Tumblr definitively bans adult content from December 17th in a move that fundamentally changes social media, here's how it will work
Tumblr prohibits adult content on its platform since December 17th in a move that will uproot the communities linked to porn on the platform and fundamentally alter the way the service is used.
Tumblr forbids all adult content: how it works
The prohibition includes explicit sexual content is nudity with few exceptions, as the Social affirms. The announcement of the new policy comes just a few days after Tumblr was removed from Apple's App Store for an episode of child pornography, but extends far beyond the specific issue. Adult content will no longer be allowed qui, the company said in a blog post.
The prohibited contents include photos, videos and GIFs of human genitals, nipples of women and all media concerning sexual acts, including illustrations. The exceptions include classical nude statues and political protests presenting nudity.
The new guidelines exclude the text, so eroticism is allowed. The illustrations and art that present nudity are still acceptable, as long as they are not depicted as sexual acts, such as breastfeeding and post-natal photos.
Like Tumblr, punishing violators against the ban on publishing adult content
After December 17, any pexplicit ost for adults will be marked and deleted by algorithms. At the moment, Tumblr is sending an email to users who have published content for adults marked with algorithms, warning them that their content will soon be hidden from users' view. THE posts with pornographic content will be set as private, which will prevent them from being added or shared elsewhere in the Tumblr community.
Users have the opportunity to challenge Tumblr's decision in situations where they think there was an error and the platform admits that there is a possibility that the automated tools it is using may make mistakes.
a process that could take a while, as most Tumblr posts have explicit content. Users who manage adult blogs can also export their content before the change takes place in order to save what they have.
THE porn blog they will be allowed to remain on the service, but they will be heavily censored for all visitors. All specifications can be found in the FAQs of the service.
Because Tumblr has decided to ban adult content
Since Tumblr was founded in 2007, it has largely turned a blind eye to adult content.
The company tried to protect them from public viewing through the Safe Mode and more rigorous search filters, but in recent months and during the ownership of Verizon's Oath unit it has begun to begin to evaluate the removal of content more aggressively. We have seriously thought about who we want our community to be, said CEO Jeff D’Onofrio in a blog post. We realized that in order to continue to fulfill our promise and our place in culture, especially in its evolution, we must change. D’Onofrio says Tumblr has thoroughly evaluated the pros and cons before making a decision. Moreover, he decided to do not remove explicit accounts because he wanted to offer these accounts the possibility of publishing appropriate content.
Under Oath, Tumblr ha rhis platform has been cleared faster than it had in previous years. In August, Tumblr announced new community guidelines to ban pornographic vendettas, hate speech, and posts that glorified school shootings.
For users who mourn the loss of adult content on Tumblr, D’Onofrio claims to have many other solutions: there is no shortage of sites on the internet that present adult content. We will leave it to them and focus our efforts on creating a more welcoming environment for our community, he said.
