A sponsored community is a LiveJournal community
that is created and maintained by another company. They can use these communities to post information about various products or services relevant to their business. For example, a movie studio can use a sponsored community to promote the release of a new movie or DVD.
Like LiveJournal communities, users who are interested in a particular sponsored community are welcome to join the community and post comments or entries, depending on the community's individual settings.
All sponsored communities are noted as such, both within the community and in the community spotlight
on the home page. They are also specially designated within interest searches
. Sponsored communities may also have third party tracking enabled to measure the reach of their campaign. Your email address, any personally identifying information, and protected entries are never shared with advertisers or partners.
