William Sorensen January 6, 2014 at 12:30 am Facebook fail Jake Van Epps January 6, 2014 at 12:30 am G+ baby… It knows what art is Camiel Hirschberg January 6, 2014 at 12:30 am Why? Reports? Francis Xavier January 6, 2014 at 12:30 am Ridiculous. Facebook is really terrible and they keep getting worse. Robert Rowe January 6, 2014 at 12:30 am Ugh. Does that mess up your Instagram, too, then? Veronica Medina January 6, 2014 at 12:30 am I can guarantee your work is much more appreciated here anyway! I deactivated my fb 2 months ago and have no desire to go back! Stuart Duff January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am That's pretty lame and a major reason why I'll never use the platform again for anything not even a token presence for my Photography work. Bunch of ass. Bobbi Jo Woods January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am What? Unpublished? Just like that? No warning? 🙁 Marcelo Valente January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Facebook sucks Christopher Lira January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Wow #MarkZuckerbergIsaDick Mikko Tyllinen January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am unbelievable someone's just don't understand Art CROME January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Pbfft. What a jerk. Paul Roustan January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am +Robert Rowe hopefully not, because I actually like instagram. But one of my body paint buds was removed from there too. So it's probably only a matter of time. +Bobbi Jo Woods I've been warned many times, and I've made proper adjustments censoring my images. But I've even had many images flagged that had no nudity. Of course their review process is non existent. So there was nothing I can do really besides not have an account to begin with. Bobbi Jo Woods January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am 🙁 Arvind Gautam January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am +Paul Roustan we love you more here anyway! Bobbi Jo Woods January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am I'm sorry, +Paul Roustan Richard Maglaughlin January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Booooo. Laura Dochtermann January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Whaaat? That's so lame. What the hell Facebook? I left 7 years ago and haven't looked back. Aaron Wood January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am It's not just Facebook. People have had many images taken down and accounts suspended here on G+. Usually because people reported them. Sometimes for no reasons. This really does suck though, +Paul Roustan. Shells Bells January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Such a crock. Sorry to hear that Paul. Alex Wilson January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Surprised it lasted this long. To me, FB has always seemed heavy handed. But that me just be me. At any rate, I am happy that you will have more time to spoil us here. Antonio Borunda January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Well another reason why I like Google Plus. Steven Vargas January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Sorry dude but it sounds like you werent digging it so maybe its for the best… Calvin Henderson January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am Well brother… continue to work your craft. Stay awesome Bruce Goren January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am "Unpublished" — is that even correct usage? I'd think "De-published" , "Blocked", "Banned", "Censored" or simply "Removed From Public View" would be better grammar and more accurate. On the Internet, nothing can be truly "Unpublished", you can not un-ring the bell as they say in legal circles, once it's out there, it's always somewhere. Alexa Krueger January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am +Bruce Goren I believe censored is the proper word. +Paul Roustan We still ♡ your work. Paul Roustan January 6, 2014 at 1:29 am I hear ya, +Aaron Wood. But at least the g+ appeal process can work here. It stinks when I have an image that gets flagged but actually abides by the terms and there's nothing I can do about it. I've been wanting to drop Facebook anyway for a while since the visibility continues to diminish unless you 'boost' your posts. I just managed to continue to generate a lot of traffic to my website posting a censored image with a link to the uncensored versions. It's so strange how Facebook chooses to drive away businesses. Stuart Duff January 6, 2014 at 2:29 am FB doesn't want peoples business unless they are advertisers. Data mine the users, and ignore anyone else that doesn't pay for priority. Kyle Flicker January 6, 2014 at 2:29 am +Paul Roustan why is fb hating on your art? everyone loves painted bewbz! Jason Bouwmeester January 6, 2014 at 3:31 am Stupid. QuHarrison Terry January 6, 2014 at 3:31 am Sorry bro Mario Pacchiarotti January 6, 2014 at 10:36 am You all blame Facebook (and I don't love them too), but this isn't a FB fail, this is USA culture fail. A culture where an exposed nipple is banned, and a full nude with dutch tape in the correct places is fine. Blame yourself Guilherme Saba January 6, 2014 at 11:30 am FB sucks Craig Reeves January 6, 2014 at 4:30 pm G+ all day baby.. Adrian Smith January 6, 2014 at 5:31 pm Mario, I agreed with you until you said "blame yourself". Way to generalize. You do get that not everyone in a given country has the same culture and views, right? Dave Pruett January 6, 2014 at 7:32 pm I agree that G+ is the way to go. Eric Rice January 6, 2014 at 7:32 pm Bring it back home to your own site and make all the social networks secondary. We lost sight of that over time. Paul Roustan January 6, 2014 at 7:32 pm +Eric Rice No doubt! Preaching to the choir on that one. My website has always been my #1 priority. Been fixing all my networks all day removing facebook page links and crap. And just finished setting my facebook profile to direct all traffic directly to my website 🙂 Just have to wait to be removed from my facebook ban to finalize some facebook dealies… I wish I could change my fb profile url to my now defunct fb page url. Mario Pacchiarotti January 6, 2014 at 8:34 pm +Adrian Smith no, obviously not all the people have same ideas. What I mean is you should fight against this kind of mentality. When a major provider like FB acts like that, you can bet they think an overwhelming majority of its customers share that position. Wendy Kreiser January 6, 2014 at 11:31 pm Sorry! If it's tasteful art, nudity shouldn't be an issue. Especially when fully painted. Stupid FB. Matthias Urlichs January 7, 2014 at 8:41 am +Mario Pacchiarotti Majority, no. Overwhelming, unfortunately yes. There are a whole lot of bigoted narrow-minded but well-organized people out there who can really make your life hell if you don't abide by their rules. The "moral majority" is neither, but FB still panders to them. You're using facebook? You're part of the problem. Tell them your policy is ugly and targets the wrong mindset, and quit using them. Jenny Marquis January 7, 2014 at 10:29 am Fed up of fb banning and blocking amazing art they are hypocrites giving air to idiots who post violence and cruelty and banning amazing art with no means of the artist having any recourse or opportunity to discuss the reason why they were banned/blocked Mario Pacchiarotti January 7, 2014 at 12:29 pm +Wendy Kreiser nudity should never be a problem. Some use of nudity, some use of people body, could be a problem, but plain nudity shouldn't.
