Double standard in Facebook policy
Please pass this on within Cafemom and on Facebook! Let's make a change!
While everyone should be able to express themselves on FB freely, the double standard can simply not be ignored. The photo on the left was removed and resulted in a suspension from Facebook. The p
hoto on the right was not removed and was reported by multiple users. Also note - the photo on the right is posted on Facebook *without* the black bars and she is wearing nothing underneath. Now here is the kicker - the response you get from Facebook:
"Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and imposes limitations on the display of nudity. At the same time, we aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo's David or family photos of a child breastfeeding."
This statement above is their official stance on Nudity on Facebook. Now explain to me how the photo on the left results in a suspension, when it is clearly stated in the community standards that Facebook supports the sharing of breastfeeding photos?
Please, share this in your status. Lets take a step towards better standards for women and breastfeeding mothers. And a step towards making Facebook be honest about their intentions. Let's stop this double standard.
