  • Image-sharing site Imgur announced this week that it’s distancing itself from Reddit’s smuttier corners and will no longer display content from the forum’s NSFW communities.
  • All previously uploaded content will stay at its original URL, but now if you search for r/NSFW or any other Reddit subsection focused on child-unfriendly content, you’ll hit a new landing page instead.
  • One large enough to keep the site averaging 274 million monthly visits even after Reddit integrated native image hosting in 2016, a move that cost Imgur roughly one-quarter of its monthly submissions to Reddit according to one data scientist.
