As of December 17th, Tumblr will ban porn on its platform. This change in the policies of the site has generated an exodus that is growing more and more. Tumblr users are looking for a place to settle and they may have found it: it is called Pillowfort, and although it is not quite ready, it seems promising among the community that abandons Tumblr by forced marches.
“Users who leave Tumbr seem to have found a new place … although it is still in beta.”
Its operation is similar to Tumblr. It allows to publish photos, texts, illustrations and GIF and share it with the whole community. You can publish content publicly or privately, but the idea of Pillowfort is to share the work of each one with all the rest of the users. Including content of a sexual nature.
Pillowfort is not quite ready, since it was released at the beginning of the year, after being financed through Kickstarter and Indiegogo, to only a few users who received invitations to enter the beta of the site.
Despite being a closed site and, according to its users, still not very functional, the promise of a site in which to share all types of content has meant that the team of developers has received thousands of requests to register from the Tumblr ad that It has brought the end to adult content.
It is clear that in this early development phase, Pillowfort is not prepared to receive hundreds of thousands of users, but its growing fame could pave the way to becoming the new Tumblr. So far, only 700 users were in the beta phase of Pillowfort, so their development team (of three people) could handle the project without problems.
And although the team says that Pillowfort was not designed to be Tumblr, but an alternative, the name of the platform is being heard more and more.
