From Instaporn to Handbra, Instagram’s Sex Crazed Users Don’t Stop

on September 4, 2012 | Comments (0)

Yesterday we reported how a new fad hit Instagram – sexually suggestive photos of users under the hashtag #instaporn. Instagram quickly blocked the hashtag but there were still a few misspells under instapron.

Now we are seeing numerous users upload to a new hashtag #handbra – ie using your hand as a bra. So far over 58,000 photos have been uploaded as handbra – and many new photos are being added on an hourly basis.

Is this just a fad Instagram users are going through? Or will this be a more long term problem facing the site?

Considering there are a large number of users from 13-17 years of age, this is a delicate issue the Instagram team faces.
