With the latest update to Lightroom Mobile there is now a social feature that allows you to see photos from other users around the world. It was leading off with nude photos classified as 'fashion'. As a dad with small children this is not a good feature. There doesn't seem to be a way to turn off the social feature without uninstalling the app entirely. This isn't a good update for families. Please build in a way to turn off this feature.

As we embark on community-based interactions this is exactly the feedback we want.  We know that globally there’s a wide range of acceptable content and we attempt to moderate the content without limiting artistic expression.   We have updated the mobile app login to require 13 or older participants and we have a robust moderation program and report abuse system to eliminate inappropriate content.   Ultimately our goal is to create an exchange between individuals passionate about photography and we want to create an environment where customers feel safe and supported.  Content appropriateness is an area we’ll continue to focus on. 

Thanks for your feedback and please keep it coming.  We're absolutely listening.
