The Rules of Social Networking Do Matter

The article will help you understand the very few but important rules of Twitter and Facebook so you don’t get your accounts banned.

When it comes to marketing your brand and yes porn stars that means yourself, you need social networking sites like twitter and Facebook.

The problem is, far to many porn stars (or others in the industry) don’t seem to get the rules and find themselves working hard to build up their accounts, getting tons of followers and fans only to lose their account.

So here are a few simple but very important rules to follow —

First let’s start with Facebook. Facebook doesn’t like porn or anything directly associated with it — so if you are going to use Facebook to promote yourself or your brand then you need to be extra careful about the rules.

Rule #1: Facebook requires that you use your real name if you want a standard Facebook account. If you want to use your porn star name you’ll need to create a “page”. Here is the Facebook page for porn star Audrey Hollander.

If you want a normal account (here is a link to my Facebook account), use your real name, not something like YourfirstName YourCompany name. ie: Kelli PornCompanyName. If you want a traditional Facebook account you can’t use your company name, or some made up name – you have to use your real name. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you want your Facebook page to be called your company name, create a PAGE.

Rule #2: Don’t ever post pictures of yourself naked. Sex is a big no no on Facebook and it can get you banned. If you want to post sexy pictures that’s fine but do make sure you aren’t exposing your breasts or private parts.

Now let’s look at Twitter.

Twitter doesn’t really care what you call yourself. But what they do care about is your avatar, header image and background.

You may not have nudity in your header image, your avatar or your background. You can have sexy pictures but no nudity.

Can you tweet pictures of yourself naked? So far Twitter has allowed us to post all the naughty pictures we want BUT there is a catch … you need to adjust your twitter settings (under settings) and mark your photos as potentially sensitive.

If you do not do this and you tweet out naughty pictures of yourself, your twitter account couple potentially be banned.
