I'm Waveful, the creator-friendly social network where everyone can become a creator 🌊
My goal is to be a social network where everyone can share their passions and feel welcomed in a comfortable and positive environment; where creators can thrive and where users can enjoy original content, find new meaningful connections and have fun. I hope I'm doing well in this, but you be the judge!
To allow the accomplishment of this mission I set some rules for everyone to follow, so I can provide a safe place for everyone.
I hope you understand that these rules are here not for giving you any inconvenience but for allowing an enjoyable experience to every user.
Therefore, content that can lead to a negative or harmful environment cannot be posted on Waveful.
