    The ban comes about three weeks after Tumblr was booted from Apple’s App Store after it was revealed that child pornography material had slipped through the platform's filter and wound up on the site.

    Starting December 17, popular microblogging website Tumblr is set to ban all adult content from the platform, including explicit sexual content and most nudity.

    This decision apparently did not sit well with many social users who were quick to criticize Tumblr management via other platforms like Twitter.

    Some even called other microblog users to hold a so called Log Off Protest by not logging on Tumblr on the first day of the ban.

    Tumblr’s ban comes about three weeks after its was booted from Apple’s App Store after it was revealed that child pornography material had slipped through the platform's filter and wound up on the site.

    In response to this development, Tumblr management declared that the offending content was immediately removed upon discovery, and announced their plans to ban all adult content on the website.
