Selling ad spots for L$ in SL-centric social media groups allowed?

Question

Hey guys, so I've been running this social media group of SL users from my country for several years now and we currently have a few hundred members. I know selling ad spots in SL fan forum is allowed (such as sluniverse, hence why I also sell ad spots on my SL fan forum) but what about social media groups? Just want to make sure it doesn't break any rule :) cheers.

Anything that happens outside of SL (or outside of a forum or wiki hosted by Linden Lab) is outside of the TOS.  Linden Lab doesn't control what you advertise in facebook, SLU, or wherever.

Well, you can only use L$ as a medium of exchange if you are actually logged in to SL.  Also, of course, the TOS (Sect. 4.7) says rather clearly ..

4.7 Linden Dollars may not be exchanged outside of the LindeX exchange.

Any purchase of Linden Dollars from anywhere other than the LindeX is not permitted and is considered a violation of these Terms of Service which may result in suspension or termination of your Account.

so you can't sell L$ for USD (or buy them for USD) outside of the LindeX.  However, if you are selling a service, you can charge a L$ price for it just as you can charge for, say, a set of UV templates that a user has to download.

So I basically can sell anything or any service for L$?
