Posted in: Child Protection&Online Safety at 08/05/2012 15:00
While many people have used Facebook to do some good, a small portion of the service's 901 million diverse users has been using the social network to do the complete opposite.
Child porn photos traded on Facebook in plain sight
Facebook has reportedly become a source for pedophiles to trade graphic photographs. Child pornography is heavily being shared by predators on the social network.
Facebook is the world's largest photo-sharing website: the service saw 300 million photos uploaded daily in the three months ended December 31, 2011. This is because it's the world's most popular social network, with 901 million monthly active users as of March 31, 2012. Facebook thus has to work hard to stop questionable content, everything from sick baby scams to pornography and violence.
Facebook And Child Pornography: Shocking Amount Of Pedophiles Use Facebook To Share Pictures, Videos
Facebook and child pornography are not words that people normally link together. In fact, Facebook, as the world's largest social networking site, is a hotbed of "miracle" stories, like a man who donated his kidney to save someone's life, or even parents hoping to adopt finding the perfect child.
Unfortunately, along with all of the good stories, there are the bad. WND's Chelsea Shilling recently released a report regarding the issue of Facebook and child pornography, showing just how easy it is for pedophiles to friend each other and share their interests, including pictures and videos of children performing and going through horrifying acts.
