Opposites have always coexisted in the globe. There is a reason to be unhappy everywhere there is cause to be joyful. Anything that produces a great deal of enjoyment can also produce a great deal of sorrow. Every benefit comes with an equally potent burden. Although it is not always clear in our daily lives, occasionally the balance of opposites is fairly obvious. A good example is social media.
Social media has given us access to countless options and possibilities for meeting people from all over the world, which is a clear indication of how far we have come in the field of social connections. But do social media platforms have flaws?
We can meet a lot of incredible people thanks to social media sites. However, we also frequently have unwelcome interactions with people who don’t contribute anything positive to our lives, who are unpleasant to be around, and who disrupt our online experience.
Kik features a fair percentage of members you would never want to engage with, just like any other social media networks. And while having those in your chat or anywhere else is never acceptable, an annoying individual on a live stream may be even more upsetting for both you and the viewers in real time.
You can choose to report an unsociable person in such circumstances when they are participating in a Kik Livestream. We’ll explain how to achieve so and go over some other instances involving Kik that are comparable. So, if you want to learn more about dealing with obnoxious users on Kik, keep reading.
Why should you report someone on Kik?
Kik is comparable to a lot of other instant messaging programs. But in addition to giving users access to the standard messaging features, the platform also gives them the option to go live at any time and engage in real-time communication with other users.
Like other sites that offer live streams, Kik is well aware of the benefits and drawbacks of live streams. Kik has certain clear and severe rules for anyone who wants to go live in order to ensure that live streaming stay nice and clean and do not turn into a tool to propagate offensive information on the site.
Anyone who runs a live stream on Kik is prohibited from engaging in any behavior that goes against the platform’s community standards. In particular, you cannot:
Go live if you’re underage. Kik is only available to users who are 13 years old and older. You shouldn’t use Kik at all if you are under 13 years old, let alone go live.
2. Share adult stuff on your live stream: Even if you are an adult, Kik is not the place for you if you wish to share anything that depicts nudity or any other adult material.
3. Spread hatred: Even though you might want to criticize or express unhappiness with someone, you must refrain from insulting, bullying, or spreading hate on your live stream.
4. Encourage unlawful activity: We don’t have to tell you this, do we? Anyone who wants to do this better be careful because it goes against Kik’s ideals to do anything illegal.
5. Spam: While Kik is a useful tool for chatting with loved ones online, you shouldn’t use it to continuously advertise your goods or services in every message or live broadcast. While you are permitted to do so on rare occasions, spamming is against Kik’s community rules.
Remember that not just users who are live streaming are subject to the aforementioned rules. If you see a streamer on Kik engaging in any of the aforementioned behaviors, you should report and block them as soon as possible. A stream viewer is also constrained by the same rules.
