Hi IMDb readers, I have previously added Emmy Raver-Lampman's date of birth with a social media post from Instagram and it was rejected. I never got my date of birth rejected in the first place. The IMDb guideline rule for social media links says "We do allow social media links to be an acceptable source for birthdates (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.)" Is Instagram counts as a social media link to be qualified and add it's date of birth?

Here is the source from Emmy Raver-Lampman's Instagram page from September 5, 2018:

Here is the update number for the addition of the IMDb contribution for Emmy Raver-Lampman's date of birth with the Instagram post is: 


Here are some news and web links with the date of birth and place of birth included:

Here is the Google search with the date of birth and birthplace:

If the Instagram post is true and it counts as a social media link it will qualified as a date of birth and birthplace addition it should be written as:

5 September 1988, Norfolk, Virginia, USA

I cannot find a YouTube video with date of birth and birthplace. So I am positive that social media is accepted with Facebook and Twitter for its guideline rule. But I hope Instagram will be accepted as a social media link guideline rule. I hope the date of birth and birthplace is going to be added approved or rejected no matter what happens. If anyone can read the date Emmy Raver-Lampman's date of birth and birthplace with the web links I sent you with a possible addition. That would be great. Please update Emmy's date of birth and birthplace and let me know as soon as possible. Thanks and have a great day.

Hi ian-a -

I can see that your birthdate submission is currently pending review and should be processed shortly.

Concerning your question about social media links, depending on the content on the link we may or may not be able to verify the information, but we will accept those links for review (I would encourage including social media links as supplemental to other verifying links).  Unfortunately, the instagram link you referenced doesn't provide enough verifying information for our editors to approve the birthdate, the same is true for the other links you mentioned.

Ideally, we are looking for links to public records (such as Ancestry), printed publications (obituary, reputable news article), or official documents (copy of birth certificate or license, copy of passport, etc) for birthdate verification.
