FriendLife is a place for people to make new friends, keep in touch, and share their world.
Everything that happens on FriendLife should make people feel included and valued. As a result, we have developed some community standards to help you understand what we value as a community.
Please take the time to read and understand these guidelines. We’re very serious about getting content that violates our guidelines reported and removed, because we know it’s important to the community, and it’s important to us.
Safety is our top priority. We actively search for and remove content and can contact law enforcement if we think there is a real risk of physical harm to individuals or a threat to public safety.
It is absolutely not allowed to threaten others or organize violence on or with FriendLife. We also do not allow celebrating acts of terrorism or violence, or threats of theft, vandalism, or other serious crimes.
At FriendLife, we consider all our users friends, and we take any threats of self-harm or suicide seriously. We take down any promotion or encouragement of self-harm, eating disorders, drug abuse, or suicide.
If you are worried that you may harm yourself, please call the National Suicide Prevention Line: 1 (800) 273-8255
They are available 24 hours a day.
