New Rules For Facebook…Leaked

Facebook will start to challenge our 1st Amendment Rights with 10 rules to censorship. What ever happen to basic common sense? Isn't there an option to tag a post as inappropriate? By opening Pandora's box, our basic liberty and freedom will be further tested. If something is offensive, report it. We don't have to re-create the wheel. Thus, to the habitual violators, your post will be red flagged and a serious penalty will be enforced.

( Facebook’s internal content guideline was leaked yesterday, that’s what they use to figure out which posts aren’t appropriate and should be deleted. We’ve scored the information of what they will and won’t censor…

#1.) Foreplay like kissing and GROPING will NOT be censored. Even, “for same-sex individuals.” But actual sexual activity WILL be censored, obviously.

#2.) Photos that show a side-by-side comparison between a person and an animal WILL be censored.

#3.) Photoshopped images MIGHT be censored. If the Photoshopping portrays the person in a negative light, the photo will be removed. But if the Photoshopping portrays the person in a positive or neutral way, the photo can stay.

#4.) Images of drunk or unconscious people with stuff drawn on their face WILL be censored. Which is a surprise, because I see these all the time.

#5.) Graphic photos of dead animals WILL be censored. Unless the photos are in the context of food prep or, “hunting as it occurs in nature,” like a lion eating a zebra or something.

#6.) Works of art showing nudity WILL NOT be censored. But cartoon nudity will be removed.

#7.) Adult love toys MIGHT be censored. If they’re in the context of sexual activity, they’re gone. If you’re just, like, holding a vibrating toy, you’re clear.

#8.) Bodily fluids WILL NOT be censored. Vomit, snot, earwax, and anything in the toilet are all probably clear. But not if you post a photo of someone in the act of actually releasing bodily fluids.

#9.) Photos of poaching endangered animals WILL be censored, and will be reported.

#10.) And finally, photos of, “blatant depiction of camel toes and moose knuckles” WILL be censored.
