Instagram To Start Censoring Pictures With Suggestive Nudity

Instagram is cracking down on its nudity policy, kinda. Soon, the site will start classifying suggestive photos as “sensitive content,” blurring selected images and videos on your feednthe same way Twitter does.

According to a post on Instagram’s blog:

Soon you may notice a screen over sensitive photos and videos when you scroll through your feed or visit a profile. While these posts don’t violate our guidelines, someone in the community has reported them and our review team has confirmed they are sensitive. This change means you are less likely to have surprising or unwanted experiences in the app. If you’d like to see a post that is covered with a screen, simply tap to reveal the photo or video.

It hasn't slowed Twitter down.  We'll see what effects it has on the Gram.
