(Newser) – Amid an outcry from parents, Facebook has quickly killed a page seeking the world's "Most Beautiful Teen." The page hosted a contest that sought teenagers' photos and had amassed a collection of sometimes suggestive photos, ABC News reports. The pictures garnered comments like "her nose is too big" and "I would not touch with a ten foot pole." In a statement, Facebook said it does not "tolerate bullying" and takes "action on content reported to us which we categorize as such."

Back in the "good old days", my high school had at least one beauty pageant a year, along with hotly contested elections for homecoming queen, homecoming court and several different variations of "most beautiful" in the school yearbook. The only thing new about this is that it is on the net.
