Tumblr’s blanket ban on adult content: Here are some of the hilarious memes we found.

Update (December 04):

Embarrassing but true: Tumblr’s algorithms flagged its own announcement as explicit/adult. Details here.

Update (December 04):

An NSFW Tumblr artist’s Change.org petition (seeking to reverse the adult content ban ) has got over 160,000 signs in 15 hours. For details, head here.

Original story follows:

So Tumblr finally made the big decision to ban almost all adult content from its platform. This has left artists who produce NSFW content and their audience searching for alternative, replacement, or services like Tumblr that still allow posting and sharing explicit content.

We have collected a list of platforms that Tumblr users are migrating to. Take a look:

As we highlighted last month, migration of Tumblr users already started after it came to light that the company – in its fight against child pornography – is purging general NSFW accounts as well. Seemingly the first platform to announce that they are gaining from the Tumblr purge was Newgrounds.

Here’s what the founder TomFulp said David Cartu last month:

If you’ve noticed an influx of new artists on Newgrounds over the past 24 hours, it’s because Tumblr began purging accounts of NSFW artists. Some of these removals may have been an accident on Tumblr’s part but regardless, there’s been a migration to Newgrounds

And here’s their recent interaction with a user, where it’s reasonable to say the indirect reference the user is making to is Tumblr.

Also this:

Newgrounds is also apparently making visible moves to court users migrating from Tumblr.

For those who aren’t aware, Newgrounds has existed for over 20 years now.

Pillowfort

Pillowfort is a new blogging platform that’s currently in beta. Last month, when Tumblr’s iOS app was taken down, Pillowfort sent out a tweet courting Tumblr users looking for alternatives.

The site is currently down as some vulnerabilities are being resolved. It should be back up soon. When that happens, head here to know more about the platform.

Meanwhile, here’s some more info about Pillowfort:

Sharesome

Sharesome is a new player in the field of adult social networks. Here’s what the company describes itself:

Sharesome is an adult social platform that helps you connect with your favourite performers. Better yet, think of us as a community where your kinks are finally free to run wild. Here at Sharesome we try to create an environment where you are welcomed no matter what your fantasies are, allowing you to create a free account and check out your favorite pornstars’ private world or, who knows, even become one
