Tumblr to Remove Adult Content by December 17th

Controversy has surrounded Tumblr in the past few weeks. They have recently been pulled from the iOS AppStore after claims of child pornography being posted. At the time of this post it was still not available to be installed.

Tumblr has been much more relaxed in the areas of adult content. It has been popular for those in the adult industry as a free place to post content. Which the decision will be met with controversy in those fields with them creating years of content on Tumblr.

Tumblr defines adult content as real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts.” If you were curious.

If anyone has created content that way it will be set to a “private mode” after the deadline.

The fallout is yet to occur for Tumblr. The question is where will it transfer over to next?
