(IRISH INDEPENDENT) — Social network Pinterest will permit more nude images even though its rivals are clamping down, reports claim.

As Facebook announced that it would tighten its rules on potentially offensive images, the online pinboard site said that its strict no nudity policy had led to growing complaints from photographers and artists.

“Pinterest is about expressing your passions and people are passionate about art and that may include nudes,” the company told the Financial Times. “So we’re going to try to accommodate that.”
