Cyberspace– Sharesome, “the free adult social network,” has announced its official launch.
The internet is for porn, and but that doesn’t mean social media agrees. Post an NSFW pic on Facebook, and you will be locked out of your account for days. Instagram is well known for its prohibitive (and uneven) approach to nudity, and Twitter — while pretty sex-positive in its rules and policies – has started to shadowban users with NSFW content.
With all this in mind, meet Sharesome — a new social media site for posting NSFW photos, videos and links, just like you would share on Facebook or Twitter.
By joining or creating a specific topic, users can interact with each other based on their shared kinks – or, just sit back and enjoy the results of thousands of people constantly aggregating around a specific fetish. Inside topics, users can share links to gifs, images and videos. Sharesome also recently launched its “Content Creator Program,” which allows verified users to post and share their own content.
“The adult industry is changing right now. Livechat performers and porn actors no longer want to be dependent on production studios. They want to be entrepreneurs, to produce and sell content on their own terms,” said Sharesome CEO Tudor Bold.
“Technology encourages that. We see a huge trend of creators selling peer-to-peer content on websites like ManyVids or Clips4Sale. Even porn giant Pornhub launched its own ‘Model Payment Program’ for independent content creators,” Bold continued.
What seems to be a very positive outlook for these small entrepreneurs actually doesn’t look so good as these independent producers are cut off from traditional social media sites where they could build an audience.
Bold has a clear message for the tens of thousands of independent creators in the adult industry: “We built Sharesome so live chat performers and porn actors can grow a fanbase and send traffic to their own websites, camsites or paysites. We already host stars like Jasmine Rouge or newcomers like Candie Cross, and unlike other social networks, we will never block or shadowban their accounts.”
In a world where mainstream sites are increasingly hostile towards adult content, Sharesome emerges as a haven where people are free to discover and share their inner kinky selves.
