Vine Bans Users from Sharing Porn

Mar 06, 2014

Twitter’s social network for videos announced Thursday that users would no longer be able to share sexual content with the video-sharing app.

Vine said in a blog post that the change to its terms of service would not affect the vast majority of people that use its video sharing service.

“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,” the company said.

Vine isn't the first social network to take a stand against porn. Facebook also prohibits users from sharing explicitly sexual content. Vine’s parent company Twitter has a policy in place against using pornographic photos as profile, header or background images.
