There are Over 1 million porn video hidden on Instagram , under arabic hashtags.

This topic might sound a little too familiar to you, since just 2 months ago,  many porn videos were found hidden on YouTube using the “Hungarian” language.

Over 1 million porn video hidden on Instagram:

YouTube and Instagram’s guidelines clearly state that pornographic materials are not allowed on their platform. And both social networks have teams that review flagged materials. Moreover instagram has banned certain English explicit hashtags from being showed in search. 

Yet users seem to find a way around the policy, by using non English terms or hashtags. I came across this discovery by searching for the hashtag “افلام” which means movies in Arabic.

Of course, the length of the movies is limited on instagram, but not their effect on the young generation. By now many kids and teens have probably seen porn on Instagram . Even pornographic websites have  a warning page that tells visitors that the site has explicit content.

Update #1:

a year later, i try in this video to search for porn using simple arabic hashtags, to find out that instagram has blocked all the basic hashtags, and that people are now using very long hashtags to post and search for porn. Checkout my video to know more about what I am talking about.

Update #2:

After that this article got featured in over 100 website worldwide, Instagram has finally blocked all the arabic hashtags used for porn. As of 15th March 2016 this trick no longer works.
