Yet again, the social networking site is under the scanner. They have new rules banning breasts on the site, this time concerning cancer surgery. Apparently, Facebook has banned 'sexual content' and bounced photographs that a cancer patient posted of her mastectomy scars to educate other women.

After many complaints, a Facebook spokeswoman said, "We made a mistake", and has also encouraged the woman to repost her pictures on her profile.
