FAME is a place where you can share your LIFE and your experiences, follow people and partecipate in communities and much more. FAME claims to be a safe environment for all users. For this reason you HAVE to share content in according our community guidelines.
Our mission is to create a safe place, and engaging environment where people can express their ideas, pursue their goals and exchange ideas. The goal of our community guidelines is to ensure that our environment is safe and respectful for all of our users everywhere in the world.
Our Community Guidelines apply to everyone, all around the world, and to all types of content. We recognize that words can be interpreted or affect people differently and we try to account for these differences and apply our policies consistently and fairly. While we have a content moderation team working 24/7, we may not always detect content and behavior that violates these standards which means that enforcement may be limited or delayed in some instances. We rely heavily on our users to help alert us and to report content which may violate our terms and guidelines. Users can report potentially violating content using the "report link".
The consequences for violating our Community Guidelines vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person's history on the platform. We may warn someone for a first violation, but if multiple violations occur we may take additional action including restricting a user’s ability to post on FAME for a period of time or even disable their profile. We also may notify law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm, a direct threat to public safety, or a violation of law.
We remove posts, comments and messages and other type of content that w incites or facilitates serious violence. We also remove content, disable accounts, and work with law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety. We also try to consider the language and context in order to distinguish casual statements from content that constitutes a credible threat to public or personal safety. In determining whether a threat is credible, we may also consider additional information like a person's public visibility and the risks to their physical safety.
Dangerous Individuals and Organizations
In an effort to prevent and disrupt real-world harm, we do not allow any organizations or individuals that proclaim a violent mission or are engaged in violence to have a presence on FAME. This includes organizations or individuals involved in the following: Terrorist activity; Organized hate; Human trafficking; Organized violence or criminal activity. We also remove content that expresses support or praise for groups, leaders, or individuals involved in these activities.
Organized Harm and Crime
In an effort to prevent and disrupt offline harm and copycat behavior, we prohibit people from facilitating, organizing, promoting, or admitting to certain criminal or harmful activities targeted at people, businesses, property or animals. We allow people to debate and advocate for the legality of criminal and harmful activities, as well as draw attention to harmful or criminal activity that they may witness or experience as long as they do not advocate for or coordinate harm.
Fraud and Deception
In an effort to prevent fraudulent activity that can harm people or businesses, we remove content that purposefully deceives, willfully misrepresents or otherwise defrauds or exploits others for money or property. This includes content that seeks to coordinate or promote these activities using our services. We also do not allow people to misrepresent themselves on FAME, use fake accounts, artificially boost the popularity of content, or engage in behaviors designed to enable other violations under our Community Guidelines. This policy is intended to protect the security of user accounts and our services, and to create a space where people can trust the people and communities they interact with.
To encourage safety and compliance with common legal restrictions, we prohibit attempts by individuals, manufacturers, and retailers to purchase, sell, or trade non-medical drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, and marijuana. We also prohibit the purchase, sale, gifting, exchange, and transfer of firearms, including firearm parts or ammunition, between private individuals on FAME. Some of these items are not regulated everywhere; however, because of the borderless nature of our community, we try to enforce our policies as consistently as possible. Firearm stores and online retailers may promote items available for sale off of our services as long as those retailers comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We allow discussions about sales of firearms and firearm parts in stores or by online retailers and advocating for changes to firearm regulation. In addition, we reserve the right to prohibit the purchase, sale, gifting, exchange, and transfer of any other regulated goods, such as endangered species and their parts.
Child Exploitation, Abuse and Nudity
We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children/minor. A child/minor is defined as anyone less than 18 years of age. Prohibited content includes photos, videos, arranging real world sexual encounters, implied sexual acts or poses or any other sexually implicit content. Prohibited content also includes acting or failing to act, causing injury, death, emotional harm or other risk of serious harm to a child/minor. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, and emotional abuse. We know that sometimes people share nude images of their own children with good intentions; however, depending on the image we may remove these images because of the potential for abuse or reuse by others.
Harassment happens in many different forms, from making threats to releasing personally identifiable information, to sending threatening messages, and making unwanted malicious contact. This kind of behavior is not acceptable on FAME. We distinguish between public figures and private individuals because we want to allow discussion, which often includes critical commentary of people in the news or who are public figures or have a large public audience. Context and intent matter, and we allow people to share and re-share posts if it is clear that something was shared in order to condemn or draw attention to bullying and harassment.
Suicide and Self-Injury
While we want FAME to be a place where people can discuss and raise awareness about issues of importance and seek support from others, we don’t allow people to intentionally or unintentionally celebrate or promote suicide or self-injury, or identify, negatively target or makes fun of victims or survivors of suicide or self-injury. We define self-injury as the intentional and direct injuring of the body, including self-mutilation and eating disorders. We remove any content that encourages suicide or self-injury (this includes memes or illustrations as well as any self-injury content which is graphic).
We remove content that facilitates, coordinates or promotes the exploitation of humans, including human trafficking. Human trafficking is the exploitation of humans in order to force them to engage in commercial sex, labor, or other activities against their will. We also do not allow content that facilitates, coordinates or promotes human smuggling as the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders.
Privacy and the protection of personal information is very important for FAME. We work hard to safeguard your personal identity and information and we encourage users not to post personal or confidential information about yourself or of others. We may remove content that shares, offers or solicits personally identifiable information or other private information that we believe could lead to physical or financial harm, including financial, residential, and medical information, as well as private information obtained from illegal sources. We recognize that the safety of our users extends to the security of their personal information and accounts and our services. We do not allow attempts to gather sensitive user information through the abuse of our platform and products.
Hate speech is violent or dehumanizing speech, harmful stereotypes, statements of inferiority, or calls for exclusion or segregation. Hate speech creates an unsafe environment of intimidation and exclusion and in some cases may promote real-world violence. Accordingly, we do not allow hate speech on FAME. Hate speech includes attacks on people based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, gender identity, serious disease or disability, age, immigration status or other discriminatory reasons. Sometimes people share content containing someone else’s hate speech for the purpose of raising awareness or educating others or in an empowering way. We allow this type of content but expect users to clearly indicate their intent. Where the intention is unclear, we may remove the content.
We remove content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others. We allow graphic content (with some limitations) when communicating news or current events, to help people raise awareness about issues or for educational purposes or medical reasons.
13. Nudity and Sexual Activity
We restrict the FAME of nudity or sexual activity. This includes uncovered images of female breasts, genitalia or anus, or content depicting sexual acts. We default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the FAME of nudity or sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes. We also restrict sexually explicit language because some audiences within our global community may be sensitive to this type of content and it may impede the ability for people to connect with their friends and the broader community. However, we understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons, including as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons. Where such intent is clear, we make allowances for the content. For example, while we restrict images of female breasts that include the nipple, we allow other images, including those depicting acts of protest, women actively engaged in breast-feeding, and photos of post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures.
We try to limit the spread of spam because we do not want to allow content that is designed to deceive, or that attempts to mislead users to increase viewership. This content creates a negative user experience, detracts from people's ability to engage authentically in online communities, and can threaten the security, stability, and usability of our services.
