This new content policy follows extended consultation with concerned citizens and advocacy groups like the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, formerly Morality in Media, which has listed Google or its products on its annual Dirty Dozen List for the past three years. This public awareness effort challenged Google and other companies (and even government agencies) to curb sexual exploitation and protect children in their retail, advertising and app policies.
In 2014 Google kicked pornography ads out of Adwords® and cleaned up GooglePlay® by prohibiting pornographic apps. Now, as of March 2015, Google will remove pornography from Blogger®, while allowing videos which use nudity in an artistic, educational, or scientific context to remain, when the policy takes effect March 23.
Please thank Google for these sweeping policy changes to protect children and curb sexual exploitation. Send comments to the company at EndSexualExploitation.org/Google. Also, tell them you are a grateful customer and look forward to similar improvements on YouTube, Safe Search, and Google Images!
