What to Do

Share content that you’ve collected.

We call a piece of content — initially pictures, but may soon also include other file types — posted to Scrapboom a Scrap. Scrapboom is a great way to share your life through Scraps. It’s also perfect for sharing Scraps you have of your friends and family. Since users own the rights to all Scraps they have uploaded using our service, we ask that you respect their copyright ownership. If you want to express your excitement over a Scrap, you may click the Star icon and if you want to add the Scrap to your scrapbook just click the Hand icon to Grab it.

Share Scraps that are safe for people of all ages.

Remember that our community is a diverse one, and that your Scraps are visible to people as young as 13 years old. While we respect the artistic integrity of Scraps, we have to keep our product and the content within compatible with our App Store’s rating for nudity and mature content. In other words, please do not post nudity or mature content of any kind.

Treat others as you would like to be treated.

People from around the world with different backgrounds come together to share moments on Scrapboom, but it also means that not everyone will agree with what you think or believe. We ask that all users be polite and respectful in their interactions with other members.

Have meaningful and genuine interactions.

Self-promotion or commercial solicitation of any kind, in any form, is rarely well-received. Please be kind and honest with your exchanges on Scrapboom.

Have fun!

Scrapboom is the best way to quickly share and collect meaningful Scraps of your life with others, and see the world and your life through others’ eyes.

What Not to Do

It is important to note that overstepping the boundaries outlined below may result in a disabled account, or discontinued access to Scrapboom, without warning.

Don’t share Scraps that aren’t yours.

But, you’re probably safe if they’re from friends and family members!

Don’t share Scraps that show nudity or mature content.

If you wouldn’t show the Scrap you are thinking about uploading to a child, your friends or family, you probably shouldn’t share it on Scrapboom. The same rule applies to your profile photo. Accounts found sharing nudity or mature content will be disabled and your access to Scrapboom may be discontinued.

Don’t share Scraps of illegal content.

If we find you sharing prohibited or illegal content, including Scraps depicting extreme violence or gore, your account may be disabled and we will take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities.

Don’t spam.

Scrapboom is a place where people can share beautiful moments from their lives, and when you engage in self-promotional behavior of any kind on Scrapboom it may upset users who have shared that moment with you. This guideline includes repetitive comments, as well as service manipulation in order to self-promote, and extends to commercial spam comments, such as discount codes or URLs to websites. We ask that you keep your interactions on Scrapboom meaningful and genuine.

Don't be unkind.

Scrapboom is a friendly place where everyone should feel safe and comfortable sharing their lives through Scraps. It is not an appropriate place to abuse, attack, harass, or impersonate others. If we receive valid complaints about your conduct, we’ll send a warning or disable your account.

Additional things to remember

Scrapboom is a diverse community, and it is possible that you may come across things that offend you. If you are offended by a Scrap that may not violate any of the above guidelines, we’d suggest you navigate away from the account. If you’re unsure about the content, you can report it to Please include a description of the Scrap and the name of the Scrapboom member.


If you believe you will have trouble following these guidelines we’d suggest finding an alternative content sharing service, as Scrapboom may not be the best place for you. We value these guidelines, and believe that they will help keep Scrapboom a safe and fun place for everyone.
