Facebook has apologized to Victoria Buckley, a Sydney jewelry designer who uses images of a nude porcelain doll to accompany her high-end jewelry store advertisements. The social-networking website initially deemed the naked-doll images "inappropriate content." This isn't the first time that Facebook has been in the breast-censorship business: In 2008, the site sparked controversy after removing profile pictures of women breastfeeding.

This time, the site made a quick turnaround, issuing a statement acknowledging that removing the photos from Buckley's fan page after sending her numerous warnings for publishing "inappropriate content" was a "mistake."
