Don’t Worry Tumblr Fans, Yahoo Says Your Porn Is Safe!

If you haven’t heard, Yahoo is purchasing the blogging site Tumblr for $1.1 billion! That made many Tumblr users uneasy considering it’s a place many consider their online home, and some of their houses are filthy. While by no means the majority, there is a community of Tumblr users whose profiles focus on pornographic material.

 

With a huge family-safe company like Yahoo entering the equation, it’s natural to fear explicit content would be heavily monitored/moderated. But in a press release from Yahoo, that’s not going to be the case. The company “promises not to screw it up” and notes that Tumblr will continue to operate independently.

 

That was echoed by Tumblr chief David Karp, who released a note of his own. “We’re not turning purple,” he writes, “Our headquarters isn’t moving. Our team isn’t changing. Our roadmap isn’t changing. And our mission — to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve — certainly isn’t changing.” Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer says, “I think the richness and breadth of content available on Tumblr — even though it may not be as brand safe as what’s on our site — is what’s really exciting and allows us to reach even more users.” (Yahoo News)
