Clip allegedly showed a young girl being abused by an older man Steve Anderson Friday 22 March 2013
An apparent child porn video has appeared on Facebook, leaving the social network’s users reeling in disgust.
Internet users today vented their fury on rival social network Twitter after the video – that those who have seen it claim showed a young girl being abused by an older man – was shared over 16,000 times and received almost 4,000 ‘likes’….
Although Facebook quickly removed the video, users had already taken screenshots of the video and began circulating it on other networks, in a seeming attempt to alert other internet users.
A Facebook spokesperson said: “Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site, and this material has no place on Facebook.
“We have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content.
“We are pleased that this material was reported to us quickly enabling its swift removal.”….
