Facebook cannot tell an elbow from a breast

Look again at that photo. Yes, we know, the first thing you think you see is a breast or a nipple. But look again. It's very clearly an elbow.

You looked closely. Facebook, however, didn't.

Last week a website called "Theories of The Deep Understandings of Things" came across the photo and decided to test Facebook.

"We post lots of art and also funny stuff on our Facebook page. Some of them, naturally, have some skin -- art and the non-art. We have discovered that Facebook standards are pretty much Bible-esque," the CEO of "Theories of The Deep Understandings of Things" told ABC News. He said he preferred not to reveal his name.
