Censorship, Social Media and Posting Naked Pictures of Your Kids Online

Why posting naked pictures of your kids on social media might require censorship

Social Media Censorship: Why Posting Naked Pictures of You Kids for Grandma Online is a Bad Idea

As someone who has had some experience with Social Media Censorship on Facebook, I can tell you, those pimple-faced billionaires don't mess around when it comes to protecting your child's online image. In their mind, if you're not going to do it they will be the knights in shining armour who will. And I guess you can't blame them. For one, they are trying to protect children from online sexual predators. And two, they are forcing you to follow the letter of the law (as they interpret it, at least).

Let's be frank (yes, I know that's not your name, it's not mine either), common sense often goes out the window when people are posting pictures of themselves, their friends, or their family on Facebook, or Google+, or Twitter, or Pinterest or Instagram.  Adults post pictures of themselves playing hooky from work and are surprised when they get fired. People are dumb. I know I am. I got banned from Facebook for posting a picture of a small Asian boy with a split in his pants showing his ass crack. Sure, this was from an actual clothing line in Japan that allowed children and adults to take a crap faster, but it went against Facebook's child protection rules. I also got banned for posting a picture men's underwear. Apparently, I'm told, if you enlarged (no pun intended) the image, you could see through the undergarment and clearly see the outline of the model's circumcised "sausage." This went against some other rules Facebook had, but so far I've tried to rule out homophobia and a distinct dislike for life drawing. The one picture I didn't get banned for was blocked (or skewed from view) so you just assumed a mom was giving her boyfriend a blowjob while giving her toddler a bottle with her other hand. It later turned out that she was sucking cake off her other kid's hand (there was no boyfriend), but it was enough to get people in a frenzy and reporting it to the powers that be based solely on what they assumed they saw. But even Facebook can't remove a picture based solely on what people think they see. You have to see it for it to be banned. Well, kind of...
