You don’t want to get locked out of your account, do you? Because Facebook just banned the use of the eggplant, peach, and splash emoji!

Facebook has recently rolled out an update on its community guidelines, and under Section 16 of its Community Standards, users are no longer allowed to use emojis or emoji strings in ways that suggest sexual solicitation. So say goodbye to sexual innuendos by the use of emojis! They’ve rolled out this new update to crackdown on online sexual solicitation.

Additionally, sexualized slang is also banned. Along with, explicit language that goes into graphic detail about sexual activity. As well as offering or asking for pornographic material. So even if the content doesn’t belong to you, if you share it you can get banned!

Be careful with what you post!

According to Facebook’s platform policies, on the list of things that aren’t allowed on Facebook, sexual content are the ones that top the list:
  • Nudity or other sexually suggestive content.
  • Hate speech, credible threats or direct attacks on an individual or group.
  • Content that contains self-harm or excessive violence.
  • Fake or impostor profiles.
  • Spam.

So get ready to receive a temporary ban, if you’re flagged or reported for any of these. Although you’ll be glad to know that they do allow photos of breastfeeding, post-mastectomy (and any health-related photos), as well as photos of bare breasts as an act of protest.

 

So don’t get confused, you can still use the eggplant, peach, and splash emojis on Facebook. You can use them individually or use them together, as long as it’s not used in a way that expresses sexual solicitation. So post responsibly guys!
