Communication has never been more important than it is right now. Here’s what we want to communicate today and all days:
Black Lives Matter.
Please join us in solidarity with and remembrance of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and the countless more whose names aren’t being said. We’re donating 10% of all our proceeds from Friday, June 12th, through Sunday, June 14th to the NAACP and the ACLU.
For more resources and to make a donation, tap the links above. We encourage global members to research organizations in your area, too
Camfrog is a platform for people of all races, from every walk of life. We endeavor to be a safe place of expression for all, but finding the balance between opposing beliefs isn’t always easy. We recognize that as a company we have an opportunity to improve our practices, educate ourselves, and actively stand against racism.
We understand that without substantial, systemic change, a fundraising weekend is only a first step. That is why we are taking these additional actions:
Increasing hours for support teams to address any reports of threatening, harassing, abusive, or hateful speech or images
Reworking our Terms of Service to better define and protect against hate speech
Retraining our support teams within these updated terms, with additional focus on care and service
Matching all employee donations to the NAACP and the ACLU
Free speech is important to us. Hate speech is not.
If you have concerns about a member or room within our community and believe that their actions violate the Terms of Service, please submit a confidential complaint here.
Thank you for your efforts, engagement, and support.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve worked to bring the best social video experience we can to you. We’ve experimented and tried lots of different ways to improve. Some things stick around, some don’t. Today we’re announcing that one of our experiments is coming to an end. We’ve come to the difficult decision to shut down Live Broadcasting on Camfrog as of Sunday, April 12th.
We didn’t come by this decision easily, but decided it’s time to refocus our attention and efforts on our core product and service: Group Video Chat. We have many exciting plans that we can’t wait to share with you, and are working hard to continue improving Camfrog to make it the best video chat experience you can have. We’d like to thank everyone who’s ever broadcasted on Live for helping grow our community, and we want to thank everyone who’s ever watched a broadcaster for being an amazing audience. We look forward to continuing to provide a fun interactive way to meet and chat with new friends around the world.
We know life is pretty tense right now. COVID-19 is officially a pandemic, travel bans are expanding, and whole countries are on lockdown.
We’re lucky. As a digital communications platform, we don’t have services that require physical distribution or direct contact. On top of that, we’re a chat company and we serve a function that’s sorely needed right now. Communication is important to us. It’s our business, but it’s also something we believe in.
That’s why we’ve opened up free video for users in some of the most heavily impacted countries. Whether you’re in quarantine, working from home, or just trying to play it safe, we’ve got you covered.
We know how meaningful it is to see people face to face. When physical contact becomes ill-advised, video chat platforms like Camfrog support face to face interactions online. No need for handshakes, facemasks, or worrisome travel. Just put your pretty faces on cam.
If you live in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, or South Korea, you now have access to free video. You can use it to meet new people safely and ward off the isolation scaries, or to check in and keep in touch with family and friends worldwide. You can even use Camfrog rooms to watch Youtube videos with friends — share the link and get people chatting live.
In the coming weeks, we will monitor this list and expand anywhere that’s appropriate. For right now, please let us know if you’re having any trouble with the apps. We want to be sure that, as online numbers surge, we’re doing our best to serve you the best experience possible. Stay safe and stay in touch. We care.
Best, Team Camfrog

¹ Users of an app that integrates Props may be able to receive Props upon their review and acceptance of the terms and conditions for use of the app and the completion of certain other administrative steps. Non-US users of an app that integrates Props will be required to make their own determination as to whether such usage or any transfer of Props is in compliance with their relevant state and foreign securities laws.

Each Monday this month, we’ll pick 6 Camfroggers to give prizes! Each winner will get an exclusive Santa Hat Flair Icon next to their jolly RED nick, in addition to the weekly prizes below:
1000 Camfrog Coins
3 Months Camfrog GOLD
2500 Camfrog Coins
