The Top Ten Toxic Social Network Websites for Artists

1 Deviantart DeviantArt is an online artwork, videography and photography community. The website was launched on August 7, 2000, by Angelo Sotira, Scott Jarkoff, Matthew Stephens and others.

Come on! It isn't that bad...

Come on! It isn't that bad!

Worst website ever. Just a pornography website where people get away with murder cause dA is just to busy to deal with it. I saw some traumatizing things that don't even have a mature content label... I mean guys, there are like 10 year olds. It disgusts me people do this knowing there are kinds... Plus commissions prices are just fleeces, people taking advantage of others to get them to pay for virtual money and core.

Filled with so much child, animal and incestuous porn. How that type of art isn't outlawed or moved to the Dark Web yet amazes me.

I'm no artist but even I wouldn't use this site at all (I am aware aware that there actually is some good art on here but they really need to ban certain fetish art of illegal sexual acts. Other wise they'll lose more and more artists).

2 Tumblr Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007, and owned by Oath Inc.

DeviantArt is disgusting, but Tumblr got someone death threats. - 445956

At least they banned NSFW. - IceFoxPlayz

3 Twitter Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, "tweets," restricted to 140 characters.
4 FurAffinity
6 Youtube

What? I get it is toxic at times but its not a website for artists

7 Instegram

I don't think instegram is really that toxic since it has a private fliter for family and friends. - EdgyDoll510

8 Wattpad

It's actually impressive how many fictional and real people they can sexualize. It's basically deviantart but with without the art. Just deviant.

Yup just people getting over protective of their oc’s and making really disturbing fanfics about the writer and some famous guy in a sexual situation or relationship. I’m not saying that it’s all like this, not at all actually, I’m just focusing on the more negative points. Alright it’s a place where writers from all genres congregate and this isn’t so bad but with many fandoms coming over with those people there are going to be the obsessive fan girls who have some obsession with BTS or really wanna shag sans the skeleton. I’m sorry but I just can’t bring myself to like this platform.
