Our 2014 Social Media Policy: After much thought, discussion and debate we have resolved that we will not pay for social media exposure as we feel it is antithetical to many of the values we try to advance here at ReclaimingPink. We therefore rely on you, our readers, to like/share/engage with our content in order that we can organically generate the social media exposure we hope you think we deserve. Please take a moment and engage with our posts by liking, sharing, tweeting or commenting.
