Breastfeeding Mom Wronged By Facebook
What does Mark Zuckerberg have against breastfeeding moms? Dave reported this morning a Sacramento mom’s Facebook Page was locked down for 24 hours by the social media giant. This isn’t the first time a breastfeeding support page was taken down by Facebook. But should it have been?
The story from the Huffington Post explains “Kristy Kemp, Breastfeeding Advocate, Outraged When Nursing Photos Were Removed From Facebook”
“It’s not right. I’m trying to do good for mothers and I’m getting kicked off for posting pictures of the most beautiful act a mother can do her for kid. It’s not right,” Kemp said.
Facebook had this to say to HuffPost:
“We agree that breastfeeding is natural and we are very glad to know that it is important for mothers, including the many mothers who work at Facebook, to share their experience with others on the site. The vast majority of breastfeeding photos are compliant with our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities and Facebook takes no action on such content. However, photos which contain a fully exposed breast, do violate our terms and may be removed if they are reported to us. These policies are based on the same standards that apply to television and print media. It is important to note that photos upon which we act are almost exclusively brought to our attention by other users who complain about them being shared on Facebook.”
