This past week we released the Brief Talk Podcast called “Community Building Part 2.” In this podcast, we talk about how to build your community on social media focused on underwear/gear. One area we touched on was having your picture shared by others on social media sites (i.e., Instagram, IG Stories, Twitter, and more). 

Rule 1: When you DM someone, let them take time to respond to you. Don’t get upset if they don’t get back to you instantly. Just because Instagram says you are available doesn’t mean you are available. People have lives and are busy so give them a few days to get back to you. If you block them after 20 mins, you won’t get your pic shared. 

Rule 2: Let the person pick what they share. If you are a twink sending into a bear group, don’t expect to get shared. The same goes for a bear sending into a twink group. Also, let people choose from several pictures. We have incidents where some of our very guys have gotten a.TOS violation for others’ pics. Don’t get upset if they put a sticker or something over certain anatomy parts. It will make them guess what’s under and go to your profile. 

Rule 3: If the person doesn’t specifically ask for pics to share, don’t send them pics for a shout-out. Many people will do a day or several days and post in their stories, “Hey, send me your Towel Tuesday, Jockstrap Wednesday, Thong Thursday, etc., pics.” However, if the person isn’t known for asking or sharing many pics, don’t send a DM asking to get your pics to share. 

BONUS Rule – Don’t send video chat call requests. You are automatically denied and blocked. No one likes video chats from people they don’t know. Hell, on the podcast, we don’t want them from people we do know. 

Be kind and gracious when people share your pics. Also, if they share your pic, make sure you reciprocate and share their profile with your followers. These are the ones we came up with on the show. Do you have any to add? Post in the comments or share with us on Twitter
