Instagram Reinstates EDM Hashtag

Instagram Reinstates EDM Hashtag

Yesterday it was announced #EDM was blacklisted by Instagram because “it was violating community guidelines.” Their reasoning was non-specific but pointed a heavy finger at pictures involving drug use or nudity. Instagram previously banned  “#curvy,” which “was being used to share content that violates our guidelines around nudity.”

Now after catching the attention of Time and Billboard, Instagram has made the decision to reinstate the #EDM hashtag.  However only a select number of these images are available to be viewed online as “Recent posts from #edm are temporarily hidden because of some abuse we’ve seen.”

So go ahead EDM Nation, hashtag your EDM heart out, just be carful of the content you are posting.
