Ads must not contain adult content. This includes nudity, depictions of people in explicit or suggestive positions, or activities that are overly suggestive or sexually provocative.
Ads that assert or imply the ability to meet someone, connect with them, or view content created by them must not be positioned in a sexual way or with an intent to sexualise the person featured in the ad.
This policy provides additional protections for people who use our technologies beyond what is prohibited in the Community Standards’ Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity policy.
Advertisers can’t run ads that contain adult content. As a global company we take into account the wide array of people from different cultures and countries who see ads on our platform, and their varying cultural sensitivities around adult content. We understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons and make certain exceptions in ads related to art and health.
