This morning interesting news surfaced that Instagram had banned the use of “EDM” as a hashtag on their social media app. Although their reasoning for blocking the word is vague, the popular photo sharing platform stated that they:
“will block certain hashtags when they are consistently being used to share images and videos that violate our Community Guidelines.”
Whether or not there was a specific event that sparked this is unclear, but it seems like the hashtag was frequently connected to drugs, nudity, and other inappropriate content. Did instagram go too far banning the use of “#EDM”? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
