Keeping EyeEm a happy & fun place for photography and creativity
Over the last few months some of you have asked what kind of content and behavior makes for the best experienceonEyeEm. We listened, sat down and expanded our existing community guidelines so all of us can continue havinga great time together.
You can read a full version of the guidelines here, but here’s a quickoverview of the 3 points that createthe foundation fora great community:
Use EyeEm to take original photos and share them with your friends and the community. It’s beautiful to see the moments captured each and every day when you share your ownworld. Only upload photos that you have taken yourself.
EyeEm is a community of photographers who are truly supportive and respectful. Don’t mass-follow, spam or leave offensive messages. Instead, leave fun comments on images you like, give feedback and connect with photographers from all over the world.
When sharing photos on EyeEm, consider that someimages you upload may not besuitable for everyone. If you share sensitive photos, please always mark them as “Sensitive” (via the “Edit” button on the Photo View). Only people who have activated “Sensitive” (Settings > Content Type) will be able to view photos marked as such.
Thisnew setting is now activeon both iOS and Android. It allows you todefine which of your photos is suitable for what audience. By marking your photo as “Sensitive”, you make sure that only people who choose to see this type of content will see it, and reduce the likelihood that your images get reported and/or removed. Explicit content is never allowed on EyeEm and will always be removed.
If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’re always here to help!
