We want Sociabatt to continue to be a safe place for expression. Help us foster this community. Post only your own photos and videos, copyrighted photos and always follow the law. Respect everyone and don’t spam people or post nudity.
Share only photos and videos that you’ve taken or had the right to share.
As always, you own the content you post on Sociabatt. Remember to post authentic content, and don’t post anything you’ve copied or collected from the Internet that you don’t have the right to post.
Post photos and videos that are appropriate for a diverse audience.
We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Sociabatt. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is are not allowed.
People like to share photos or videos of their children. For safety reasons, there are times when we may remove images that show nude or partially-nude children. Even when this content is shared with good intentions, it could be used by others in unanticipated ways.
Foster meaningful and genuine interactions.
Help us stay spam-free by not artificially collecting votes, followers, or shares, posting repetitive comments or content, or repeatedly contacting people for commercial purposes without their consent.
Follow the law.
Sociabatt is not a place to support or praise terrorism, organized crime, or hate groups. Offering sexual services, buying or selling firearms and illegal or prescription drugs (even if it’s legal in your region) is also not allowed. Remember to always follow the law when offering to sell or buy other regulated goods. Accounts promoting online gambling, online real money games of skill or online lotteries must get our prior written permission before using any of our products.
We have zero tolerance when it comes to sharing sexual content involving minors or threatening to post intimate images of others.
Respect other members of the Sociabatt community.
We want to foster a positive, diverse community. We remove content that contains credible threats or hate speech, content that targets private individuals to degrade or shame them, personal information meant to blackmail or harass someone, and repeated unwanted messages. We do generally allow stronger conversation around people who are featured in the news or have a large public audience due to their profession or chosen activities.
It’s never OK to encourage violence or attack anyone based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, disabilities, or diseases. When hate speech is being shared to challenge it or to raise awareness, we may allow it. In those instances, we ask that you express your intent clearly.
Serious threats of harm to the public and personal safety aren’t allowed. This includes specific threats of physical harm as well as threats of theft, vandalism, and other financial harm. We carefully review reports of threats and consider many things when determining whether a threat is credible.
Maintain our supportive environment by not glorifying self-injury.
The Sociabatt community cares for each other and is often a place where people facing difficult issues such as eating disorders, cutting, or other kinds of self-injury come together to create awareness or find support. We try to do our part by providing education in the app and adding information in the Help Center so people can get the help they need.
Encouraging or urging people to embrace self-injury is counter to this environment of support, and we’ll remove it or deactivated/disable accounts if it’s reported to us. We may also remove content identifying victims or survivors of self-injury if the content targets them for attack or humor.
Be thoughtful when posting newsworthy events.
We understand that many people use Sociabatt to share important and newsworthy events. Some of these issues can involve graphic images. Because so many different people and age groups use Sociabatt, we may remove videos of intense, graphic violence to make sure Sociabatt stays appropriate for everyone.
Help us keep the community strong:
- Each of us is an important part of the Sociabatt community. If you see something that you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by using our reporting option. We have a global team that reviews these reports and works as quickly as possible to remove content that doesn’t meet our guidelines. Even if you or someone you know doesn’t have a Sociabatt account, you can still send an email at [email protected]. When you want to send, try to provide as much information as possible, such as links, usernames, and descriptions of the content, so we can find and review it quickly. We may remove entire content if either the imagery or associated captions violate our guidelines.
- You may find the content you don’t like but doesn’t violate the Community Guidelines. If that happens, you can unfollow or block the person who posted it. If there’s something you don’t like in a comment on one of your posts, you can delete that comment.
- Many disputes and misunderstandings can be resolved directly between members of the community. If one of your battles, photos or videos was posted by someone else, you could try commenting on the post and asking the person to take it down. If that doesn’t work, you can contact us on [email protected] to report it. If you believe someone is violating your trademark, you can contact us on [email protected] to report it. Don’t target the person who posted it by posting screenshots and drawing attention to the situation because that may be classified as harassment.
- We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there’s a risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.
