“At first glance this picture of a naked woman reclining in a bathtub may seem rather risqué.
But it is in fact completely innocent. The only nudity visible is her shoulder and her elbow, although it is posed to appear inappropriate.
Yet that was enough for Facebook to censor it from their site.
The snap was uploaded by web magazine Theories of the Deep Understanding of Things to test how the social network’s terms of service deal with pictures that are misleading.
It posed the question of whether the photo-sharing website content policies are based on indecency or the mere appearance of indecency.
However, it didn’t take long for the social network to quickly take the photo down for violating the service’s terms.
The magazine wrote on its Facebook page: ‘So, here’s last night’s FB alertness test results: FB moderators can’t tell an elbow from a dangerous, filthy, uncanny and violent female breast.”*
Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola show us the optical illusion of a nude woman that was banned from facebook. Are our views on nudity or perception of nudity too much?
