What do you think when you see the above photograph (of Zack Horton, taken by FuriousFotog)?
Yes. He is hot, isn’t he?
Could you imagine Facebook banning FuriousFotog for uploading it?
Well they have.
And it’s not the first time.
We are not aware of what specific reasons there are the bans. Though we know of Facebook users who have made it their raison d’etre to actively seek out and report artistic male nudity on ideological and religious grounds. American puritanism has always been a mass of contradictions that belies rational explanation. It only takes a cursory scan of any Facebook newsfeed to see the hypocrisy of this.
More seriously, Facebook has created a platform where the self-employed are actively invited to easily and effectively promote their businesses. And now Facebook is causing real financial harm to photographers through these bans.
