Tumblr lost almost 100 million site visits one month after porn ban



Tumblr’s ban on pornography and adult content has led to a fifth of its users deserting the platform, figures reveal.

The ban, which came into effect on 17 December, provoked a backlash from users who claimed it would penalise sex-positive, LGBT and NSFW art communities.

Visits to the Tumblr website fell from 521 million in December to 437 million in January, according to data from web analytics firm SimilarWeb.

Tumblr’s decision to update its content policy came after the discovery of child sexual abuse imagery on its blogs.

The ban goes far beyond illegal content, however, as it covers “photos, videos, or Gifs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content – including photos, videos, Gifs and illustrations – that depict sex acts.”
