Should You Use Flauntt to Promote Your Content?

Updated on March 14, 2018

What is Flauntt? Is it safe to use this? What can be suspicious about this? What might make you think twice about using this? To put it simply, Flauntt is a tool that you can use to promote your content on Twitter.

With this, you can get other people to share your works (like videos, articles, blog posts, websites, etc) by tweeting and retweeting it. So, what’s so bad about that?

Is Flauntt too good to be true?

Flauntt may be free, but that doesn't mean you don't pay a price if you want to use it. In this case, it's "I share, you share". In other words, your content only gets shared if you share the content of others.

This reminds me of Scribophile, a writing critique group. Just like Flauntt, it's free, but you're also required to critique the stories of others if you want to receive constructive criticism for your own story.

Flauntt sounds way too good to be true, doesn’t it? Why, you ask? Well, for starters, it’s free. That’s right, you don’t have to pay anything in order to use this tool.

However, while you don’t have to shell out money, you do need to do something so that your content will be shared by others.

You have to share the content of others too. You get credits for tweeting or retweeting the stuff of others and you can use those credits to get your stuff shared.

Reason why Flauntt is interesting

Flauntt sounds really interesting, don’t you think? This can be a helpful and useful tool especially for those who may not have much of a following on Twitter yet or who may want to reach as many people as possible.

You’re even encouraged to share quality content and you can choose what to share, so you don’t have to be stuck tweeting or retweeting something you don’t want to. The site even has quality measures in place.

Are you planning to use Flauntt?

More information needed

But more information is needed before using the site. I took a look at it and the website itself looks pretty plain.

There’s a “how it works” page, which explains what you need to do in order to get your stuff shared. But that’s pretty much all that you can see.

Where are Flauntt's terms and policies?

I couldn’t see any links that led to the site’s Terms of Service or Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Flauntt doesn't even have a Terms of Service/Use or Privacy Policy. What's up with that?

Sites and platforms like Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc are also free, but they all have their own terms and policies. In fact, some of them are exceptionally long to the point of making you fall asleep from boredom.

There is no contact us page either. The only other link that they have is a “login by Twitter” button.

If you click on that, you get taken to a Twitter page, which says something about authorizing the Flauntt app to access your account, which is odd, isn’t it? What happens if you allow this app access to your Twitter account?

How to find information about Flauntt?

Try searching for info about Flauntt on Google and other search engines and you won't find much at all, which is strange since this is supposedly a very useful tool in promoting your works.

Since the site didn’t have much information about Flauntt, I also checked what I might be able to find via search engine (like Google), but my query didn’t bring much results.

Flauntt can be especially useful for those who don't have a huge following on Twitter, so more people can see their works

It’s like no one is talking about this (there were a few articles, but very, very few), which is really quite odd because isn’t this a good tool for people who want to promote their stuff?

You’d think that more people would talk about this useful tool, right? But I didn’t even know about the existence of Flauntt until I read about it in passing in an article on Daily Two Cents (a writing site that used to pay per view, but have since changed their payment model, unfortunately).

I did find the site’s Twitter account, but it looks like the last tweet was way back in 2013, which makes me wonder if this site is even still active.

What do you think about Flauntt as a tool for promoting your works/content on Twitter?

1 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of Flauntt

Conclusion

All of that sounds really quite suspicious, doesn’t it? Does anyone have any more information about Flauntt? What do you know about this site?

Do you think that it’s safe to use this tool? Has anyone tried using this before? What do you think about Flauntt?
