Facebook bans are the order of the day. Few are those who have not seen any of their publications censored for breaching the ethical code of the social network . However, it is the lack of Facebook when it comes to assessing publications that should be banned that has led to movements against the Mark Zuckerberg network.

This Friday, without going any further, tattoo artist Vicky Martin , specializing in recreating the nipple aerolas of women who have undergone a mastectomy as part of breast cancer treatment, led a protest at the doors of Facebook headquarters in London , where dozens of activists inflated a giant tit in protest of the platform's restrictions on nude images.

The Facebook page of this tattoo artist in which she shows her work and her clients was recently closed for violating the community rules of the platform that prohibit pornography and nudes. Although Vicky Martin tried to revoke Facebook's decision by not receiving an answer, he decided to call this curious protest by placing a huge false chest with the words "this is art!" .

"It's about us being able to prove that this is art. It's not pornographic at all, it's beautiful," Martin told the BBC. Hours after the protest at the gates of the London headquarters of Facebook, the social network lifted the suspension to the account of Vicky Martin claiming that it was an error of his algorithm, which mistakenly marked Martin's page.

And therein lies the main problem of the prohibitions and suspensions of Facebook, that whoever makes the decision is an algorithm, which causes the outrage of many of its users who do not understand certain decisions of the social network. Almost all social networks have an ethical code to moderate the publications of their users, but in the case of Facebook their list is the most extensive and with dozens of specifications that although it is true that they have been softened, they still do not fit with the publication reality.

So what is prohibited on Facebook? What will cause an account to be suspended? What is your demanding code of ethics? In June 2018, Facebook published its community rules for the first time. A document that included several updates and now cannot be consulted. "... That is why we have developed a set of Community Standards that describe what is and is not allowed on Facebook. Our standards apply worldwide to all types of content. They are designed to be comprehensive, " The document begins with the community standards.

As Facebook explains its policies are based on the contributions of the community and those of experts in fields such as technology and public safety, in addition to the following principles: security - "people need to feel safe to build a community"; voice - "our mission is to adopt diverse points of view" -; equity - "our community is global and diverse" -.

"Everyone on Facebook plays an important role in keeping the platform safe and respectful (...) We give people the option to block, unfollow or hide (...) The consequences of violating our Community Standards vary depending on the severity of the violation and the history of a person on the platform. " That is, Facebook warns you once, but does not forgive the second.

1. Violence and criminal behavior

"Our goal is to avoid possible real-world damage that may be related to Facebook content. We understand that people commonly express disdain or disagreement by threatening or calling violence in a funny and not serious way.
