Facebook has a long standing policy on topless (female) photos and has no known plans to revise this policy. For the first time the social media network came back on a decision earlier made and reinstated a picture.
After Sharon Adams’ picture of her post-masectomy chest was moderated and removed as “sexual and abusive”, 900 people joined a protest group in support of Sharon Adams and breast cancer awareness. Facebook duly reinstated the picture and even offered Sharon Adams an apology:
Our user operations team reviews thousands of reported photos a day and may occasionally remove something-that doesn’t actually violate our policies. This is what happened here. We apologise.
Should Facebook generally allow its users to post the pictures they want, but request self-moderation first like Flickr does or should Facebook continue it’s general ban on breasts?
