We thought this is too funny ...


How funny is this, and on point this is at the same time. Facebook remove a pic of a woman in bath tub mistaken her elbows as her boobs. See why we think this funny. Now we can understand how they got this all wrong because if you take a quick glance at the pics you would think the woman was exposing her nipples...  But wait there's more to the story the pic was posted to test face book’s terms of service and censorship policies. According to

"In the wake of recent breadfeeding photo controversies, the (NSFW) blog Theories of the deep understanding of things decided to test Facebook's terms of service and censorship policies by posting a photo of a bathing woman to its Facebook page.
The grainy photo features a blond woman in a bathtub flashing a single pink elbow, which could look like a breast at first glance. It was posted last Saturday with the caption, "Once again, testing Facebook alertness." Facebook moderators must have taken only a cursory look at the photo because they removed the post less than 24 hours later on Sunday.

"FB moderators can't tell an elbow from a dangerous, filthy, uncanny and violent female breast. No questions were asked the and the post is down. Imagine our surprise," TOTDUOT wrote after the post was taken down.
According to the Daily Mail, workers in Morocco and other countries are paid $1 an hour to moderate Facebook pages and any content that might violate its policies. When Facebook realized they had censored an elbow, they promptly reinstated the photo. They issued this apology to HuffPostUK: “This photo does not violate our content standards and we have already restored the photo. We made a mistake removing the picture and apologised to the page admin.”

Article 3, Section 7 of Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities states that users "will not post content that: is hate speech, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence."

Look like Facebook got their ish together because they passed 

the test...Lol, snap at the original pic below...
