Facebook Redefines Their Policy On Nudity & Hate Speech...

I think we all at one time or another have had one of our photos reported or know someone who has. When someone reports a photo on your personal account Facebook alerts you to it right away and gives you the option to delete your photo before they review it. I know many who just end up deleting the photo even though they know it's allowed. Why delete it? Well, while Facebook says they allow things such as breastfeeding photos there have been numerous cases where Facebook still ends up removing them and handing out bans, unpublishing pages. and in some cases permanently removing them. 

I myself have had numerous breastfeeding photos removed off my support page "Breastfeeding Mama Talk" I have gotten quite a few bans, and have had a few groups removed. One of the groups had almost 40,000 mamas in it and it caused quite the strain on my organization. Many mamas waking up not knowing why they were removed. It's sad that things Facebook says it allows still gets you in trouble for posting. The only way I have been able to settle my unjust removals and bans was by alerting the media. you can check out my news segments below for all the details and proof Facebook does in fact remove breastfeeding photos when they say they allow them. They also say they allow freedom of speech, but I had a post meant to spark discussion about formula advertisement having to do the same amount of breastfeeding advertisement as they do formula. Apparently that offended quite a few people & Facebook removed it and tried to ban me for 30 days. Luckily Fox 40 helped me out again. You can see all the details linked below.

Well Facebook is at it again and they have "redefined" their policy on nudity and hate speech. I say maybe so many people are confused because even though Facebook says it allows something people still get punished for posting said things. Then pictures like Kim K's ass is free to be seen all over Facebook!

Facebook's detailed update on it's community standards  for nudity now states-

"We remove photographs of people displaying genitals or focusing in on fully exposed buttocks. We also restrict some images of female breasts if they include the nipple, but we always allow photos of women actively engaged in breastfeeding or showing breasts with post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures. Restrictions on the display of both nudity and sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless the content is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes. Explicit images of sexual intercourse are prohibited. Descriptions of sexual acts that go into vivid detail may also be removed."

Do you think that by Facebook redefining their policies it will change anything? Do you think people will stop reporting what Facebook clearly says is allowed? I'm skeptical to say the least.
