Shameless Self Promotion?

I am really new to this site and this is the first time I have really used it since I was accepted. I develop apps for Android and I am looking into branching out into other facets of software development. Because of this, I am wondering, what are the rules on this site as far as promoting one's self via links to content and websites I have created? Are we allowed to post links to other sites and content that we have created, and if so, what exactly are the rules for this so I don't get myself in trouble before I can shed my newbie clothes and spread my wings on this site. I would love the assistance of vets of this site on this, and also any tips/advice/words of wisdom they want to pass along I will be happy to receive!

There are different ways to promote your articles here (to get views, likes and comments) and you can use them all if you like! Though I would suggest that you only do so once per platform. Enjoy!

I do not share my posts yet to other social sites because I am not sure and clear about the rules yet.

Referral and Affiliate links aren't allowed. You can post links to other sites, so long as it doesn't contain a referral link or affiliate link. I would also avoid posting a store for yourself as well, as this can seem very spam like, especially if done frequently. However, if you have an FB page, you can certainly link them there. It can be up to the reader to like the FB page or go to your "store" from there.

I'm not sure the rules I have not promoted any of my articles.
