Facebook Apologizes for Removing Gay Kiss

Facebook has apologized for removing the photo of two men kissing from a page a few weeks ago.  The page was created in support of two men who were tossed from a pub for kissing.  US writer Niall O’Conghaile created the page to publicize a "kiss-in".

My readers will remember I started a campaign on Twitter to report heterosexual kissing on Facebook as "offensive" and request it be removed.  Personally, I reported a few hundred pages and I suspect others did the same.  Apparently Facebook took so much flack that they relented and restored the picture. (I am not claiming credit for this in any way, just noting that it happened.)
