Google reverses decision to ban Explicit content On Blogger

Users protested the search giant's decision to block all sexually explicit content on its blogging platform

Looks like porn lovers are going to have their wishes granted finally after it has been asserted that even Google hasn’t been able to erase sexually explicit content from the Internet. Only a few days back Google announced its plans to ban such sexual content on its Blogger but the decision soon got unpopular among millions of users who were in against the option of curbing sexually explicit content.

Well, it goes without saying that the customers always win – Google ultimately gave in to the protesting porn fans who weren’t at all excited about this new development. The search giant has announced that it is going to go back on its policy and reverse its decision meaning that it will not ban the adult content on its Blogger.

Prior to this, Google had been quite clear about its new plans and appeared quite firm with its announcement which clearly said that it would no longer allow "images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity" on Blogger starting from March 23rd. Google had announced that the blogs which would be containing any porn content would be made private till the admin could delete the sexual content.

After the hue and cry from vast number of users, Google has reversed its decision and announced that it would allow porn content on Blogger but there is still some consideration. Google has asked people to tag their pages which contain nudity so the Blogger can display an "adult content" warning page before that content is openly displayed.

Google's Social Product Support Manager, Jessica Pelegio, wrote in a post on the Blogger Help Forum, "This week, we announced a change to Blogger's porn policy. We've had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we've decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn."
