Facebook In Discussions About Censorship Protocols Following Nude Protest

Facebook In Discussions About Censorship Protocols Following Nude Protest

Last week we covered the #WeTheNipple protest that took place outside the Facebook offices in New York.

With only giant photos of male nipples being used to cover up, 125 people stripped down in front of the offices in protest of Facebook’s Community Guidelines, which currently prohibit photos of female nipples.

It particularly aimed to highlight how these policies impact artists.

And the nude protest might have been worth it, with it now being revealed Facebook has agreed to meet with one of the groups behind the protest, the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC).

“The National Coalition Against Censorship is excited to announce that Facebook’s policy team has committed to convening a group of stakeholders including artists, art educators, museum curators, activists, as well as Facebook employees, to examine how to better serve artists, including considering a new approach to nudity guidelines,” the NCAC said in a statement.

“Participants will discuss the issue of nude photographic art and the harm done to artists, provide insights into the challenges Facebook has faced in developing its nudity policies, and explore ideas for a path forward.”

Facebook has indicated it wants to learn more about the NCAC’s concerns.

“Our conversations with the National Coalition Against Censorship preceded last weekend’s demonstration, and will continue on long after,” a spokesperson said.

“It’s important for us to hear directly from different communities who use Facebook and Instagram.”
