That all changed in Novemberwhen Apple removed Tumblr from its App Store after finding that child pornography had slipped onto the site. The ban prohibited not just hardcore porn, but even the humble female nipple. Imagery that just barely hides private parts seems to still be allowed.
We understand that mobile phones are part of daily life, and to help young people enjoy these services safely we provide internet filters to limit access to material that may not be suitable. This filter is automatically applied for prepay customers. Customers who are over 18 can request for this age restriction to be removed.
From 17 December, Tumblr will ban adult-themed photographyillustrations and videos of sexual acts, representations of full-frontal genitalia and female-presenting nipples. Want some previously curated lists? Timbr was built by Krill Nikolaev after Tumblr made the announcement it would remove adult content.
Since Tumblr announced this week that it will no longer be part of that internet, many users are mounting an exodus to existing networks like still-freewheeling Twitter, as well as efforts to build a new kind of Tumblr—or rather, the kind of Tumblr that Tumblr had been until now. Though less active on Tumblr now, she tells me she used her blog there as an informal way to communicate with clients. So, all that Tumblr nonsense may finally force me to use my Twitter account. Never used it before, so it may take me some time to figure things out, but hey… hi????.
Blogger is a free service for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. We believe Blogger increases the availability of information, encourages healthy debate, and makes possible new connections between people. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression.

Tumblr has announced that on December 17th, the social blogging site will begin banning all adult content—with a few tame exceptions—from its network. This is an out-of-touch action from a service that will see it drive away countless users. Even worse, the ban will disproportionately harm marginalized creators.
Adult content is not allowed on Tumblr, regardless of how old you are. You can read more about what kinds of content are not allowed on Tumblr in our Community Guidelines. 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. Written content such as erotica, nudity related to political or newsworthy speech, and nudity found in art, such as sculptures and illustrations, are also stuff that can be freely posted on Tumblr.
We restrict content that involves nudity or is sexual in nature, and are committed to ensuring that Twitch is not used for sexual exploitation or violence. While we understand that some nudity or sexual content might be intended for educational, scientific, artistic, newsworthy, or academic purposes, we restrict this content due to the diversity in age and cultural backgrounds of our global community. We may, in limited educational and artistic contexts, make pre-approved exceptions to these policies.
It has now been three months since blogging network Tumblr scrubbed its platform of adult content. Rather surprisingly, instead of knuckling down specifically on the exploitation of minors, Tumblr responded in December by filtering out all explicit content, entirely. Since its inception inTumblr has made a name for itself as a liberal and artistic network. Crediting its success and popularity to the richness and breadth of content available on the platform, Tumblr has a famously lax attitude toward adult-oriented material on its service, which has previously caused it to be briefly banned in Indonesia.
