The Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, now joins the many critics who have been censored by Facebook's strict and sometimes incomprehensible rules, after posting a famous picture from the Vietnam war, that Facebook has decided reveals too much skin.
While reposting the image, along with others, only censored according to Facebook's standards, she writes on Facebook:
"While I was on a plane from Oslo to Trondheim, Facebook deleted a post from my Facebook page.
What Facebook does by removing images of this kind, good as the intentions may be, is to edit our common history.
I hope that Facebook uses this opportunity to review its editing policy, and assumes the responsibility a large company that manages a broad communication platform should take.
I want my children and other children to grow up in a society where history is taught as it was. Where they can learn from historical events and mistakes.
Today, pictures are such an important element in making an impression, that if you edit past events or people, you change history and you change reality."
