Sharesome Responds to Instagram Policy Changes

NEW YORK — Tudor Bold, CEO of NSFW social media platform Sharesome, and the company’s two founders, Ralf Kappe and Tam Tam, have responded to Instagram following its announcement that it has “begun reducing the spread of posts that are inappropriate but do not go against Instagram’s Community Guidelines.”

According to Bold, the move means if someone’s post is sexually suggestive, but doesn’t contain a sex act or nudity, it will still get them in trouble and either shadow-banned or kicked off from Instagram.

“We see this will affect every adult content creator on Instagram: Porn stars, live cam and erotic models, you name it. Just call it what it is: it’s a sex worker purge, because now it doesn’t matter anymore if they comply with your guidelines or not,” Bold said. “You will use ‘machine learning’ to rule sex workers out. But we guess, you will keep the Kardashian ad business up and running.”

“If you are in fact not targeting sex workers, now would be a good time to reassure them that they are still welcome on Instagram (as long as they follow your guidelines, of course). If not — and we bet that it will play out like that — they are always welcome on Sharesome, the NSFW social media platform built with the needs of sex workers in mind,” Bold added. “You (and Tumblr) built your business on ‘sexy,’ but it seems you just forgot about that.”

“Around 600M people consume adult content every month,” Sharesome founder Ralf Kappe wrote in a blog post for Medium. “I urge the sex worker community to build an unstoppable social media beast that can be bigger than Twitter, and almost as big as Instagram, based on these numbers.”
