Moms who breastfeed are not popular on Facebook.

Moms who breastfeed are not popular on Facebook. There have been many instances where moms who have posted pictures of themselves breastfeeding have had the pictures removed and have even had their Facebook accounts closed. How crazy is that?

In response to some of the controversy, Facebook states on their warnings and blocks page: 

We agree that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful, and we're very glad to know that it is important for mothers to share their experiences with others on Facebook. The vast majority of these photos are compliant with our policies, and we will not take action on them. 

Photos that show a fully exposed breast where the child is not actively engaged in nursing do violate Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. These policies are based on the same standards which apply to television and print media.
