Artistic Nudity banned from Social Media Networks
Boston’s Museum of Fine Art has been attempting to engage Facebook and Instagram in discussions around their community standards with no success. Images posted by the museum of abstract artwork that featured nude images were taken down by both Facebook and Instagram to the dismay of the museum.

“These images are so subtle and beautiful and so abstract,”said MFA photography curator Karen Haas. “They’re all about shapes—about turning the body into something that’s really confounding and difficult even to read as a body.”
