No porn for you: Vine changes TOS

If you tend to visit more unconventional sources for your pornographic needs, you might want to sit down for this. Vine has just announced that they are officially banning sexually explicit posts.

They have previously taken action in making sexual content more difficult to find, but the company is finally calling it quits on pornographic posts.

For more than 99 percent of our users, this doesn’t really change anything. For the rest: we don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet –– we just prefer not to be the source of it.

They are, however, allowing posts that pertain to “primarily documentary, educational or artistic in nature”.

If you have any questions regarding what you can and cannot post, here are the new Terms of Service. It explains everything you need to know about content blocking and what exactly they allow on their social network.

Also, as you may remember, Twitter owns Vine. Twitter created Vine. Will Twitter be the next social network to dump pornography? Who knows.
