San Francisco: Facebook and Instagram have banned the sexual use of eggplant and peach emojis on their platforms under new community standards. The new community standards refer to “(commonly used) sexual emojis or emoji strings” as criteria that qualify as “Suggestive Elements”. According to adult industry news portal XBIZ, Facebook and Instagram are targeting sex workers with updated community standards. “The new language, under the guise of preventing ‘sexual solicitation’, restricts even further the posts that sex workers are allowed to share, making them even more exposed to targeted harassment campaigns by anti-porn crusaders,” the report mentioned on Tuesday. Among the new things that could get someone Instagram’s account flagged and/or removed are the eggplant or peach emoji in conjunction with any statement referring to obscene connotation or pictures with digital alterations and any mention of porn being available or any linking to pages offering adult material.
