I honestly need to know

Hi so I’m not actually sure what category to put this in but this seemed like a safe bet. Is it against the guidelines to use real brand/company names in your story? Like tiktok for example.

Honestly they say something about that, I think you shouldn’t publicize companies and apps for example.
But imagine you want to talk about tiktok say epitok or something like that , changing the word but keeping it perceptible is the safest option! :sweat_smile:

You can use them, but only in passing. For example you can say them a few times, but you can’t repeatedly use them and they can’t be a focal point in the story. E.g. Your story can’t be about the MC trying to become Tiktok famous.

Thanks. And no it would only be in passing.

Yeah, it is. I’d just change the name slightly (but still make it recognizable if you want).
