Lyf Content Guidelines

General Guidelines

    Lyf allows users to contribute different kinds of content, including reviews, photos, videos, and more. The following guidelines are to guide you on content you might contribute to the site.
  • Colorful language and imagery is fine, but no threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, and other displays of bigotry.
  • Your contributions should be unbiased and objective. You shouldn’t write reviews of your own business or employer, your friends’ or relatives’ business, your peers or competitors in your industry, or businesses in your networking group. Business owners should not ask customers to write reviews.
  • Unless you're using your Business Owners Account to add content to your business's profile page, we generally frown upon promotional content. Let's keep the site useful for consumers and not overrun with commercial noise from every user.
  • Please make sure your contributions are relevant and appropriate to the forum. For example, reviews aren't the place for rants about a business's employment practices, political ideologies, extraordinary circumstances, or other matters that don't address the core of the consumer experience.
  • Don’t publicize other people’s private information. Please don’t post close-up photos or videos of other patrons without their permission, and please don’t post other people’s full names unless you’re referring to service providers who are commonly identified by or commonly share their own full names.
  • Don’t swipe content from other sites or users. You’re smart, so write your own reviews and take your own photos and videos!
    The best reviews offer rich detail, and a helpful tip or two for other consumers. Here are some additional thoughts for conscientious reviewers.
  • We want to hear about your firsthand consumer experience, not what you heard from your co-worker or significant other. Try to tell your own story without resorting to broad generalizations and conclusory allegations.
  • Make sure your review is factually correct. Feel free to air your opinions, but don't exaggerate or misrepresent your experience. We don't take sides when it comes to factual disputes, so we expect you to stand behind your review
