The Disturbing "Pro-Ana" Boards That Pinterest Banned
Pinterest recently announced it would ban pro-anorexia pages and other potentially harmful content. Just how active was the "pro-ana" community on Pinterest? Here's a look.
Pinterest's new terms of service dictate that as of April 6, any pins or boards that “explicitly encourage self-harm or abuse" will be banned from the site, a move that echoes Tumblr's decision to ban similar content last month. That April 6 date is still almost two weeks away, which means tons of alarming pro-anorexia and "thinspirational" content is still live on the site.
