Instagram against revenge porn

18:59 Apr 16 2015 California, USA

Description
Instagram is clarifying its rules around sexual, illegal and other inappropriate content, including posts involving revenge porn.

The site now expressly forbids users from threatening to post intimate images of others, as well as sexual content involving minors, the service said in its updated policies on Thursday. More broadly, photos showing sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks aren’t allowed, Instagram says.

For safety reasons, Instagram may also remove images that show nude or partially nude children, the company said.

Instagram previously had a ban on nude images and other content like photos depicting extreme violence or gore. But as the Facebook-owned company has grown, it’s now clarifying its rules, aiming to keep its app friendly for a general audience. Instagram, which Facebook bought for US$1 billion in 2012, now has more than 300 million users who log in monthly.
