Hey everyone. A quick update…
Recently, we’ve been getting more and more users promoting their own sites and podcasts on Bitmob. We never really established any policies about this sort of stuff, but we need to now before the problem gets worse and the Mobfeed is overrun with promotional posts rather than original content….
So we’d like to ask the community to refrain from running what are essentially advertisements on Bitmob, and this includes dedicated posts for podcasts (regardless of whether it’s a direct download or link to another site). We’ll be taking these down as we see them.
We are supportive of the community, though, so we’ll look into ways you guys can show off your podcasts somewhere on Bitmob without it getting in the way of the original stories on Mobfeed.
Note: This doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t ever link out. If you need to reference an article or podcast somewhere else, or you want want throw a link to your own site at the bottom of a story (as a sort of “here’s where you can find more of me” thing), that’s fine. As long as the point of your post is not promotional in nature.
