Facebook Facepalm!

So I wake up this morning to find one of my perverted friends inviting me to this sick looking page on Facebook, where the owner and some people are sharing raunchy photographs of Indian housewives. I reported the page to Facebook mentioning that it contained nudity or pornography. I must say reporting something on Facebook is dead simple and while I was at it, I was also requested to go through the community standards on Facebook before completing the process. This was what their community standards had to say about nudity and pornography

Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.

This assured that the obscenity would be taken off in some time. But hey! I wouldn’t be posting this if all went fine would it? When I come back online on Facebook, they tell me:

Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the page you reported for containing nudity or pornography and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.

Note: If you have an issue with something on the Page, make sure you report the content (e.g. a photo), not the entire Page. That way, your report will be more accurately reviewed.

Yes, now I know what to do! I should go to the page and report each and every post for nudity and porn! Thank you Facebook! Facepalm!

P S : The page being Indian is a larger Facepalm!

The emperor strikes back, hard!

Just when you thought of moving to Google Plus because of Facebook’s new (and newer) features, which were getting hard to cope up with, Mark Zuckerberg did it again! Most of you must now have heard about the ‘Facebook Timeline’… If you haven’t heard about it yet, I suggest you click here… Its the new social networking utility that tells you everything you’ve done on Facebook and describes your activity!

It’ll release on the 3rd of October this year… But for the impatient ones, here’s the link.

The overall experience of the Timeline is overwhelming. Its an attempt to share your details and arrange them in a chronology from the day you were born. Events, People you met, places you’ve been to! And it’s definitely going to keep you from moving on to Google Plus. Must Try!
