After four years, the company announced the change in its community standards.
Tumblr allows nudity on the platform again! Tumblr, the platform created by David Karp in 2007, updated the community guidelines and will now allow content that includes nudity again, but with limitations.
Users can now post photos or illustrations, but this content will have to have tags such as ‘ Mature’ and ‘Sexual Theme’ , to be identified and also so that the platform can place it in a place where it will not be sent to minors. age.
“We now welcome a broader range of expression, creativity, and art on Tumblr , including content related to the human body,” the Tumblr post states.
“Even if your creations contain nudity, adult or sexual themes, you can display them using the appropriate community tag,” the company added.
Earlier, the CEO of Automattic, the platform’s parent company, said in a Tumblr post that allowing sexual content is not viable in 2022.
One of the reasons explained is that Apple’s App Store and credit card companies have a policy against pornography and this would create a problem for profiles that would have a paid subscription system.
The ban generated by Tumblr on this topic occurred in December 2018, when the platform was owned by Verizon, and now, four years later, the decision is reversed.
