I have over 5,000 followers on Tumblr.
The platform was great. You could schedule your posts well in advance. That meant keeping ahead allowed me to build my audience.
Some of you probably found me through Tumblr.
This blog’s statistics show I get more people coming here from Tumblr than any other social media.
But Tumblr dropped porn.
According to their terms of service:
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. If you spot a post that you don’t think belongs on Tumblr, period, you can report it: From the dashboard or in search results, tap or click the share menu (paper airplane) at the bottom of the post, and hit “Report.” If you’re on mobile web, tap the menu at the top right of the post, and select “Report” from the dropdown.
What is “adult content?”
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.
So I began to produce filtered content. Tumblr didn’t approve. They continually flagged my posts.
Here is the pic …
How does this go against the guidelines they published and I quoted above?
Then I began creating plain graphics. No nudity. And they continued to harrass me by flagging my posts, which forced me to appeal, wasting my time and energy. Plus many were never reviewed leaving the post in limbo.
So as of today, Tumblr, you win. Have fun, because I see more XXX rated material on your platform than I do on Twitter – and they allow porn, for now…
