The platform will indefinitely not support direct image and video postings. This is a measure to uphold the continued effort to repress inapproprations displayed in those forms. Instead, it will deploy the use of Imgur to host both images and videos. It is quick and simple and does not require an account for uploads.
Things to note:
- EXIF data/metadata is removed from all images upon upload. There is no setting available to retain the data.
- Posts uploaded without an account are anonymous and hidden. They cannot be searched and only those people with whom you share the URL will be able to see them.
- All images uploaded to Imgur are available via their direct URLs at any time, which means they can never be completely secret.
- There is no way to prevent viewers from downloading your images.
Simply insert the URL of the desired image/video you wish to share into the body of your topic post. Those who click will arrive at your image/video. The imgur app is free to download on both Android and IOS.
