Shocking number of child porn profiles on Facebook prompt the question: Can Facebook get their child porn problem under control?

You!

In a dark attic, a little girl, no older than 9, appears with a
distrustful look on her face as she wears only a training bra. She
glimpses the camera out of the corner of her eye. The many comments
under her photo are telling:


“So cute!” one man declares.


“Oh yes, that’s right,” says another.


She is only one of 40 other preteen girls on a single profile who are dressed in sexy swimsuits, bras or nothing at all.


It is just one photo among thousands of explicit images and videos of
child sexual exploitation – all available on the social network 901
million users have come to know and love, Facebook. Most of America’s
users have no idea that the social network is home to an enormous
collection of unreported child pornography and sexual violence.


In a dark attic, a little girl, no older than 9, appears with a distrustful look on her face as she wears only a training bra.


As WND previously reported,
most of these predators aren’t merely looking at child pornography
images. A 2007 Federal Bureau of Prisons study in which psychologists
conducted an in-depth survey of online offenders’ sexual behavior,
revealed that 85 percent of convicted Internet offenders said they had
committed acts of sexual abuse against minors, from inappropriate
touching to rape.


The U.S. Department of Justice explains:


Unfortunately, the child pornography market exploded in
the advent of the Internet and advanced digital technology. The Internet
provides ground for individuals to create, access, and share child
sexual abuse images worldwide at the click of a button. … Child
pornography offenders can connect on Internet networks and forums to
share their interests, desires, and experiences abusing children in
addition to selling, sharing, and trading images.

    It's a (sick) unwinnable war. Facebook cannot control it without mass censorship that would destroy their credibility and usage of a site. Their users would simply move to the next big thing. I think Google has more of an issue than facebook personally.

    They hopefully are turning over what information they have to the authorities so that the scum bags who post that sort of thing can be caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. That is why I won't post pictures of my family online. I have discussed this with other family members. I don't want some scum bag looking at my family pictures - and for sure not my younger family members. I wish people would realize that when they put pictures of their children on their Facebook (or any type of site) page that those pictures may be copied - and then used by whomever wants to use them in whatever way they choose. Once your pictures are out there you can't take them back.

    It saddens that most of my fellow Earth Tenants are statists, makes me wonder about the entire collective worth of the human population.

    What's the definition of insanity?!

    The reason I bring that up is because statism is a FAILED system, always has been, NEVER has produced good results, and never will! What makes you statists of the planet think that confining someone to a concentration camp for aberrant behavior will solve the problem, when to this point it hasn't?! And concentration camps waste land, and resources! Resources that would be better used proving Free Housing for people, or as Aeroponic Facilities to provide FREE organic food for people!

    Pedophilia is a strange phenomenon, any adult who gets sexually aroused by a 7 year old has got something wrong with them, they have a biochemical imbalance in their brain, and we need to figure a SCIENTIFIC solution to the problem, NOT a STATIST solution which in reality is NOT a solution at all because there NOTHING scientific about ANYTHING governments do, governments are NOT in the business of solving problems because solving problems WOULD PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS! Which is exactly what needs to happen!

    As to whether or not the admin on Facebook is being responsible, As an ANARCHIST and one who LIVES by the definition...

    As to whether or not the admin on Facebook is being responsible, As an ANARCHIST and one who LIVES by the definition of the term, I am for ELIMINATING the admin on sites like Facebook, This one we're all on right now, and all other websites on the internet! I am staunchly opposed to all forms of rulership, NOT just governments, I am Against Governments, Corporations, Academic Institutions, Religions, Security in Buildings, Bouncers in Nightclubs, Management office in apartment complexes, Landlords, Business Men, etc!

    The best way to resolve the issue people on Facebook you STATISTS on here are complaining about which is NOT exclusive to Facebook (I can assure you, if you search this site, you'll find pedophiles on here too) is allow the users of the site freedom to speak against people like that, to alert other users of the site, if you're a parent, don't let your children go to the profiles of users like that, they will have no friends, they will be shunned by other users just as you people are shunning the behavior on here. Most importantly, there needs to be scientific ways of diagnosing, and treating the biochemical imbalance that's causing such aberrant behavior.

    Part of what is causing it is the sexualization of modern society.

    Thank Hollywood and TV.

    Thank Hugh Hefner from the early '60's in America.

    Then thank those that would eliminate the good aspects of religion.

    Since it is unlikely we will return to the stone age, prepare yourself for more of the same.

    This is a for profit site, as long as they have advertisers then nothing will be done; this a corporation, they have no vested interest in protecting anyone regardless of age; all that matters is the money.

    Could be stopped if users stopped using Facebook; this will not happen because most people only care about their little world and their so-called "friends"

    Get the situation under control. There is no rational reason why stuff like this should be found on a website like facebook... I WOULD look for the pages myself (to report them) but frankly I don't want to see young children posed like porn stars. It's sickening. I feel if facebook can take the time to delete criticism of their stupid timeline updates, they have MORE than enough time to figure out where these photos are being posted from and turn the information over to authorities.

    great minds

    I know one thing, if I was Zuckerman I would be PERSONALLY assigning people to figure a way to help the authorities track these sickos down. WE can't prevent grown ass adults from getting sick sexual enjoyment from innocent children but we can prevent them from having such a site to trade and 'brag' on.

    They should coordinate their efforts with any kind of child pornographic sting operations going on. This is a reason I have so very few friends over there at Facebook and the ones that I do are very trustworthy as I know them in real life.

    Face recognition software does a lot more than just try to identify your friends. Facebook better get a grip on this or it will compound the distrust a lot of people already have. People my age remember when everyone HAD to have Yahoo!. Then they HAD to have AOL. Then they HAD to have Myspace. Facebook's no more invincible than the rest.

    Do everything in their power to control it, as much as any other site or the WWW in general. I know police get involved in these cases and try to ascertain who the people are involved and arrest them. That's all any of us can do. See something, report it to the police.
