Despite this many users still get away with posting explicit images or homemade porn.

Instagram was first launched in October 2010 as a site that allows people to digitally enhance photos and share them on the internet. The site has its own application that is used by millions of smart phones world-wide. It soon became popular and it was acquired in April 2012 by the internet giant Facebook for close to $1 billion in cash and stock.

But Instagram’s popularity is a knife with two-edges. There’s a new craze happening and people call it “instaporn”. Back in June we reported about a problem in US where teenagers send sexually explicit photos made with their cell phones. Instagram has been facing this exact problem. People use it to share xxx content with their friends or with strangers. Some even use it to promote video chat services or xxx dating sites. #instaboobs and #instasex photo tags list more than 200000 photos. And the two tags are just a random example. There are more graphic tags that list up to tens of thousands of xxx images uploaded by Instagram users.
