NOTE: For all latest, breaking news related to Tumblr adult content ban as well as its alternatives, head here.

So Tumblr’s adult content ban came into force yesterday (December 17). The company came up with a new blog post announcing this, while emphasizing on aspects like flagged items won’t be deleted, the platform fully recognizes its special obligation to minority communities, and some visuals of what all content is still permitted.

December 17 also saw a ‘log off’ protest from a section of Tumblr users. We covered the protest in detail here. There’s currently no information on how big the protest was, and more importantly, how successful it was (the aim was to put a dent in Tumblr’s earnings).

Logging off from Tumblr for 24 hours, however, wasn’t the only way users were protesting. Turns out a lot of them were also leaving negative reviews for the Tumblr app, especially on the Apple App Store.

But curiously, many users have shared anomalies they observed with the Tumblr app reviews on the App Store. Take a look at these reports:

Investigations are on, as our team is looking into the matter. As an when we find something worth sharing on the matter, we’ll update the story.

PiunikaWeb is a unique initiative that mainly focuses on investigative journalism. This means we do a lot of hard work to come up with news stories that are either ‘exclusive,’ ‘breaking,’ or ‘curated’ in nature. Perhaps that’s the reason our work has been picked by the likes of Forbes, Foxnews, Gizmodo, TechCrunch, Engadget, The Verge, Macrumors, and more. Do take a tour of our website to get a feel of our work. And if you like what we do, stay connected with us on Twitter (@PiunikaWeb) and other social media channels to receive timely updates on stories we publish.

My interest in technology and writing started back in 2010. Since then, I have written for many leading publications, including Computerworld, GSMArena, TechSpot, HowtoForge, LinuxJournal, and MakeTechEasier to name a few. Here at PiunikaWeb, I started with covering smartphone related breaking stories as well as some other interesting stuff, but now I have switched over to more of a leadership role. I also take care of several operational aspects of the website. Some of my current responsibilities include business development, and working with Piunika to make sure we’re progressing as envisioned. If you want to get in touch, I am active on LinkedIN, and also available on Twitter/X.
