HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - Facebook officials are speaking out after a Hickory mom says could be banned for life from the social media site after she posted a photo of her young daughter that exposed her buttocks.

Jill White, a photographer from Hickory, told WBTV that she had recreated the famous "Coppertone Girl" pose with her two-year-old daughter and the photo was deemed "pornographic" by Facebook and she was threatened with a lifetime ban.

White says after the photo was reported to Facebook the first time, she was banned for 24 hours. After the ban, she censored the photo and reposted it onto Facebook.

That photo was reported as well and White said if Facebook deemed it inappropriate as well she could face a lifetime ban.

Facebook officials contacted WBTV after the story began circulating the internet and said White is not facing a lifetime ban.

An official says an account must have multiple reported pieces of content deleted before they disable a Facebook account without the possibility of it being reactivated.

"It is hard. With over 1 billion people using Facebook we have to put in place a set of universal guidelines that respect the views of a wide range of people," a Facebook spokesperson said.

"These policies are designed to ensure Facebook remains a safe, secure and trusted environment for everyone on Facebook," the statement continued.

Facebook officials say White's photo was not removed from Facebook because it was considered pornographic.

The first picture was removed because it displayed her daughter's nude bottom, which falls on Facebook's parameters for deletion.

They say when it comes to photos of children, Facebook takes a serious look at reported photos and work hard to keep the site as safe and secure as possible.

According to Facebook's Terms of Service, there is a "strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people's right to share content of personal importance."

The censored photo that White posted on Facebook has been reported, but has not been removed by Facebook.
