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

Ever since Tumblr took the big decision of banning everything NSFW from its platform, affected users have been looking for alternative platforms. This has not only resulted in already existing (and sometimes very old) platforms gaining user base, but also new platforms being built to court Tumblr refugees.

We at PiunikaWeb have been maintaining an exhausting and ever increasing list of Tumblr alternatives, and today, we are updating it with another name: Youllo.

Seemingly born in December last year, Youllo calls itself as the new adult social microblogging network. “A special welcome to all #tumblrrefugees,” the platform’s Twitter bio reads.


Youllo is a new and free social microblogging network. With Youllo you can create your own microblog, post your photos, videos and other content, or simply follow other people. Follow other publisher and find new friends. Youllo was made for give you the freedom to publish adult, explicit, and pornographic

As you can see in the screenshot and the Twitter post below, Youllo markets the ability to import Tumblr blogs as one of its key selling points.


We created a dummy account to know how the process works. Firstly, this is how the create post area looks like:


Scroll down a bit and you’ll see the option to import Tumblr blogs.


Click/tap on this button, and you’ll be asked to perform some steps. Like, you’ll have to create an app Tumblr so that your blog can be connected to Tumblr servers.


Then you need to fill in some fields like Application name and website.


And finally, the fifth and the last step is to enter the OAuth Consumer key and the Secret key:


What’s more, there’s also a preview tool using which you can see how your Tumblr posts would look like on Youllo.
