Breastfeeding Photos on Facebook: Now Permitted Thanks to #FreeTheNipple Campaign!

by at .  Updated at .

Breastfeeding photos will now be allowed on your Facebook feed following considerable backlash and the #FreeTheNipple campaign designed to, well ...

The nipple has been freed. Enough said.

Facebook's Community Standards never outright banned breastfeeding photos, but they were often removed after being reported for "nudity or pornography."

Sometime within the past few weeks, however, Facebook quietly changed their policy to explicitly permit you to post breastfeeding pictures online.

The breastfeeding policy now reads as such in the company's Q&A:

Q: Does Facebook allow photos of mothers breastfeeding?

A: Yes. We agree that breastfeeding is natural and beautiful and we're glad to know that it's important for mothers to share their experiences with others on Facebook.

The vast majority of these photos are compliant with our policies.

Please note that the photos we review are almost exclusively brought to our attention by other Facebook members who complain about them being shared on Facebook.

The change comes after campaigning by #FreeTheNipple, which battles censoring of female nipples on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram.

Men are allowed to post similar pictures, the campaign notes.

In any case, go forth and share photos of this miracle of life, or rub it in that bitch Kelly from high school's face that you're happily married and still hot while she's all alone.
