Facebook got a lot of unexpected visitors at its offices around the world Feb. 6, including several dozen at Menlo Park headquarters.
Unlike most visitors, these people were not impressed with the social networking giant. Why? They're nursing mothers angry at how Facebook chooses to block some photos of breastfeeding babies.
Emma Kwasnica, a mother in British Columbia, inspired the nurse-ins after protesting the way Facebook tagged some of her photos as inappropriate and temporarily froze her account, according to posts on Facebook.
While news accounts report Facebook as saying its policy is to delete photos displaying nudity -- such as a shot of a bare breast with no baby attached -- protesters commented that they think posting photos of breastfeeding on their pages helps convey that the activity is a normal, healthy part of life rather than something to be ashamed of.
