Blogger Bans Sexually Explicit Contents

blogger bans sexually explicit contents

In an updated entry in its support database, Google has announced today that it would no longer allow explicit content on Blogger. In this post we discussed about Blogger Bans Sexually Explicit Contents.

Users will be prohibited to post sexually overt materials – such included are graphic nude images and video, in the blogging platform from March 23rd.

Any existing blogs that feature explicit materials would be made private after that date, but graphic images and videos would remain though Google says they would only be visible to the blog owner, admins and other people who has shared the blog with.

“For any blogs created after March 23, 2015, we may remove the blog or take other action if it includes content that is sexually explicit or shows graphic nudity as explained in our content policy,” the article said.

Conversely, Google will still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts.

Blogger’s previous adult content policy allowed explicit images and videos if the blog was marked as “adult,” stating “censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom on expression.” This step tails the example of Vine that prohibited the sharing of pornographic clips last March. Tumblr on the other hand, has kept resilient about sexually explicit content.

The new adult content policy of Blogger however may lead to the decline of users, and lose them to its rivals.
