After School’s Community Guidelines and Why They’re Important

August 17, 2017

In April 2015, several months after the “controversial” launch of After School, we released the full version of the app, which included new safety features, policies, and community guidelines. We believe that presenting and enforcing guidelines is an important aspect of digital citizenship –”the safe, savvy and ethical use of technology.”

After School’s Community Guidelines explain what’s expected and required of users. Getting users to read policies is tough for any company.

We present our guidelines early in the registration process, and also steer users toward positivity through pop-ups and graphics throughout the app, social change opportunities, and positive campaigns with our partners.

After School’s Community Guidelines:

Our Community Guidelines exist to maintain a fun environment that’s safe for all users.






These guidelines must be followed by all users, and complement our Zero Tolerance Policy against cyberbullying and threats. Users who violate and do not follow these guidelines will be blocked. Keep it positive!
