Facebook’s Dirty Little Secret; Child Porn

World Technology News - Unbeknownst to me until very recently was the realization by a Facebook friend, that this social media network allows pornography to be displayed across its pages! However, it gets worse. Not only is there pornography of adults, but there are several pages of child pornography! But wait! It gets even worse! There are actual Facebook pages that are selling underage girls, yes, I said selling!

How can they allow teen porn pages like this https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.577540498964594.1073741828.577537028964941&type=3

child porn on facebookWith repeated requests from my friend, and several other Facebook community members to have FB take down these disgusting sites, there has been absolutely no action taken! Wow! I know…so, I came across a FB page called, Stop Posting Porn on FB, its Nasty! I immediately shared it on my wall, and invited several others to join it as well. I still don’t think this will make any difference, but it’s worth a shot.

Additionally, when I look to FB for some answers and help about taking down sites or reporting them, the best answer that they give is to ‘unfriend’ the site, or please ask them nicely to take it down. Really!? So someone that is ruthless enough to sell children on a social media network site is going to be polite and reply back to me, ‘so sorry my site offended you. I will be happy to remove my child pornography.’ WTF?

So yes, I do believe in freedom of the press, free speech, and all the rest of it. However, when you are doing something that is blatantly illegal in the country where FB is run out of (the U.S.) and also breaks international child laws, then I think it is time that action should be taken. Here is the verbiage from the United Nations Law regarding children:

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is an international treaty that legally obliges states to protect children’s rights. Articles 34 and 35 of the CRC require states to protect children from all forms of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse. This includes outlawing the coercion of a child to perform sexual activity, the prostitution of children, and the exploitation of children in creating pornography. States are also required to prevent the abduction, sale, or trafficking of children.[4] As of November 2008, 193 countries are bound by the CRC,[5] including every member of the United Nations except the United States and Somalia.[6][7]

Anyway, while I was perusing the internet to dig deeper I found some more disturbing things…I guess I am in stopchildpornthe dark because I don’t like to look for or see these disgusting things, however, I think that it is important enough to stop, so important enough to share:

A video of unknown origin appearing to show a grown man sexually abusing an infant girl went viral overnight on Facebook, garnering as many as 32,000 shares and over 5,000 likes before finally being removed by the website. According to users who came into contact with the video — whether through their newsfeed or on various Facebook forums — it took over eight hours for Facebook’s clean-up crew to eliminate the disturbing footage from its servers. For its part, Facebook claims it worked “swiftly” to delete the video, saying in a statement, “we have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content.” Testimonials on Twitter from users subjected to the criminal content would suggest a failure of Facebook’s supposed “state-of-the-art” firewall, which received much attention when it was first implemented two years ago. Facebook later upgraded its early-warning system with Microsoft’s Photo DNA, following reports that many pornographic images involving children were being regularly shared around the social network. It’s interesting to note that many of those sharing the abuse video appear to have been doing it out of disgust rather than appreciation.

When you Google Facebook and Child pornography it is amazing the amount of people who are arrested and associated with FB. Here is a quote and excerpt from http://news.cnet.com/ :

NCMEC National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Ex-President Ernie Allen said in an interview, “Facebook has been very aggressive in looking for it and responding to it.” The current President of NCMEC is John Ryan. Facebook also works directly with law enforcement agencies. Los Angeles Police Lieutenant Andrea Grossman, who is regional commander of the Los Angeles Internet Crimes against Children (ICAC) unit, said Facebook has been “extremely good at reporting and removing child porn from their site.” She said her department has “had no problems with them responding to us, nor them contacting us when they’ve found material.”

    Stacey did a nice job on this but as Paul Harvey would say “now the rest of the story”. In press releases Facebook hides behind “ we don’t want to infringe on our users that have special interests”. Ok Facebook I want you to explain to me what special interests could the following page names have? These are some examples translated in to English “ young whores”, “ young sex” ,” young d—ks”, “ d—ks 14-16 years old”, “ whores 14-16 yrs old” and many others. Then the posts again translated into English “ this is where I learn many things”, “ I like young d- – ks”, “ how much for the young whore?” etc. and 30% of the posters when you click on the men they are in the U.S. . We have been looking into this for about 4 months and have seen a bidding war happen on the pages for the little girls and boys but Facebook lets the posts stay up even when I sent in a report translated into English! 4-5 little girls have been sold and I think 2-3 little boys and Facebook knew about it and let it happen.
