Facebook Mistakes Elbow for a Woman's Breast

Censorship Behaviour was Tested. Facebook Failed.

Last week, we reported about Apple censoring apples and now we have a funny story about a website that tested how good the censorship on Facebook works. In order to do so, they uploaded the following picture on their Facebook page and when a user complained that the picture showed a naked woman, Facebook removed it less than 24 hours after it was put up and contacted the Facebook user responsible for uploading.

 Theories of the deep understanding of things

"So, Here's last night's FB alertness test results: FB moderators can't tell an elbow from a dangerous, filthy, uncanny and violent female breast, no questions were asked and the post is down. Imagine our surprise."

When other media such as Huffington Post and Daily Mail reported about this incident, Facebook took a closer look at the picture, which they finally released again. They also apologized to Theories.of.

It's unknown whether Facebook will introduce workshops for their censors in order to identify female breasts with a higher accuracy in the future.
