Want to know about Facebook's views on nudity and crushed limbs?
Okay, so you're mental enough to have a Facebook account and still use it. What can you expect to see? Well, for the most part, its stupid pictures of people's babies or near identical photographs from someone's dull-looking night out.
However, thanks to a leaked document, Facebook's guidelines could see you looking at all manner of bizarre things while being prevented from seeing other, completely normal images. Like what? Well, you won't be seeing anyone breastfeeding because that may have an exposed nipple and we'll all go to hell if we see those. However, "deep flesh wounds" and "crushed heads, limbs" are just fine.
This information comes from a 13-page manual which contains facts on Facebook's image and post approval system which has been handed to Gawker from outsourcing company oDesk.
The manual helps oDesk employees police Facebook posts and pictures that have been flagged up via the "report" button. The reason the document was leaked was due to an angry employee of oDesk - Amine Derkaoui from Morocco - who has said that he was paid $1 per hour to trawl through the reports and determine whether they should be removed from the site or not. He told Gawker: "It's humiliating. They are just exploiting the third world."
A Facebook spokesperson said: "In an effort to quickly and efficiently process the millions of reports we receive every day, we have found it helpful to contract third parties to provide precursory classification of a small proportion of reported content. These contractors are subject to rigorous quality controls and we have implemented several layers of safeguards to protect the data of those using our service. Additionally, no user information beyond the content in question and the source of the report is shared. We have, and will continue, to escalate the most serious reports internally, and all decisions made by contractors are subject to extensive audits.
"We are constantly improving our processes and review our contractors on an ongoing basis. This document provides a snapshot in time of our standards with regards to one of those contractors, for the most up to date information please visit our Community Standards page ."
