Facebook Temporarily Shut Down French Museum
Well, normally, the rules of Facebook are quite precise. Naked people are asocial and therefore it's logical that they are not welcome in the world's biggest social network. And it doesn't matter that the picture is a piece of art by Laure Albin Guillot (1879-1962) and was posted on the museum's official FB-page. Nor is it relevant that this museum is in Paris, the city of love, and not in Salt Lake City, the city of mormons. And no, Facebook can not make an exception here even though just 4% of the more than 30.000 fans of the Jeu de Paume are based in the USA while the majority is based in the sexually-open France.
No matter if it's art. Naked people are a no-no. So Facebook shut down the museum's site and unbanned it only after the picture was removed and replaced by a censored version so that no one forgets about it.
