The Swiss daily Tribune de Geneve said Friday it had its Facebook account blocked by the social networking giant after publishing an explicit image of a woman’s genitals.

In a bid to illustrate an article on cosmetic surgery, the newspaper ran an image taken from Gustave Courbet’s 1886 oil painting “The Origin Of The World”, which shows a reclining nude.

The newspaper, which described the article as “very serious”, said that the image was deleted by Facebook only hours after it was published, and that the Californian firm had carried out online checks of the daily’s IT administrators.

I have a strong affinity for the sciences which led me to create my sites. My compulsion for the past decade has been reviewing literally every peer-reviewed research article. Which can easily be validated by following my posts. To me, science is where the real news is, as it will mold our destiny beyond that of politics or economics. 😉 Please feel free to e-mail: 161803p314159@gmail.com
