Facebook Users Complained Too Much About Their Photos

Facebook Users Complained Too Much About Their Photos

To quell the clamor for users to have more control over their photos uploaded by others, Facebook first allowed for users to flag the site’s terms of use. But with 250 million photos uploaded per day, Facebook realized most of the flags weren’t violations of nudity or violence but instead people left unsatisfied with their appearance.

And so, in August, the site changed its policy, replacing flags with options to message the uploader such complaints as, “I don’t like this photo of me.” According to AllThingsD, Facebook has now confirmed that any photos deemed offensive are taken down. And those deemed offensive to your vanity are left in the hands of the uploader.
