What are your eligibility requirements?

  • Applicants must comply with all applicable terms and policies governing the use of our apps and services, and the communities they represent must be in good standing and engaged in activities and discussions that are anchored on positive impact, rather than demeaning other people, groups, or points of view.
  • Applicants must be at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in their local country, whichever is higher.
