Google Content Policy Update : Bans Sexually Explicit Content on Blogger Blog spot

Hello Folks,…. Google Content Policy Update : Bans Sexually Explicit Content on Blogger Blog Spot, we all know that Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows multi -user blogs with time-stamped entries. It was developed by Pyra Labs, which was bought by Google in 2003.Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at a sub domain of blogspot.com.

A user can have up to 100 blogs per account. Blogger is a free service for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. We believe that Blogger increases the availability of information, encourages healthy debate and makes possible new connections between people. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression.

Google is cracking down on adult content posted to its popular Blogger service.

The company started notifying users on Monday that they have until March 23 2015 to delete “images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity.”

Google content policy update said it will not delete existing blogs that haven’t been purged of explicit content by March 23 but warned it will set them to “private” — meaning only the user and people with whom he/she has directly shared the blog will be able to view it.

Blogs violating the new content policy that are created after the deadline may be removed, Google content policy update cautioned. “We’ll still allow nudity presented in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts, or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content,” reads a message sent to users.

Google blogs have “blogger” or “blogspot” in the URLs.

The company, which has not yet responded to Global News inquiries, has not given a reason for the changes. Nor has Google said how many users are affected by the new policy, although the figure is believed to be in the millions.

According to its Existing Google Content Policy Update for Blogger, Google states that adult content is allowed, “including images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity,” and that “censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression.”

Blogger sites with adult content are currently required to have a warning that reads: “The blog that you are about to view may contain content only suitable for adults.”
