We've developed a set of Community Standards, which outline what is and isn't allowed on ZedLikes. Our Community Standards apply to content worldwide and are integral to protecting both expression and personal safety on ZedLikes. A wide range of objectionable or harmful content is prohibited under the Community Standards including content that promotes violent and criminal behavior, content that threatens the safety of others, hate speech, graphic content, spam and content that is harmful to minors. It’s removed from ZedLikes globally and the review process concludes. Second, if the reported content doesn't violate our Community Standards, we review it for legality based on the report.

Section 1 of ZedLike Community Standards

Adult nudity and sexual activity

We restrict the display of nudity or sexual activity because some people in our community may be sensitive to this type of content. Additionally, we default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the display of sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous or satirical purposes

 

Section 2 of ZedLike Community Standards

Sexual exploitation of adults

We recognize the importance of ZedLike as a place to discuss and draw attention to sexual violence and exploitation. We believe that this is an important part of building common understanding and community. In an effort to create space for this conversation while promoting a safe environment, we remove content that depicts, threatens or promotes sexual violence, sexual assault or sexual exploitation, while also allowing space for victims to share their experiences. 

 

Section 3 of ZedLike Community Standards

False news

Reducing the spread of false news on ZedLikes is a responsibility that we take seriously. We also recognise that this is a challenging and sensitive issue. We want to help people stay informed without stifling productive public discourse. There is also a fine line between false news and satire or opinion. For these reasons, we remove false news from ZedLike, and significantly reduce its distribution by showing it lower in the News Feed.

 

Section 4 of ZedLikes Community Standards

Fraud and deception

In an effort to prevent and disrupt harmful or fraudulent activity, we remove content aimed at deliberately deceiving people to gain an unfair advantage or deprive another of money, property or legal right. However, we allow people to raise awareness and educate others as well as condemn these activities using our platform

 

Section 5 of ZedLike Community Standards

Child nudity and sexual exploitation of children

We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children. When we become aware of apparent child exploitation, we report it to the child watch foundation portal online, in compliance with applicable law of Zambia. We know that sometimes, people share nude images of their own children with good intentions; however, we generally remove these images because of the potential for abuse by others and to help avoid the possibility of other people re-using or misappropriating the images.

 

Section 6  of ZedLike Community Standards

Promoting or publicising crime

We prohibit people from promoting or publicising violent crime, theft and/or fraud because we do not want to condone this activity and because there is a risk of copycat behaviour. We also do not allow people to depict criminal activity or admit to crimes that they or their associates have committed. We do, however, allow people to debate or advocate for the legality of criminal activities, as well as address them in a rhetorical or satirical way.

 

Section 7  of ZedLike Community Standards

Bullying and harassment

Bullying and harassment happen in many places and come in many different forms, from making threats to releasing personally identifiable information, to sending threatening messages and making unwanted malicious contact. We do not tolerate this kind of behaviour because it prevents people from feeling safe and respected on ZedLikes.

Section 8  of ZedLike Community Standards

Violence and graphic content

We remove content that glorifies violence or celebrates the suffering or humiliation of others because it may create an environment that discourages participation. We allow graphic content (with some limitations) to help people raise awareness about issues

 

 

Section 9  of ZedLike Community Standards

 Privacy violations and image privacy rights

Privacy and the protection of personal information are fundamentally important values for ZedLike. We work hard to keep your account secure and safeguard your personal information in order to protect you from potential physical or financial harm. You should not post personal or confidential information about others without first getting their consent. We also provide people with ways to report imagery that they believe to be in violation of their privacy rights.

 

Section 10  of ZedLike Community Standards

Spam

We work hard to limit the spread of commercial spam to prevent false advertising, fraud and security breaches, all of which detract from people's ability to share and connect. We do not allow people to use misleading or inaccurate information to collect likes, followers or shares.

 

Section 11 of ZedLike Community Standards

Dangerous individuals and organizations

In an effort to prevent and disrupt real-world harm, we do not allow any organisations or individuals that proclaim a violent mission or are engaged in violence to have a presence on ZedLike. This includes organisations or individuals involved in the following:

  • Terrorist activity
  • Organized hate
  • Mass murder (including attempts) or multiple murder
  • Human trafficking
  • Organized violence or criminal activity
  • Coordinating harm

In an effort to prevent and disrupt real-world harm, we prohibit people from facilitating or coordinating future criminal activity that is intended or likely to cause harm to people, businesses or animals. People can draw attention to harmful activity that they may witness or experience as long as they do not advocate for or coordinate harm.

 

Section 10  of ZedLike Community Standards

 

Regulated goods

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 ZedLike

.

 

Section 11  of ZedLikes Community Standards

Cruel and insensitive

We believe that people share and connect more freely when they do not feel targeted based on their vulnerabilities. As such, we have higher expectations for content that we call cruel and insensitive, which we define as content that targets victims of serious physical or emotional harm.

We remove explicit attempts to mock victims and mark as cruel implicit attempts, many of which take the form of memes and GIFs. We also remove any form of sadism towards people or animals.

 

Section 12  of ZedLikes Community Standards

 

Misrepresentation

Authenticity is the cornerstone of our community. We believe that people are more accountable for their statements and actions when they use their authentic identities. That's why we require people to connect on ZedLikes using the name that they go by in everyday life. Our Authenticity Policies are intended to create a safe environment where people can trust and hold one another accountable.

 

Section 13  of ZedLikes Community Standards

 

Memorialisation

When someone passes away, friends and family can request that we memorialise the account by adding "Remembering" above the name on the person's profile. This makes it clear that the account is now a memorial site and protects against attempted logins and fraudulent activity. 

 

Section 14  of ZedLikes Community Standards

 

 Inauthentic behaviour

In line with our commitment to authenticity, we don't allow people to misrepresent themselves on ZedLikes, use fake accounts, artificially boost the popularity of content or engage in behaviours designed to enable other violations under our Community Standards. This policy is intended to create a space where people can trust the people and communities they interact with.

 

Section 15  of ZedLikes Community Standards

 

Additional protection of minors
