Attention Aussie Media............ Please contact Maria Mormile (firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding the BANNING by Face Book of BODY PAINTING PHOTOS AND ARTISTS WORLD WIDE. This is also affecting AUSTRALIAN Face/Body Painters and our lively hood.
Bans range from 24 hours to 30 days and are often consecutive. Recently I was banned for 24 hours for posting up a photograph of a painted MANNEQUIN.
In the last few weeks, The ORIGINAL World Body Painting Festival face book page with all its history and over 30,000 likes was deleted by face book. The UK Body Painting Festival (Paintopia) suffered the same fate not long after. As a result I have deleted all but 2 images on my profile Maria Mormile Abaa and only have a few images on The Australian Body Art Awards & Face Body Painting Convention FACE BOOK PAGE.
Face/Body Painting is a growing industry throughout the World. Body Art does not have a sexual focus and often it is difficult to see that the human body is mostly unclothed. In a sense it is a different type of clothing. Regardless, we are not focusing on nudity or sexuality but on the Art.
Face book deleting and banning appears to be automated. In addition we do not have any or option to reply to the deleting of photos or bans. The giant appears to be unaccountable to anyone!!! EXCEPT THE MEDIA???
