Tumblr bans porn

tumblr logo

 

Starting Dec 17, adult content will not be allowed on Tumblr.

Adult content primarily includes photos, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts.

We all know Tumblr was a gigantic porn stash. Community driven or not the service served as an illicit repository for consumers and producers alike.

Tumblr has take a series of actions over recent years to tackle the issue but all has come to a head when Apple banned tumblr from the app store over a child pornography incident.

Now with a large portion of its user-base alienated, the micro-blogging darling of the early Web 2.0 days will either sink or swim under its new overlords Verizon.
