Photos showing women's nipples, regardless of the context, were previously banned from the social media website. Now, the social media giant has ordered its moderators to consider the context of a photo or image, meaning non-sexual photos including female nipples, such as nursing mothers or women with mastectomies, will be allowed on the website. To test the new rules, US parenting blogger Paala Secor posted a tender photo of her breastfeeding to her 4, Facebook followers, in which her nipple was exposed.
The social media platform has updated its anti-nudity policy to allow photos of breastfeeding and post-mastectomy scars.

The photo-sharing social network clarified its community guidelines this week, explaining exactly what kind of nudity is banned and what is allowed. Images that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks are banned. So are photos of female breasts, if they include the nipple -- except for pictures of breastfeeding or post-mastectomy scarring.
