facebook relents its OK, dolls can come back

July 13, 2010

In a follow-up I did to a previous  story painting Facebook the bad guys easy as 123 illustrating  how easy it is to throw mud at Facebook, and detailing the concerns that one woman had over their acceptable user policy and the posting of images that they deem inappropriate. Well it appears that Facebook has relented and admit that they were wrong as the  Melbourne Age is reporting  details  here .

The social networking site admitted this morning that it made a “mistake” in removing Victoria Buckley’s photos, after last week sending her several warning notices for publishing “inappropriate content” and erasing both censored and uncensored versions of the image from Facebook. “We’ve investigated this further and determined that we made a mistake in removing these photos,” Facebook said in a statement. “Our User Operations team reviews thousands of reported photos a day and may occasionally remove something that doesn’t actually violate our policies. This is what happened here. “And while we believe the doll would benefit from clothing to protect her fair skin, we apologise for the mistake and encourage Victoria Buckley Jewellery to upload these photos again if they so choose.” Facebook said “technical reasons” prevented it from restoring the photos on its own.

So there you have it Facebook have realized the error of their ways and all is right with the world. I hope Victoria is pleased with the outcome.
