Facebook Removes Picture of Woman's Elbow, Mistaking it for Breast Nipple

| by Michael Allen

Facebook recently removed this picture of a woman showing her elbow, which was mistakenly thought to be her nipple by the social media's censors.

The Web-zine 'Theories of the Deep Understanding of Things' uploaded this picture to its Facebook page to test how far Facebook goes with its terms and services.

Theories of the Deep Understanding of Things then 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. No questions were asked and the post is down. Imagine our surprise.”

This picture test was in reaction to protests over Facebook's policy of removing pictures of mothers breastfeeding their children, reports Mediaite.com.
