Instagram Brings #Curvy Back


Posted on

However as pointed out by many of the women who participated in the #curvee movement to protest the ban, other terms more obviously related to explicit content were still searchable.

“We want people to be able to express themselves, and hashtags are a great way to do that," a spokesperson for Instagram tells BuzzFeed Life.

"At the same time, we have a responsibility to act when we see hashtags being used to spread inappropriate content to our community. In the case of #curvy, we don't like putting restrictions around a term that many people use in very positive ways, so we have decided to unblock the hashtag while taking steps to ensure that it's not used as a vehicle for bad content."

Only a few photos are up under the tag so far, so you know what that means... time to start posting!
