Facebook mistakes elbow for breast
What's the difference between an elbow and a breast? For Facebook, not much.
The social network recently removed a misleading photo of a woman in a bathtub because it mistook her elbow for a bare breast, according to "Theories of the deep understanding of things".
The Facebook page posted the photo as a way to test Facebook's terms of service, which prohibits the posting of "pornographic" content.
"FB moderators can't tell an elbow from a dangerous, filthy, uncanny and violent female breast," the page said.
"No questions were asked and the post is down."
After realising its blunder, Facebook later restored the photo. In a statement, the company told gossip blog Gawker, "We made a mistake and sent an apology to the original poster."
