Tumblr has significantly fewer page views since the company is pushing pornographic content off the platform, according to an analysis by research agency SimilarWeb on Thursday.

On December 17, 2018, the social medium Tumblr banned pornographic material. The platform was widely used for sharing nude images and as a result, the number of page views has decreased considerably in recent months.

For the ban, Tumblr had about 521 million page views per month and in January that was only 437 million a month. A decrease of 17 percent.

Tumblr introduced the new rules after Apple removed the Tumblr app from the App Store in November 2018. The app did not comply with the App Store regulations due to the nude images.
