Nudity on FaceBook

For the second time in less than a week, reports of Facebook eliminating photos it deems "profane" or "demeaning" have individuals slamming the social media titan.
On Monday, the Daily Mail reported that Facebook got rid of a photo of a woman sitting in a bathtub with her elbows leaning on the sides of the tub. Facebook mentioned the image breached the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which says: "You will not upload material that: is hate speech, threatening, or adult; incites physical violence; or includes nudity or gratuitous or graphic physical violence.".
According to Facebook, it will get rid of images "if they consist of nudity, substance abuse or other profane content. If the photo attacks an additional specific or team, it will be gotten rid of too.".
The photo was published by the web publication Concepts of the Deep Understanding of Things as a test of Facebook's policy of erasing obscene images. Within 24 hours of the publishing, Facebook erased the picture because it thought the elbows were really busts according to Gawker.
Theories published on it's Facebook page: ""So, below's last evening's FB alertness test outcomes: FB mediators can't inform an elbow from a dangerous, unclean, extraordinary and violent female breast.
