Each message you send will also be summarized in a “Delivery Report”. Nearly every interaction with your database can be reported upon.

Spamming is not a factor with the YOU platform. Your followers give permission to contact them by opting in to follow you. Once you have them, don’t loose them! Make sure that your messages are meaningful and provide value.
