CANOGA PARK, Calif.—Free Speech Coalition (FSC) has launched on several social network platforms, including a new blog, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Linked-In. In an effort to make greater outreach to adult industry members, media and the public, the FSC will offer a variety of content on the various platforms, including breaking industry and FSC news, pro-adult articles and stories on trending issues. FSC also is encouraging interaction from industry members.
“The adult industry is on the forefront of social networks,” said FSC Membership Director Joanne Cachapero. “Almost everyone is on Facebook, Twitter, blogging, doing video or podcasts… and we’ve found that by using these formats, we’ve been able to spread awareness about FSC and the industry. We also want to be more available when people have questions or concerns.
“It’s important to be a pro-adult voice for the industry, especially when it comes to clearing up misconceptions in the media and for the public,” she added. “We want to create better access to information, for the adult community, about important issues like anti-piracy efforts, .XXX domains, mandatory condom regulation, 2257 and free speech issues.”
This week, FSC launched a blog which can be accessed through a link on the FreeSpeechCoalition.com home page or at http://FSCblogger.wordpress.com. The blog will feature FSC news and industry topics.

The FSC Linked-In company page also has been recently updated, for professionals that would like to include FSC in their network of contacts.
Currently, FSC has two Facebook pages; a profile page, which available only to active FSC members (under “Free Speech”), as well as a fan page that is open-to-the public (under “Free Speech Coalition”).
And on YouTube, videos can be found by searching FSCAPAP. Two anti-piracy public service announcements produced by FSC have attracted more than 665,000 views and have been featured in publications, including Wired.com, The New York Times, HuffingtonPost.com and The Economist, as well as dozens of international online publications.
“For people that are unaware of FSC or are asking what we do for the industry, there are now many different ways to access FSC information and start a conversation with us,” Cachapero said. “As the industry trade association, we want to hear from people—if they want to participate or have questions. It’s about building community and awareness.”
