Tumblr is Too Good for Porn: Enforcing Stricter Guidelines

1

Starting Dec.17, Tumblr will be conducting a site-wide cleanup. The networking site announced on Monday that they’d be banning all adult content soon. There new community guidelines, states that will  include “images, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples —this includes content that is so photorealistic that it could be mistaken for featuring real-life humans,” as the site describes.

The push for a cleaner environment will begin at a slow pace. Tumblr plans to rollout the changes gradually, allowing for their community of users to get accustomed to the changes. Tumblr says, “Community members with content that is no longer permitted on Tumblr will get a heads up from us in advance and steps they can take to appeal or preserve their content outside the community if they so choose.”

After being removed from Apple’s iOS App Store, it’s become more clear that the company wants to be more user friendly. With the new changes, they hope to create a safe place for all “age groups, demographics, cultures, and mindsets.”

Until Dec.17, the company has set up an algorithm to flag material, dubbed as porn.
