Facebook is a social networking site intended for friends to connect with other friends. This is why I was mortified when I saw a gruesome and bloody photo of a stabbed murdered woman as part of a humorous meme with the words "That will teach you to not wash dishes. Now get back to the kitchen." The photo can be viewed at this link but be warned it is highly disturbing https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=538981649468650&set=a.464140173619465.111291.464136693619813&type=1&theater¬if_t=photo_reply
While I am not against free speech (even if it is hateful because everyone has their own opinion) this photo of a murder victim is against Facebook's terms and conditions but after numerous reports from several different Facebook users complaining that this image be removed, the same automatic message is sent, stating "Thank you for your report. We carefully reviewed the photo you reported, but found it doesn't violate our community standard on graphic violence so we didn't remove it." However, their terms specifically state "Sharing any graphic content for sadistic pleasure is prohibited." If someone on a user's friend list clicks "like" on the photo, it will automatically show on their page and they will have no choice but to see it, which is what happened with me. This woman was someone's daughter, mother, wife, sister and her murder should not be portrayed as a joke especially on a site where it can easily be viewed by millions of people including children. Help me tell Facebook to remove this graphic and violent photo!
