Well even though the policy seems illogical, legally you can not do anything since we already accept facebook's privacy policies!

We should be more careful!

This challenge is irritating to the bankers and other creditors. The credit intermediation process has become dysfunctional, and as stocks, the S & P 500 has become volatile historically and hysterically, which closed today about 50 percent of its peak in free dating online. British stocks are off 40 percent during the same period, Germany's DAX has dropped 49 percent, the Hang Seng index has fallen by 55 percent and Japan's Nikkei Dow is down 57 percent.

This is humbling in more ways than one. Yesterday morning when I got on the plane to fly up here, I turned to Nancy and said, "In your wildest dreams did you ever think of me following in the footsteps of Mikhail Gorbachev, George HW Bush, David Rockefeller and Ban Ki -moon to give the Gordon Conference at the Kennedy School? "And she replied:" I hate to disappoint you, Richard, but after 35 years of marriage, which rarely appears in my wildest dreams.

I recommend trying www.socialkik.com to buy Facebook fans, they have been recommended by a lot of bloggers and they can both be trusted. Socialkik can actually add fans to your Facebook page without logging into your Facebook profile, so I guess they send out thousands of suggestions to people in their network until they get 1K, 2K, 5K, 10K or 100K of Facebook fans to join your page, which is totally fine with Facebook terms of use.

2007-11-16T04:57:00.000-05:00

Hey, here's a thought that doesn't seem much explored. Facebook is a private, commercial entity that is concerned primarily with its economic viability. If they want to yank something from their site (which is providing you with a free service), why shouldn't they? Nobody's saying you have to use facebook for anything, nor are we saying that you can't withdraw your support from facebook. I think we all know that our society has strange double standards, but that's life, it's unfair and it sucks. Facebook has essentially no explaining to do as some seem to be arguing here, rather they are defining (through action) the terms of their policy, which is phrased in a manner which allows them to do so.

I'm a true believer in freedom of speech and expression, and I actually would argue to everyone here that if you want to make the claim that breast-feeding pictures aren't offensive or pornographic, you shouldn't frame the argument by saying "look at these pro-ana groups that they should get rid of." Obviously, there are individuals who will find this material objectionable, a stronger argument (to me) is simply that facebook should encourage its users to be responsible for themselves and for the content of their pictures, groups, profiles, etc... Argue not for your cause, but for a change in the general conditions which will allow for more freedom in the exchange of information.

I found this entry from a post at centuryfille.blogspot.com.

While I would prefer not to witness an infant's feeding time, I actually practice the "look the other way or up at the sky" approach.

As many people have pointed out, it's nearly impossible for an entire breast to be visible in a feeding picture (I don't think a high angle shot would even do it), and such an image is not sexually suggestive.

Unfortunately, some folks might think that seeing any part of the human body that would otherwise be covered with undershirts or undershorts is inextricably tied to explicit sexuality.

Individuals who put up controversial or "fishy" pictures that might offend some but not others should at least be given the option to set the picture to private or be viewable only by friends.

If, on the other hand, a breastfeeding picture consisted of a child who is "too old" to be breastfeeding, what would the response be?

2007-09-22T15:37:00.000-04:00

I would like to see someone set up their own social networking site that allows breastfeeding photos. Surely there's room online for facebook/myspace competition. And perhaps that would make them take notice a little more.

Anyone want to crateit, I'm in!

2007-09-21T12:51:00.000-04:00

I have an account on Facebook and there are 2 ways to look at "major advertisers": the banner ads and the applications you can add to your profile.

Clicking around, I saw banners for Monster and Jobster, military.com, AT&T, Verizon, Ditech and Embassy Suites Hotels.

In doing a quick news search, Wal-Mart, GM, Pepsi and Reebok come up as majors; and Warner Bros., Amazon and Microsoft as companies that have applications.

On an application search (applications are widgets you add to your profile), I found Forbes, slide.com, buycostumes.com, Bravo TV, Yahoo, Columbia Records.

A lot of it seems to be other social-media-related entities, like iLike, going.com, last fm, etc.

2007-09-21T11:14:00.000-04:00

Do you know that there is an episode of Mr. Rogers where he shows different animals feeding their babies on Picture Picture? And the final shots are of human mothers breastfeeding babies. From what I recall, it was not discreet, either.

I'm trying to find which episode number that was.

But, you know, Mr. Rogers sets the benchmark for obscene, offensive behavior, so perhaps a bad comparison. Facebook? I let my one year old view it a few hours each morning before snack time.

2007-09-20T21:39:00.000-04:00

I like Izzy's point of boycotting Facebook's advertisers, along with letters/emails to each company telling them they are being boycotted and why. I don't have a Facebook account. Anybody know WHO their major advertisers are and would be willing to post them for all of us to see and boycott?

2007-09-20T19:21:00.000-04:00

One of my commenters said that there are a ton of anti-gay hate groups on Facebook, too.

While I may be a bit wrapped up in the exact definition of "fully exposed breast" (because it does matter) the bottom line is that Facebook will pick and choose what it thinks is good, bad, acceptable, not acceptable, obscene or not obscene.

That said, the fact that they deem pro-ana and anti-gay hate groups to be okay but not breastfeeding breasts that you can't even see speaks volumes about the kind of people we're dealing with here.

They won't take the high road. They don't even know what it is.

Take their money away from them and they might see things differently.

A think a boycott of all Facebook's advertisers might be most effective.

2007-09-20T19:03:00.000-04:00

Hey Facebook!

What about pro-cutting groups? Got any of those?

Controversial, just like pro-ana. Harmful, just like pro-ana.

2007-09-20T16:02:00.000-04:00

Beyond the "picture" debate, I find their lack of any response on the "pro-ana" groups is really, as far as my opinion's concerned, totally unacceptable. A "controversial topic"? Give me a break.

I don't think anorexia is a "controversial topic." In fact, I'm pretty sure that the jury's come back with a verdict on that one, no?

The fact that they're so dismissive of it is what angers me the most. "Oh, well, we don't really care about that at all," etc.

2007-09-20T13:08:00.000-04:00

Couldn't this be easily rectified by changing their policies from describing the percentage of a breast that may be shown to simply banning sexually explicit photos?

I think intent goes a long way here. Girls gone wild flashing boobs = sexually explicit. Mom breastfeeding = um, not really.

Maybe this is just another case of lawyers ruining everything. (Sorry Lawyer Mama!)

2007-09-20T12:36:00.000-04:00

I'm glad to see that the communications people at Facebook are so concerned and "responsive!" Is this policy a result of a company that's run by a bunch of young guys, or something more problematic about our culture and what it considers offensive when it comes to women's bodies?

I'm sure their lawyers drafted them some generic terms of service, but they're the ones interpreting them.

They're not going to care what we have to say about any of this until it hurts them in the wallet or their nonsensical interpretation sees the light of 60 Minutes.

2007-09-20T12:19:00.000-04:00

For anyone who is interested in seeing exactly WHAT Facebook considers obscene, pornographic et al, here is a link to one of the ACTUAL photos that was removed.

Sorry, but I see NO breast exposure whatsoever. In fact, you see more at the beach or on the cover Cosmo.

But see for yourself and then decide:

2007-09-20T10:57:00.000-04:00

hi - visiting from mothehood uncensored.

what. a. joke. there are thousands of photos on FB that violate their ToU. there are also many (if not thousands, too) groups that could be deemed "harmful" . . . but gawd! forbid a NIPPLE (gasp!) from a nursing mother been posted!!!

(i agree: a properly positioned nursing baby does not allow for there to be a fully exposed boob. i nursed 2 kids over a 4 year span and the only people who complained about it were my (now ex) in-laws - and they didn't know jack shite about nursing.

2007-09-20T10:49:00.000-04:00

Isn't anorexia a form of self-abuse? I would think that also falls under the "harmful or abusive" text in the terms of use.

This is disgusting. Especially considering there is nothing obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit about a baby nursing. The breast isn't even fully exposed!

I can't help but wonder if their vagueness is just a way to force people to go searching for more information on the debate, which means more clicks and more revenue for Facebook.
