The “New” Facebook
Yesterday, I was accosted by a nude drawing of a younger man in all his ‘glory’ on Facebook. It had been ‘suggested’ for me. What!? I immediately complained that it broke their rules because it showed adult nudity featuring genitalia. I got this in response:
Thanks for letting us know about this. The photo was reviewed, and although it doesn’t go against one of our specific Community Standards, you did the right thing by letting us know about it. We understand that it may still be offensive or distasteful to you, so we want to help you see less of things like it in the future.
From the list above, you can block Alexis Vera Art directly, or you may be able to unfriend or unfollow them. We also recommend visiting the Help Centre to learn more about how to control what you see in your News Feed. If you find that a person, group or Page consistently posts things you don’t want to see, you may want to limit how often you see their posts or remove them from your Facebook experience.
We know that these options may not apply to every situation, so please let us know if you see something else you think that we should take a look at. You can also learn more about our specific standards on nudity and the kinds of images allowed on Facebook.
I did not initiate any connection to the Alexis Vera Art page directly, so this is their problem. I wonder how much they got to ‘publicize’ the image. Facebook has become its own worst enemy, and I am tempted to completely stop using it as a platform for any and all of my opinions and insights.
