'Houses of the Holy' UPDATE 6\/21\/2019:\r\nAs of June 21st, 2019, it has been reported that Facebook has allegedly lifted the ban on Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy artwork. A spokesperson for Facebook released a statement on lifting the ban: \u201cAs our community standards explain, we don\u2019t allow nude images of children on Facebook. But we know this a culturally significant image. Therefore, we\u2019re restoring the posts we removed.\u201d\r\n\r\nFacebook has allegedly banned Led Zeppelin's album artwork for Houses of the Holy\u00a0and fans are not happy about it one bit. Fans took notice of this when Facebook user Michelle Kaotic uploaded the album artwork back in 2011 to an event page marking the anniversary of the album's release. However, eight years later, the photo has been removed.\r\n\r\nFacebook issues a notice to Kaotic, saying that the post has gone against the company's community standards on nudity or sexual activity. She originally thinks it's a one-off thing. She ends up running into trouble once more.\r\nThe artwork for 'Houses of the Holy'\r\n\r\n\r\nOther people began to report similar stories. A friend who runs a Jimmy Page fan page is not let into her account for three days after posting the image. That's when Kaotic took it into her own hands to start a petition. However, it wasn't smooth sailing whatsoever.\r\n\r\n"Approximately 30 minutes after posting the petition on my page, I received a notice that the post went against community standards," she says. "I then created another post, mentioning how the petition was removed. Before too long, everyone was commenting, indicating that they had shared the petition and been given warnings.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nKaotic continues to explain that anyone who shares the petition link has the link removed. This is because the thumbnail of the album cover was showing. Some members who share the post even receive 24-hour bans. How insane is that?\r\n\r\nAdditionally, old fan pages for Led Zeppelin with the creation year of 2012 also experience removal. So, why are images of an album cover being removed? An album that has sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone no less.\r\n\r\n\r\nFacebook's algorithms are to blame\r\nSince 2013, Facebook reveals that users are uploading 350 million photos a day to the platform each day. This means a problem for proper moderation. So, they implement new algorithms. This means any photo baring a certain percentage of skin may automatically be against community guidelines.\r\n\r\nModerators see any photos against the community guidelines. However, these mods can potentially be in a country far, far away from the U.S. meaning they likely have never seen this album cover before. They just click 'Yes' or 'No' to ban the photo or keep it live. Once the removal happens, it's likely to again.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis means pretty much any photo containing any sort of nudity can trigger the community guidelines notice.\r\n\r\n"Other examples include\u00a0Jane's Addiction\u00a0album covers for\u00a0Ritual De Lo Habitual\u00a0and\u00a0Nothing's Shocking, which clearly break Facebook's standards by displaying nudity," says Kaotic. "Yet both are allowed. Van Halen's\u00a0Balance\u00a0album depicts two naked children, joined together on a seesaw, and again it's allowed."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTake a look at the official petition to stop Facebook from censoring album artwork.\r\nSpeaking of Led Zeppelin, take a look at the time one of Billy Joel's concerts turned into a Led Zeppelin cover show! It sounds amazing.
