Is Instagram going R-Rated?
During Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit in San Francisco on Tuesday Oct. 6, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom revealed that the company has talked about creating an R-Rated version of the service. During the past months, Instagram has been highly criticized regarding its contradictory policy on nudity – specifically, the service has been under fire for its approach to #FreeTheNipple photographs, many of which are being deleted for violating Instagram’s policy.
When asked if the company is considering an R-Rated version of the service, Systrom answered : “There have been discussions” but added that it can be tricky to decide what’s R-Rated and what’s not. “We’re not in the business of hosting porn. We focus on people being able to express themselves in beautiful ways.”
Well, we guess that we’ll just have to wait and see what happens!
