Update: The video has been taken down now, your home feed should be SFW again. Still waiting on an official response.
Video sharing app Vine came under fire this past weekend for having a bit of a porn problem. That it has adult content on the network shouldn’t surprise anyone, and as long as it’s something you have to look for, I think criticizing them for it is as sensible as criticizing Google. But today (right now, as of this writing) the top featured pick on my home feed, and on the feed of many users (if not all) judging by Twitter, is a porn video. Labelled “Editor’s Pick.”
That’s a problem. Even with the fact that you have to click to make the video actually play, that’s a problem. It’s unclear how exactly an adult video with the hashtag #dildoplay got to to the top of the feed, and got an “Editor’s Pick” recommendation, but we’re reaching out to Vine to see if they can provide some kind of explanation.
To be clear, this isn’t just something that’s coming up in a public stream that’s the same for everyone. It’s actually topping the Home feed. Which is where your personalized stream is, generally consisting of items shared by your friends. So it’s not something users were likely to miss if they were waking up and checking the stream on the hottest new social network this morning.
