New NSFW content restrictions enrage Tumblr users

Tumblr users have always had the option of marking their account as NSFW, and since around 10% of Tumblr is porn, people were generally pretty good at labelling their blogs. 

However, under Tumblr’s new content restrictions, posts from Adult-rated blogs will no longer show up on tags. Any tags. Also, Tumblr is able to flag your account as Adult without you labelling it as such—although users do have the option of appealing to the “Trust & Safety Team” if their feel their blog has been flagged unfairly.

Adult blogs are now unsearchable.

If your blog has been flagged as Adult, nothing you post will ever appear on Tumblr’s public tag searches. Your posts will only be visible to your own followers and the followers of people who reblog your content.

This means that if you want to publicize something like a Kickstarter campaign or political message, or even to signal boost a personal plea for help, that post will still not show up on Tumblr’s internal search engine. You are cut off from everyone except your own circle of followers.

Also, Many Tumblr users are finding that some tags have disappeared entirely from Tumblr’s iPhone app.

It’s unclear whether this is directly linked to the new content restrictions, but for example, iPhone users searching the #gay, #lesbian or #bisexual tags have reported seeing the result “No posts found,” although #bi, #lgbt and #queer still produce results. [READ MORE]

How to discover new music on Tumblr

Tumblr is harnessing the power of its tag discovery system to highlight the best music content for its bloggers.

The popular microblogging platform recruited a team of editors, including the staff of Rolling Stone, Billboard, and Pitchfork, to curate and promote new music and events.

On Tumblr, there are more than 45 curated tags monitored by volunteer editors. These editors can select content to appear on a tag’s front page, giving it increased visibility.

“Before me there wasn’t anyone who could speak to the intricacies of the way the music industry works, and there wasn’t anyone who could police how the tag editing works,” Nate Auerbach, Tumblr’s music guru, told Billboard.

Tumblr has also launched music.tumblr.com to highlight music-related stories and features.

The 20 most popular tags on Instagram

Like a record store with vinyls placed in the wrong section, Instagram images are not always categorized correctly when Instagram users (IGers) add tags to their filtered masterpieces.

Browsing tags to find folks to follow is a great way to get more involved with the community. Tracking down people with whom you have shared interests isn’t always easy. As with Tumblr, however, tags help to mitigate the problem.

Looking through tagged photos is a little easier following a recent update to Instagram’s iPhone application. Yet it falls to Webstagram, a third-party website, to tell us which are the most-popular tags of all time within the community.

Many of them were used by IGers seeking to get their photos on the Popular page, a section of Instagram that featured the most interesting, liked, and commented upon photos of the day. That may soon change, however, as Instagram is ditching the Popular page in favor of a new Explore feature.

In the meantime, here’s a list of the top 20 Instagram tags.
