The new censorship flag crowdsources content policing
and will stroke some much needed drama.
Pinterest is not satisfied with being a crowdscraper of third-party content.
Pinterest is now crowdsourcing the censorship of "offensive content" uploaded by its users, to its users.
Pinterest users are not just unpaid scrapers, and a legal shield; they are now Pinterest's censorship board.
Pin Hags can now bitch and moan to Pinterest about the following offenses to their sensitbility:
- Nudity or Pornography
- Attacks a group or Individual
- Graphic Violence
- Hateful Speech or Symbols
- Actively promotes self-harm
According to PC Mag, and on the plus side, the drama is bound to erupt:
Blocking someone will prevent you and the other person from being able to follow each other's boards, as well as like, repin, or comment on each other's pins.
