  • According to the cafemom guidelines:

    Advertising and promotions are allowed ONLY on your profile page, in Journal posts (flagged for the Marketplace), or in groups that allow advertising. You may not PM or Chatterbox your advertisements to other members unless they specifically request information about it.


    Advertising includes:

    • Work-at-home businesses

    • Products that you are selling (personal or professional)

    • Job opportunities

    • Charities and charitable causes

    • Promoting another website (personal, non-business websites are not advertising)

    • Promoting your entry in a contest (e.g,. "vote for my baby in the cutest baby contest on!")

  • CafeMom group promotions are not considered advertisements. However, each CafeMom group can only be promoted in a Journal Post once a day. Each person can promote a maximum of three different groups a day. And each group can be promoted to a member in a PM only once. Group promotions do not need to be flagged for the Marketplace.

    Pyramid schemes and cash gifting scams are illegal and posting information about these schemes anywhere on CafeMom is prohibited.

    In addition, posts soliciting or advertising the availability of children for adoption are not permitted on CafeMom.

    There are many things that members are prohibited from listing for sale on CafeMom. Since we're not really a buying/selling site, we rely on Craigslist's list of prohibited or restricted items. In general it's alway

  • Oops, sorry the last bit got cut off.

    In general it's always safest for you to complete transactions involving money or exchanges on websites that are set up for that - like Craigslist, Ebay, Paypal, etc.

  • Cafemom tends to frown on that.

  • You can advertise in groups that allow it, your journal (one post per day) and on your profile page.
