Hi all, wasnt sure where to post this, but thought it might fit in here...

facebook has plenty of dirt to be dug up .... have a read of this.


A secret list curated by social network giant Facebook was published online recently after an employee for one of the company’s third-world contractors, upset at his poor working conditions and meager wage, decided to fight back.

Your quoted text is all that it is needed to sweep this under the rug.
Just another disgruntled worker.

what's bizarre about any of those things?
It seems pretty normal to me that those things would be censored.
ATS censors all of those things, plus a lot more.

wow. There is some very specific censorship of Turkey/Kurdistan related material. "Burning Turkish flags"?
"Maps of Kurdistan (Turkey)"? wierd.


Amine Derkaoui, the 21-year-old Moroccan who leaked the document, claimed he was hired by a firm Facebook uses to outsource content policing, only to be paid $1 an hour for his efforts.


The "Abuse Standards Violations" document www.rawstory.com... was scanned here.

What gets me is you can't show tastefully done breastfeeding pictures...I personally wouldn't post any on facebook but I used to do it in public (in my defense I wasn't gonna make a little newborn, who refused bottle nipples with a burning passion, suffer while I grocery shopped nor would I spend about 45 min in the bathroom stall listening to someone poop) Most of the time spent breastfeeding you don't see nipple...no worse than cleavage really and theres A LOT of cleavage on facebook. Mostly underage at that sadly. Some people actually just have close friends and family and I consider breastfeeding to be a bonding moment that some families may want to share. I never thought I'd be that person but when I would do it with my child she used to rest her hand middle finger out...I thought it was funny/cute so ya I would show family members. I happen to be near the family but if there was a distance between us I may have wanted to show them that. New parents want to show everyone everything the find cute anyway. At least I only showed the family in this case but I could see where someone could feel compelled to share with EVERYONE.
Plus breastfeeding is a stigma to some people meaning those brave enough to give their kids the best may need support or tips, a group of facebook would be handy for those who don't attend a program like WIC, which isn't just for poor people BTW they really help with breastfeeding tips and tricks Believe it or not it's not always as easy as stick a nipple in their mouth. Especially if you need them to accept bottle nipples along with your own. Or you may not produce enough and the little one's weight may need to be watched.

Sorry to go on a rant like that but It's been building ever since I read an article on it, I think it's a silly thing to ban when you can do it in public (within reason)

Much like ATS Facebook has a right to censor whatever they like.

Aside from all the stuff that they are supposedly censoring, it doesn't appear to me that they are following their "Bible". Accoriding to the leak, they are supposed to be censoring anything related to bullying. Why, then, have so many children and adults committed suicide and crimes against their aggressors because they were bullied on Failbook?

I must be getting slow minded... I'm sure somebody here said something along the lines of Holocaust denial is listed as censored... can't find the comment now. Anyway, it's not. Apparently it is to be escalated if it focuses on hate speech, at which stage it's presumably subject to to some decision making process.

I don't trust Facebook and don't use it... or go near it. I can't see anything overly unusual in this particular revelation though... it's the sort of careful avoidance of legal accountability that you'd expect in that sort of company. They’re balancing the contentment of their users with their desire to avoid accountability.

There is some very specific censorship of Turkey/Kurdistan related material. "Burning Turkish flags"?
"Maps of Kurdistan (Turkey)"?

This is simply to permit Facebook to operate in Turkey. Kurdistan is not a country; it is a politically defined 'Kurdish homeland' that lies partly in Turkey but also in Iran and Iraq. It has no international legitimacy. There may be some implications in international law. Note that 'escalation' means some human being probably has to make a decision on each individual case; in other words, no blanket censorship. It's a concession, not a tightening-up.

The rules seem perfectly acceptable, indeed sensible, to me.
to Facebook.
