The oftentimes bewildering practices of the Facebook censorship guidelines have struck again, temporarily banning The New Yorker's Facebook page for violating community standards. The offending material? This Mick Stevens cartoon. The representation of nudity in art posted on the site has been a contentious issue, but this particular instance seems especially absurd. Read more about "Nipplegate" after the break.

We have seen this work in the past, and we love this piece, the Likecohoic, by Asaf Hanuka (yes, Tomer's brother). The best part is that we are hoping you will get your inner "likecoholic" into this post and like it yourself.

As the national media continues to label David Choe (who curated an entire issue for Juxtapoz in May 2010) a "homeless graffiti artist" turned owner of Facebook shares, we look back at David's initial painting at the Facebook headquarters, with archived footage of Sean Parker's first reaction of Dave's mural at the offices.

Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied have created this great project Once Upon, where they have taken three major social networking websites (YouTube, Facebook, and Google+) and reprogrammed them to look as if they existed in 1997. There recreations were optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03 and Windows 95, making us feel very, very high school when we saw the results.

This is pretty cool news: Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, commissioned David Choe to create this new painting, and it looks like it was delieverd recently. If you remember, David Choe was commissioned by Facebook to paint their first offices in Palo Alto, California in 2006. The two have stayed in touch over the last 5 years, and David created this new piece for Mr. Facebook. Bigger views after the jump . . .
