Where is Facebook's responsibility in allowing topless photos of a 12 year-old Amanda Todd to be posted on their website?
One week ago, Canadian teenager Amanda Todd hung herself after years of being tormented by a man who used Facebook to spread topless photos of her. The photos were taken when she was just 12. Yet Facebook allowed them to be posted several times - even as her tormentor's Profile photo. The picture quickly spread among her classmates who bullied her relentlessly both in person and on Facebook.
After sharing her journey of pain in a heartbreaking Youtube video, Amanda took her own life.
Throughout this story Facebook continues to claim this abuse does not happen on their website. Yet this crime - the crime of sexually explicit photos and videos of children being posted on Facebook - is NOW undeniable.
Facebook allowed these photos to be posted and now Amanda is gone.
