H/T for sharing and
The more Google plus grows, the more annoying spammers are active on it. Being the owner of HQSP I have many pages and several communities. More and more we see those horrible sex selling accounts spoiling the fun of sharing and promoting photography on Google plus. I don’t want to talk here about selling sex and exploiting woman. This is about how these people use the success of photography on Google plus and other social media platforms.
Goal of this post is: Find help trying to stop these people by blocking, reporting and banning and by convincing Google to find a way to stop this. Sharing this post might help ….
How do these sex sellers work?
1. They make lots of fake accounts, starting the name with lots of exclamation marks. These accounts join communities. When you open the members section of the community, you are confronted with loads of these accounts. (image below).
2. They post sex photos and video’s using hash tags of the big photography communities (like HQSP). Everybody doing a search using those hash tags are confronted with these unwanted photos and videos. The curators of these themes are getting really fed up with all the stuff that shows up in our search app.
3. They steal photos by photographers on Google plus or elsewhere on the internet, post them with the hash tags, trying to lure photography fans to the fake accounts.
What can we do about this?
a. Block, Report and Ban! This is the first thing the photography groups can do. Get rid of these accounts in your communities. Give these people as hard a time as possible! The HQSP communities are cleaned up on a daily basis. Every day there are new accounts.
b. Block, Report and Ban! Not only the photography groups but all users can do this. So when you notice these accounts, act!
c. Let’s try and convince Google of doing something about this. Filtering accounts that start with loads of symbols can’t be that difficult.
Important! Personally I don’t mind the adult industry being on Google plus. If people involved are adults and want to be in that themselves, so be it. But I don’t want them to use us photography promoters, and I don’t want them to spam people (like me) who don’t want to be involved with those things. NO SPAMMING!
