Pinterest Prohibits Posting of Pro-Anorexia Content

It seems that the mounting pressure surrounding scores of 'thinspiration' message boards made the online 'pinboard' community, Pinterest, to ban its users from posting the pro-anorexia content.

It has been made clear that from April 6, no user would be allowed to post any content which can inflict any health issue to other users. It has been observed that all those who fall under the category of pro-anorexia supporters have been posting content which could prove potentially dangerous for others, and this is what made the site owners to come into action, thereby sending an email to all of them to inform about the coming ban.

The imminent ban would include content that “creates a risk of harm, loss, physical or mental injury, emotional distress, death, disability, disfigurement, or physical or mental illness to yourself to any other person, or to any animal”, said the report.

With this step, Pinterest has become another site after social media sites like Facebook and Tumblr to become victims of such pro-anorexia users, who are more or less using the platform to impart harmful message to other users.

Though Pinterest started off really well in 2010, it had become a breeding ground of such “pro-ana” communities of late.
