Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used.

After December 17th, any explicit posts will be flagged and deleted by algorithms. For now, Tumblr is emailing users who have posted adult content flagged by algorithms and notifying them that their content will soon be hidden from view.

Under Oath, Tumblr has been cleaning up its platform more rapidly than it had done in previous years.

User numbers will fall rapidly and within a year, Tumblr will be as important as MySpace.
