First and foremost Facebook can do whatever it wants with it’s website. If you don’t like their policies then head over to Myspace or some other social site. Period. They have rules and their sticking to them and I actually applaud them for it.
It’s not a matter of whether or not it’s natural to breastfeed. Facebook doesn’t want 14 year olds downloading pictures they deem inappropriate to them. Here’s what they had to say:

Here’s what I find interesting. Mothers aren’t boycotting Facebook but instead have started new groups to voice their concern. Why not just quit Facebook? If you go out to a pizza place and the pizza is not good you don’t go back do you? This is an interesting branding problem don’t you think?
What do you think of the Facebook breastfeeding controversy?
