Websites that support self-promotion 
LinkedIn is a website in which the intended goal is for users to promote themselves as valuable employees. They do this by discussion technical topics used in industry (often topics such as computer programming, mechanical engineering, or graphical design). Clients of the LinkedIn website also post their resumes or CVs on the website itself.
YouTube is a notable and very popular website in which amateur and professional video authors create and upload videos in order to become more famed or more known.
Glassdoor is a website that allows employers to connect with jobs. Companies, including small and non-notable companies known as startup companies, are able to post job listings and wanted employee skills on the website.
Websites against self-promotion 
Wikipedia is a website that explicitly does not allow contributors and editors, known as Wikipedians, to promote themselves or their own work. In fact, even if a particular editor has done useful research, such as legitimate and scholarly Ph.D. level research, he or she is still discouraged from doing such things.
Wikipedia also highly discourages famous or notable users from editing biography articles about themselves. However, these policies do not always stop some editors, such as Jimmy Wales the founder of Wikipedia, from attempting to break these rules.
Neutral websites 
Imageboards and boorus 
Popular non-4chan based imageboards, such as Danbooru, Gelbooru, and Safebooru, have a mixed policy. Usually, popular artists who create images and anime drawings are allowed to promote themselves.
