Vine has previously taken steps to hide pornographic and sexually explicit videos shared by its users, but today its outright banning the content. The company has updated both its rules and terms of service to prohibit sexually explicit material. It seems as though Vine is also looking to head off any censorship controversy by outright admitting, We don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet –– we just prefer not to be the source of it. The changes are effective immediately, and Vine has posted a help center article to help users understand what sort of clips are permitted compared to those that are now banned. Vine says that depictions of nudity or partial nudity that are primarily documentary, educational or artistic in nature are still allowed under the new rules.
