Flickr Introduces Filters, Attacks Porn
Flickr has just introduced filters into its system as a measure to seriously come down on porn.

The entire system is bundled with the safety level (safe, moderate, restricted) and Content Type (photo, art/illustration, screenshot). So you could set your current preference and also tell flickr what type of content (safe screenshots for ex.) you upload. The search filters are also updated and you can now turn them on and off while browsing. Users can now also hide their photo streams from others and third party access via API. Furthermore the “Flag this Photo” feature now allows you to flag any thing that might be offensive, the Organizr has been upgraded accordingly.

The features will provide improved means to users and the community in general to safeguard and police the system from abusive and adult content. This might also be good for the upcoming launch of Flickr in China.

You might not see photos like the ones below for long on flickr.
