When it comes to posting photos, many photographers, myself included, have routinely complained, lamented, become frustrated with, shook their fists and screamed loudly at Facebook's mysterious and inconsistent enforcement of their TOS (Terms of Service). Well, that's what I used to do. But no more! I mean, first off, why bother? No one at Facebook is listening anyway, right?

Apparently, all it takes is one, self-appointed, morality cop to flag a photo and Facebook removes it with an accompanying dire warning and, sometimes, removal of photo uploading privileges for varying lengths of time. They even sometimes threaten to ban your entire account! Permanently! They don't, BTW, tell you which photo they've deleted (it becomes a mystery if you have many photos uploaded to your FB page) and they don't tell you why they've deleted it, leastwise, not specifically why. They simply say the offending photo violated their TOS. READ MORE?

I've come to the conclusion that facebook has some kind of automated robot in their system that deletes photos that are reported no matter how "G" rated they might be, which is why facebook doesn't seem to listen to logic concerning their own rules of posting photos. They should actually read their own rules before deleting photos.

I have found that in too many cases, if one is of Middle Eastern background you carry more weight with the infamous facebook police that if you are not. A friend with a middle eastern sounding name was able to get a false account (set up just to try) bounced off with no problem at all! Only one VERY "G" rated photo was posted. This friend reported it to be offensive... no one asked why it was or anything. The account was deleted for "security" reasons!

I had a very good friend's account bounced also for being a security risk. This friend was and still is serving with the United States Military in Afghanistan. What a joke! Someone in Military G-2 is a security risk to facebook.

But since it is a FREE service. There is no resource but to put up with it, or go elsewhere.
