Vine

When you step into the playground, you follow the rules of the owner

Making a move towards keeping its service family-friendly for all, Vine is revising its rules and terms of service to completely ban the posting of "explicit sexual content." After reiterating that the Vine community and overall creativity of content has grown, it points out that a very small percentage of videos being posted are not a good fit for the community as a whole.

"For more than 99 percent of our users, this doesn’t really change anything. For the rest: we don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet –– we just prefer not to be the source of it."

Says the succinct blog post, reminding folks that it has no problem inherently with the type of content, but that it can be better posted somewhere other than on Vine. Users will now have the option to report content if it is indeed explicit, and Vine even goes as far as to post a help article FAQ to let you know what it will consider explicit content when it comes to blocking and removing it from the service.

Although we can see a few people get upset over being censored online, it comes down to the point that if you agree to the terms of service of an app, you have to play by its rules. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other options out there.

That's the joke.

THERE ARE OTHER PORN WEBSITES ON THE INTERNET?!?!

ಠ益ಠ

NickLippert says:

I doubt it. They are lying to us!

mwara244 says:

I think they are lying about the numbers, 99% use it for wholesome vids and ONLY 1% uses it for nudity and XXX, yeah OK. I have seen about 99% used for adult stuff and 1 % for funny vids and that was without searching for any adult content on Vine.

benurd says:

Cool but this sux. Vine after dark was awesome. I have an adult account and a regular acct just for this exxxactly purpose. Guess it's back to myvidster

Playground? This is Vine picking up their ball and walking home in a huff.

eahinrichsen says:

Vine is seven-second videos, right? Wouldn't Vine porn be essentially like spanking it to animated GIFs?

kelayz says:

But with sound!!!!

That reminds me of an old xkcd comic. Hold on... it's number 411 :D

lancec50 says:

I think it is stupid. They started censoring a post as being explicit and then you had to click on it to play said video. And honestly that is a great solution. It is bad when at work a girl moaning just starts playing. That is what I love about Twitter there is no censorship. What are they now turning into Facebook? I see there will be a big outrage to this new policy.

I need a new playground

ScottJ says:

If you find six-seconds of sexual gratification satisfying, you are doing it wrong.

Jay Holm says:

Exactly!

The twerk vids were pretty good

fuzzylumpkin says:

Wait... Aren't vine videos six seconds long? Surely vine porn would be more frustrating than erotic!

It takes you longer than 6 seconds? You're doing it wrong.

no reason to have this app installed now.

Seems like this is more good then bad as children could see it and when I mean children, I mean kiddies who are definitely under 13.

What's wrong with that

Not all children grew up like you did.

I have the Best of Vine app. Some of the vids are pretty funny. But mostly they prove that idiocracy is at hand.

Good! That crap is getting out of control.

Posted via a device much better than yours.

CaCHooKaMan says:

time to delete vine off my phone now

SirBobaFett says:

This is like people who use tumblr for porn. Hot tip, use porn sites for porn. Use other sites for other things. You're welcome.

Posted via Android Central App

It's their network, they can do what they want with it. If it costs them their business, that's their problem. If their business continues to grow, in part due to this move, then more power to them.

Not sure what all the huff is about. Just move on. Consider it Vine's loss and take your business elsewhere.

tramsay09 says:

Just use YouPorn for porn

ScottJ says:

PornHub.com...<cough>

Mamaluka says:

I agree, why the eff would anyone consider this something devastating with sites like youporn. I've watched vine with my kids and I don't find it interesting enough to download and I'm pretty retarded when it comes to behaving online. Snapchat, Instagram, FB, BBM. Two I never use are Twitter and vine

Well, I have an inherent problem with the idea of porn so even if the jaded execs don't say it: it's disgusting and only for degenerates.
