According to the new Tumblr guidelines, publications that include photos, GIFs or videos of intimate parts, female nipples or sexual acts, including illustrations, will not be allowed. There are exceptions and they are free: images of classic works of art, political protests involving nudity, photos of breastfeeding and postpartum, in addition to erotic texts. The move left several members of the social network dissatisfied and some announced that they will be leaving the site.
Tumblr will monitor all publications with algorithms capable of identifying nudity and pornographic content. There will also be a tool for people to report irregular posts. Authors who do not respect the rules will receive e-mail notifications with a warning that inappropriate material will be blocked. If desired, the user can appeal the platform decision.
