Social media site Tumblr announced that it will employ artificial intelligence to track down and remove pornographic posts that violate a new policy on adult content.

The announcement triggered a wave of criticism from users and questions about the automated software that will flag potential violations.

Coming up on Tech Tuesday, Tumblr’s porn ban, mental health and social media use, and more.
