What is the difference between OnlyFans and Facebook?

The main difference between only fans and Facebook is, On Facebook, you post to the Newsfeed, but what if you want to post directly to only your subscribers? OnlyFans is a social network for Page Owners that does exactly that! You can dive into a lot more detail about this in our Help Center.

You want to make your personal connection with a person, so you can’t be easily seen on Facebook! Onlyfans was created just for people who need something more than classic social networks. Here fans can be engaged on a much deeper level, often offering them some kind of participation. But if you feel uncomfortable with this format, you have an opportunity to stay in the grey zone and not be noticed by any fan unlike posting your creations on classic social networks.

So… it’s kind of like Patreon?

Well, yes and no. Patreon is a great place for creators to monetize their work, but it doesn’t give them the same control over what they post on their pages that OnlyFans does. On Patreon, there are certain terms and conditions that creators must follow, particularly around adult content. On OnlyFans, as long as you only share NSFW content with people who have paid for access to it (i.e., your subscribers), you can post whatever you want! It’s really up to you!

Let’s take a look at how it works

Getting started on OnlyFans is easy! All you need is an email address and a credit card or PayPal account so you can set up your subscription pricing. Once everything is set up, all you have to do is start posting content!

Once you create an account (it only takes a second), you’ll be able to search for creators whose work you like and subscribe to them right away. Then, when they post any new content—like personal photos or videos—you’ll get access! Plus, they can even send direct messages and hold live video chats with their subscribers.

Is OnlyFans safe?

The answer is yes! The site has a very strict policy when it comes to people who want to scam others out of money by pretending they’re selling something on OnlyFans.

But not safe, If you are not interested in seeing NSFW content, then it is recommended that you do not use OnlyFans. If you have already signed up for OnlyFans but no longer want to see NSFW content, you can set up your account so that you do not see any NSFW content.

It’s not just about money though, there are many scams out there that involve fake profiles, which can be used for everything from hacking into computers to stealing personal information.

If you ever see a profile on OnlyFans that looks suspicious or seems too good to be true, don’t click on it! You should always report any accounts that look like they might be scams or phishing attempts.
