Sites like Tumblr, a free blog hosting platform, are popular among fandom communities.

SAN FRANCISCO: Tumblr on Dec 3 said it is banning adult content from the Yahoo-owned blogging platform, which saw its app pulled from Apple’s App Store last month over child pornography. 

Tumblr will begin enforcing its new policy on Dec 17, giving users who host unwanted explicit content an opportunity to take their imagery elsewhere, according to chief executive Jeff D’Onofrio.
