Facebook and Instagram open up to breast-feeding and post-mastectomy photo

Facebook and Instagram open up to breast-feeding and post-mastectomy photo . Facebook has quietly reversed its controversial stances on breast-feeding and post-mastectomy photos – even ones showing nipples. . The social network, which has received protests on their very own site in response to their previous take-down policy for these photos, appears to have caved to an online campaign and changed its tune a couple weeks ago. Facebook-owned Instagram has loosened its policy too. . Here’s the new policy regarding photos of mothers breast-feeding: . Does Facebook allow photos of mothers breastfeeding? Yes. We agree that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful and we’re glad to know that it’s important for mothers to share their experiences with others on Facebook. The vast majority of these photos are compliant with our policies. Please note that the photos we review are almost exclusively brought to our attention by other Facebook members who complain about them being shared on Facebook.  . Here’s the new policy regarding post-mastectomy photos: . Does Facebook allow post-mastectomy photos? Yes. We agree that undergoing a mastectomy is a life-changing experience and that sharing photos can help raise awareness about breast cancer and support the men and women facing a diagnosis, undergoing treatment or living with the scars of cancer. The vast majority of these kinds of photos are compliant with our policies. .   What about Instagram? . Instagram has also loosened its stance on breast-feeding and post-mastectomy photos. . While archives of the site show Instagram’s old policies noted that photos including fully exposed breasts where the child was not actively engaged in nursing or breasts that were unaffected by surgery violated its Community...
