FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH IS SHOWX?
SHOWX is free for all verified musicians.
WHAT ARE CARDS?
Cards are the building blocks of SHOWX, and operate like virtual business cards. They can be customized and shared to any user's followers, or directly in messaging. Cards can be directly commented on, and other users can be tagged. There are 4 types of Cards: Performance, Media, Mashup, and Session.
DOES SHOWX VERIFY THAT I AM A MUSICIAN?
Yes. We are a network for serious musicians and to protect the integrity of our community we ensure that everyone on the platform is a musician.
HOW DOES SHOWX VERIFY ME?
We are not gatekeepers, we welcome musicians at all levels. We check your social media for signs that you are taking your music career seriously.
WHAT ARE ANCHORS?
Anchors are our anonymous system for users to show they trust one another. Users will never see who anchored them, or who removed an anchor. No users will ever be able to see who has anchored another user.
WHY DOES SHOWX HAVE ANCHORS?
To maintain a high level of integrity as a networking platform for new connections, having a metric that represents anonymous trust from other users is valuable to our community.
HOW DO I GET 'ANCHORED'?
When you gain the trust of other users they can choose to anonymously anchor you by selecting the anchor icon on your profile.
CAN ANCHORS BE TAKEN AWAY?
Yes they can, the same way they were given, by de-selecting the anchor icon on your profile.
HOW DO OTHER USERS FIND ME ON SHOWX?
Your profile will be automatically shared to other users' Discovery, so users outside of your network can discover you.
CAN USERS SHARE MY CARDS?
Yes, and you can share your own cards (as well as other users’ cards) to the connections you make on SHOWX, which will appear in your followers’ feeds.
CAN I MESSAGE ANYONE I WANT?
You can message anyone directly who is following you. You can also send messages to any users who are not following you, and that will appear as a message request. Message requests have to be approved by the recipient before a conversation can begin.
CAN I SEND GROUP MESSAGES?
Yes! Group messaging is a great way to network and introduce other users who aren’t yet connected.
CAN I SEND LINKS IN MESSAGING?
