As of Tuesday, the popular social media company Instagram has announced their latest blocked hashtag – #EDM.
If you’re a lover of Electronic Music and are on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed the variety of things that are posted under #EDM, and you’ve probably taken note that it’s not always the most appropriate content.
“In this case, #EDM was being used to share content that violates our guidelines around nudity.” said Instagram spokesperson, Gabe Madway, in a statement with TIME. Though not quoted, he also added that the social media platform is working on ways to better enforce and communicate policies in order for hashtags like this on the blacklist to be restored.
In the meantime #EDM is no longer able to be searched, and fans of the music will have to find other ways to share their posts, and hopefully, with more PLUR than nudity this time.
