Bulletin community guidelines

Bulletin is all about creating content that benefits communities. To make sure all our users have a great experience, we have a few content policies.

Sexually explicit content

We don't allow images or videos that feature nudity or sex acts.

Graphic violent content

We don’t allow images that show gratuitous violence or glorify violence.

Hateful content

We don’t allow content that promotes hatred or violence against an individual or group based on ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Harassment & cyberbullying

We don’t allow content that harasses, bullies, or is physically or sexually exploitative. We don't allow gratuitous incivility, where the primary purpose of the content is a personal ad hominem attack against a private person or organization.

Personal & confidential information

We don't allow the sharing of a private person's confidential and personally identifiable information (for example, medical records or financial information).

Deceptive behavior

We remove accounts that impersonate any person or organization, or that misrepresent their primary purpose. We don’t allow content that has been manipulated to mislead users.

Spam & malware

We don’t allow excessive repetitive content, misspellings, or gimmicky character use. We also don’t allow links to malware, viruses, or other harmful software.

Dangerous & illegal activities

We don’t allow content that promotes or facilitates dangerous activities or illegal activities, including self-harm, such as self mutilation, eating disorders, or drug abuse. We also don’t allow content used to threaten or organize violence or support violent organizations.

Promotional content

We don’t allow content that’s primarily meant to serve as an ad, such as endorsements of specific products or calls to purchase featuring prices. Information about public appearances are fine.

Medical advice

We don’t allow content that provides medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment via this service.


We don’t allow content that infringes on anyone's intellectual work or property.

Copyrighted content

Be aware of rules for photos and video when at events. We will respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. Repeated infringement of intellectual property rights, including copyright, will result in account termination. Learn more about Google's copyright policies.

Child safety

We have a zero tolerance policy towards content that exploits children. We will remove and report such content as required by law, and may take other appropriate action, such as disabling accounts and terminating access to all contents within an account.

Terrorist content

Bulletin strictly prohibits content related to terrorism. We also do not permit terrorist organizations to use Bulletin. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Using Bulletin to incite violence
  • Using Bulletin to celebrate terrorist attacks
  • Using Bulletin to promote acts of terrorism

If posting graphic content in an educational (such as news), documentary, scientific, or artistic context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on.
