Community Guidelines

We reserve the right to remove content for violating any of the below guidelines for any reason. Users that constantly violate our Community Guidelines will be suspended. We may report to law enforcement authorities any user content that we believe to be illegal or dangerous to others. If you find content that violates any of the below guidelines (or common sense), please use the report feature.

 

 

Sensitive Content

 

  • 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 Shhh. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. 

  • We understand that many people use Shhh to share important and newsworthy events. Some of these issues can involve graphic images. Since some people are more sensitive than others, we may remove videos of intense, graphic violence to make sure Shhh stays appropriate for everyone.

 

Abusive, Harmful and Offensive Content

  • 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.
     

  • 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 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.
     

  • Bullying is strictly prohibited. Bullying includes, but is not limited to, abuse, name-calling, hate speech, ridicule, impersonation, defamation, and sharing of another’s personal information. Users that post offensive and hateful content will have their accounts suspended.

     

Suspicious and Spammy Content

  • Help Shhh stay spam-free by not artificially collecting likes, posting repetitive comments or content. 

     

Personal Information

  • The posting of someone else's personal information to the general public is not allowed on Shhh. Personal information includes names, street addresses, emails, social media account names, and other relevant and identifying contact information.
