Technology News: Facebook announced plans today to ban all pictures of newborn babies, in an attempt to save the sanity of users and also to reduce the strain on its servers.


The giant social network, which has 800 million users worldwide, has conducted an extensive study into the posting of baby pictures.

“We’ve had a lot of user feedback on the topic,” said head of Facebook content guidelines Todd Toddsmith.

“Obviously we can hear you through your laptop’s built-in microphone. From analysing this data we know that 83% of our users say ‘For fuck’s sake’ when they see someone that they vaguely know has posted yet another baby picture.”

“We understand parents are proud of their children, but our research strongly indicates that unless you’re a relative of the parent, there’s a very good chance you don’t want to see 2,000 pictures of a baby in a variety of woolly hats.”
