SHUEYVILLE, Iowa (AP) - Facebook is apologizing for disabling the account of an Iowa photographer who had posted maternity and birth pictures, including shots of a friend and her baby moments after birth.
Facebook said Thursday its decision to disable Laura Eckert's account Dec. 22 was a mistake.
Eckert is a photographer who specializes in pictures of pregnant women and birth and she uses Facebook to communicate with clients and highlight her work. She says she was shocked when Facebook told her last month she posted an inappropriate photo that contained nudity.
When she logged on to find out which one, she says her account was disabled. Eckert says she sent 30 inquiries to Facebook and didn't get a response until Thursday.
