Tumblr porn ban: One-fifth of users have deserted site since it removed adult content



Good! Tumblr doesn't deserve traffic! The way they just randomly deleted peoples highly followed adult accounts a couple years ago showed blatant disrespect for people's hard work that often spanned over a year, and work multiple times a day, to create their first popular Tumblr

Tumblr porn ban: One-fifth of users have deserted site since it removed adult content

Tumblr’s ban on pornography and adult content has led to a fifth of its users deserting the platform, figures reveal.

The ban, which came into effect on 17 December, provoked a backlash from users who claimed it would penalise sex-positive, LGBT and NSFW art communities.

Visits to the Tumblr website fell from 521 million in December to 437 million in January, according to data from web analytics firm SimilarWeb.

Tumblr’s decision to update its content policy came after the discovery of child sexual abuse imagery on its blogs.

The ban goes far beyond illegal content, however, as it covers “photos, videos, or Gifs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content – including photos, videos, Gifs and illustrations – that depict sex acts.”

Certain exceptions mean that erotic text can still be posted to Tumblr blogs, as well as nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art.

In defending the ban, Tumblr said it still wanted to still be a platform for LGBTQ+ conversations.

“Tumblr will always be a place to explore your identity,” it wrote. “Tumblr has always been home to marginalized communities and always will be,” Tumblr wrote.

“We fully recognise Tumblr’s special obligation to these communities and are committed to ensuring that our new policy on adult content does not silence the vital conversations that take place here every day.”

The decision to ban adult content on Tumblr proved controversial among many users and prompted a movement known as the “log off” protest to encourage people to leave the site.

One online petition calling for the policy to be reversed receiving more than 600,000 signatures.

“Let people post porn, it’s 90 per cent of the reason anybody is on the site in the first place,” the petition states.

“If you really want a non-18+ Tumblr, start a new one with that specific goal in mind. Don’t rip down what people have spent years working on.”

That's what I was thinking as well. 20% isn't bad. Maybe Porn on Tumblr wasn't THAT big after all.

But like I said back then...it swings both ways. Never cheer on censorship for any side.

but you have to do the same with twitter, as they are displayed as "over 18" for nudity...


not sure i get what you mean and the difference?


as said, porn isn´t banned, it´s just behind a sign in wall, same as anywhere else

I'm more interested in naked people than I am in tedious political ranting, but I'm opposed to censorship and no-platforming.

Glad to see Tumblr getting some of what they deserve.

So you believe bots that auto post hate to hundreds and thousands of Twitter accounts should not be censored? You think that hundreds and thousands of individuals should have to block those bots individually?

I believe that I should be able to opt out of the snail mail junk mail that keeps filling up my mail box, so much so that the mailman starts returning my legitimate personal mail to sender, but the post office doesn't afford me such luxury as the junk mail providers are a substantial amount of income to the postal service .

Platforms have a TOS that apply to everyone equally. When you break the TOS you are off the platform. You are against this. Why?

I believe in freedom of speech as a genuine value, not a legal technicality.

No social media company is qualified to decide what counts as good think.

I'm not graced to even have the hate topics on GFY in a different forum, even though the vast majority of users would prefer it. But I think people should be able to converse however they please, just not scream their opinions in my face with no way for me to get away.

I wish I could block promoted trends on sites like Twitter, but I don't have to block thousands of accounts there. I simply do not follow accounts which post things I don't like.

I was a guest speaker at SXSW the year they blew up there, so I've been on that platform for over a decade, longer than most users. Yet, for example, I've never seen a single Alex Jones tweet. They did not have to censor Alex Jones for me to not see his tweets.
