Facebook doesn’t want you sharing photos of the following body parts

Facebook Image Sharing

Facebook has updated its Community Standards page, Mashable reports, in which it explains in detail what can and can’t be shared on its network when it comes to images and videos. The new Community Standards are significantly longer than before – the BBC says the new document is 2,500-word long – and cover nudity, hate speech, bullying and other aspects of Facebook sharing.

The company is “encouraging respectful behavior” and it says that it’ll only allow certain images when nudity is involved.

“We remove photographs of people displaying genitals or focusing in on fully exposed buttocks,” the company says. “We also restrict some images of female breasts if they include the nipple.”

Facebook takes a hard stance against “explicit images of sexual intercourse,” but also against “descriptions of sexual acts that go into vivid detail.”

There are some exceptions involved, including women “actively engaged in breastfeeding,” post-surgery, but also art depicting nude figures.

In addition to nudity, Facebook’s new Community Standards rules cover other sensitive areas related to sharing, including bullying, harassment, violence and hate speech. Facebook will also remove content that qualifies as hate speech or that is intended to shame third parties.

The new Community Standards page also has three other sections, including safety, privacy and security, and intellectual property – the full document can be found at this link.

Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
