ABOUT TURN: Google has scrapped a plan to prohibit porn on its blogging site.

Google Inc has abandoned its plan to ban adult content on its blogging site Blogger after receiving negative feedback from users.

Google will instead "step up enforcement" of its existing policy prohibiting commercial porn, Jessica Pelegio, the company's social product support manager, wrote on Google Product Forums.

Bloggers can continue to tag any blog with sexually explicit content as "adult" that is placed behind a warning page.

Google said earlier this week that Blogger users would no longer be able to post sexually explicit pictures or videos on the platform starting on March 23. — Reuters
