SEATTLE -- A local mom is outraged after getting temporarily banned from Facebook over a photo she says is completely innocent.

The photo in question shows Lauren Ferrari's 5-year-old daughter pretending to nurse her 2-year-old sister.

Facebook says it violates the company's community standards, but Ferrari disagrees.

"It's not sexual and they were just pretending," she said. "What's obscene about breastfeeding?"

Ferrari didn't think much of it when she uploaded the photo of her two daughters for all her Facebook friends to see.

"When I posted it I said, 'She says she's nursing her baby,'" Ferrari said. "She didn't say, 'Mommy look, she's kissing my boobie.'"

Less than 24-hours later, the image was gone, with message from Facebook claiming Ferrari violated the site's policies.

"They did not say it was child pornography," she said. "They were not clear, they were really vague."

Stefanie Thomas of the Seattle Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children agrees the photo isn't child porn, but she said it's poor parenting on Ferrari's part. She points to the fact that there's no control over who sees the photo and whose hands it ends up in.

"There's no real way of actually getting wherever that image ends up down off the Internet. So that's something that this family, that these girls, are going to have to ultimately deal with," Thomas said.

After the photo was taken down, Ferrari learned she'd been banned from Facebook for seven days.

"I just wish someone would have actually talked to me and asked a question or something. I just felt it was very harsh," she said.

An official from Facebook said the company doesn't comment on its policies.
Slow news day...

mommy may be outraged, but her daughter(s) will be humiliated that photo even existed in the first place. at least now it'll only embarrass them if they look at the photos on the computer, rather than having all of mommy's cityville or sorority life friends seeing it too.

yes, we can call it over-sharing

this is the type of remark he might have made in a pub, and that would have been the end of it.

Now, with FB and Twitter, people can ruin their lives in an instant

I believe these young people are not much different than any of the other young people at previous Olympics. I do believe that if they did not have twitter or facebook accounts their lives would not be a mess right now.

I don't feel any sympathy for people who don't understand that espousing racist views on a mass public forum can carry consequences they might not like.

Dumb bass? She should do time for that too.

LOL' Facebook Post After DUI Accident Lands Woman in Jail
By Kevin Dolak | ABC News Blogs – Tue, Sep 18, 2012


A Kentucky woman's cavalier 'LOL" comment on Facebook about an alleged drunk driving accident that police believe she caused led a judge to send her to jail for two days and force her off the social networking site.

Paula Asher slammed into a car carrying four teenagers in Woodford County, Ky., in July and left the scene, police allege . Parents of the teens were upset to see a seemingly flip comment about the incident on Facebook after the fact and told the court about it, police told WLEX.

Asher received four charges stemming from the incident, including leaving the scene of accident, driving under influence of alcohol, and possession of a controlled substance, Tricia Kittinger with Woodford County Circuit Court told ABC News.

Woodford District Judge Mary Jane Phelps wasn't pleased either when she learned that Asher had written, "My dumb bass got a DUI and I hit a car…LOL" on Facebook, according to Louisville NBC affiliate WAVE. "LOL" is an abbreviation for "laughing out loud."

When Asher initially appeared in court after the July 20 accident, the judge told her to delete her Facebook account, Kittinger said. Asher did not take it seriously, and was charged with contempt of court when the judge learned her Facebook page was still active.

"Apparently it was a condition, and they said she did not get it off, and so they charged her with contempt of court," Kittinger told ABC News.

On August 28, Judge Phelps immediately placed Asher in county jail for 48 hours.

When she returned to court on September 10, she told the court that she has now deleted her account.

"The defendant is now working, she is not driving, and agreed she is no longer on Facebook," Kittinger said.

Asher told WAVE that she was not trying to make light of the accident on Facebook, and she's surprised a brief comment would land her behind bars.

"I didn't think LOL would put me in jail," she said.

Asher will be back in court on September 24, Kittinger told ABC News. She has since said that she's sorry for what she did to all parties involved.

"I apologize to everybody," she said. "I apologize to the judge. I didn't mean to hurt anybody."

The Obama administration has overseen a sharp increase in the number of people subjected to warrantless electronic surveillance of their telephone, email and Facebook accounts by federal law enforcement agencies, new documents released by the American Civil Liberties Union on Friday revealed. The documents, released by the ACLU after a months-long legal battle with the Department of Justice, show that in the last two years, more people were spied on by the government than in the preceding decade. The documents do not include information on most terrorism investigations and requests from state and local law enforcers. Nor do they include surveillance by federal agencies outside Justice Department purview, like the Secret Service.
Department of Justice agencies obtained 37,616 court orders for information about phone calls in 2011, according to the documents. That's an increase of 47 percent from the 25,535 orders obtained by the government in 2009. Including Internet and email information requests, more than 40,000 people were targeted in 2011.

Quote:
Not so today. From the feds to local Mayberry cops, all that law enforcers needs in order to obtain an order allowing surveillance to file a procedural request with a judge certifying that the information will be used in conjunction with a criminal investigation. With contemporary technology, telecommunications providers can comply with those orders at the push of a button.

"Why are we seeing such a surge? We don't really know," said Soghoian. "It may be that there's more and more FBI and DEA offices that are discovering the utility of these tools or using them more frequently."
"Maybe the social networking sites and email providers just didn't provide this information in the past, but now they do -- but what is clear is that the numbers are growing at an alarming rate."


Warrantless Electronic Surveillance Surges Under Obama Justice Department


Well this is disturbing. I just hope the FBI and others are using the metadata for good use and are following the people who deserve to be followed.

Maybe my biggest disappointment with Obama has been the fact that he has not rolled back the Patriot Act and similarly invasive executive powers that Bush put in place.

Fully agreed on that.

This is pretty shitty and unsettling, to say the least.

This is my disappointment with Obama as well.

BUT it's also an area that shines a light on the hypocrisy and blind hated of his vocal opposition. I mean when it comes to foreign policy he is Reagan and W rolled into one.

Why are we so nasty to each other online? Whether on Facebook, Twitter, message boards or websites, we say things to each other that we would never say face to face. Shouldn't we know better by now?
Anonymity is a powerful force. Hiding behind a fake screen name makes us feel invincible, as well as invisible. Never mind that, on many websites, we're not as anonymous as we think—and we're not anonymous at all on Facebook. Even when we reveal our real identities, we still misbehave.
According to soon-to-be-published research from professors at Columbia University and the University of Pittsburgh, browsing Facebook lowers our self control. The effect is most pronounced with people whose Facebook networks were made up of close friends, the researchers say.
Most of us present an enhanced image of ourselves on Facebook. This positive image—and the encouragement we get, in the form of "likes"—boosts our self-esteem. And when we have an inflated sense of self, we tend to exhibit poor self-control.

Think of it as a licensing effect: You feel good about yourself so you feel a sense of entitlement," says Keith Wilcox, assistant professor of marketing at Columbia Business School and co-author of the study. "And you want to protect that enhanced view, which might be why people are lashing out so strongly at others who don't share their opinions." These types of behavior—poor self control, inflated sense of self—"are often displayed by people impaired by alcohol," he adds.
So being impaired by alcohol and being online would be a double whammy, so to speak. Um, yeah.

Interesting article

This is why we can’t have nice things, people. Sure, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard may be calling her recent Facebook question and answer session with her constituents a “success,” but when you’re dealing with humans who have access to Facebook, remember that success is a very relative term.

Gillard had taken to Facebook on Monday to discuss her education policies in real time, the first event of its kind for the Australian government. But if you’ve ever spent five minutes on the Internet — and in particular if you’re a woman — you can guess what happened next. The 51-year-old leader was called a “slut.” She was asked, “Are your pubes as radiant, shiny and glorious as mine?” She was invited to “McPiss off you red-headed bloody McClown.” She was told, “Get my dinner ready.” And, because online animosity toward Gillard has been particularly nasty since Sydney radio personality Alan Jones declared last month that her recently deceased father had “died of shame … to think that he had a daughter who told lies every time she stood for Parliament,” she was also asked, “How’s your dad?” Say what you will about the Internet’s robust sexist, troglodyte population, at least they’re predictable.

The egalitarian nature of social media makes it a natural dwelling place for massive displays of trollishness. Ever read the replies to any politician’s Twitter stream? The spelling alone will make you despair for humanity. Have you seen Barack Obama’s Instagram feed? It doubles as a window into the racist underbelly of American idiocy.
