These and other risk factors are detailed in Corning’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the day that they are made, and Corning undertakes no obligation to update them in light of new information or future events.
