Facebook Must Block Illicit Images And Videos Of Children

Facebook is a household name for millions of people around the world who use it to make friends, share pictures, and discuss common interests. But increasingly, those people include pedophiles who are using Facebook to share images of child pornography and sell kids for sex. Along with others, Men Against Prostitution and Trafficking ( began to uncover the extent of child pornography on Facebook beginning in 2010 – and it's massive. In the course of their research, MENAPAT discovered thousands of false profiles created each month featuring child pornography and code words used to connect with other pedophiles. In one day-long sweep alone, a MENAPAT member found over 1,400 images of child pornography, from toddlers up to 14-year-olds. Child pornography on Facebook primarily manifests through closed groups created by pedophiles to share photos and videos of abused children and through profiles of abused children, created by their pimps or abusers. Often, specific sex acts can be "ordered" on Facebook, and can include extreme violence and heinous brutality. Despite the severity and prevalence of child pornography on Facebook, the company has not implemented effective policies or procedures to prevent child pornography or cooperate with law enforcement to report illegal images. It's time Facebook took child pornography on their site seriously, and made it their responsibility to stop facilitating these crimes. 1 comment Christian Childs Christian Childs Dec 29, 2013 This is just perpetuating censorship and spying.

Facebook Must Block Illicit Images And Videos Of Children

Dear fellow Facebookers, It is inappropriate to have 'adult' contents in Facebook simply because Facebook is for every one - children and adults. If you feel this is appropriate, please sign this petition and it will be given to the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg so that his team will be 'careful' by making Facebook the social media for all ages. Thank you in advance for your support. With very warm regards, Thomas A C Tan

Facebook Must Block Illicit Images And Videos Of Children

Do you know what happens when you hurt the stem of a young flower? It'll probably break or bend, not allowing the flower to smile to the sun... Should we hurt the esteem of a child, any child... either by hurting their bodies or their feelings? I'm sure you thought 'No!'... and that's why I'm asking you to join all those who, like I've just done, signed this most important cause for the sake of the future of our planet, our sons and daughters, our grandchildren and all their future gifts. I'm also sure you know that to want something is very important, but only when you take action it will actually be possible. Dare to dream! Dare to act so that what you feel may happen!
