The Social Media Moral Slide Continues…
One of the reasons so many people enjoy Instagram is that the company has least tried at some level to hold back the flood of sex and nudity that has virtually taken over platforms like Twitter. But since no good deed goes unpunished, the site “The Hustle” reports that yesterday, porn performers have begun protesting Instagram’s nudity guidelines:
As reported: “Adult performers have taken an #instaSTRIKE straight to IG’s Silicon Valley doorstep where they picketed the company for what they say is its wrongful termination of sex workers’ accounts.”
As Instagram grows as an influencer platform (expected to hit $2.3 billion in influencer marketing by 2020) decisions like this can impact massive numbers of people. We’ve also recently seen other platforms like Facebook and Twitter generate criticism for deleting accounts (mostly related to free speech issues), but to my knowledge, this is the first massive effort over pornography or those who promote it.
And as to be expected, Instagram caved. By the end of the day “The Hustle” reports that “Instagram agreed to reinstate deleted accounts from a list provided by the [adult performers] union.”
The moral slide continues.
