Social: Facebook Allowed Child Porn To Get Thousands of "Likes" Before Pulling It


Source:  Tech News Daily.

I'm come straight to the point.  Any company should be investigated and fined heavily for allow child pornography on their site.  There cannot be any excuses.  And they have to do everything they can to help authorities catch the perpetrators.  Screw the ACLU.

Apparently, Facebook only took down a criminal pornographic video of a child being abused after it had been share 16K times and garnered thousands of "likes" before doing anything about it.  Probably only after users used Twitter and other social media to express their outrage.

However, Facebook stated they "swiftly" took down the video after being notified.  Honestly, that's a load of crap if you heard one before.  Swift action would not have allowed so many shares and likes.

And that's only part of the story.  In the original link to the story, a comment for The Independent (UK paper) stated that there was actually 29K shares and 9K likes.

Hey, Mark Zuckerberg, is money that important to you that you allow this video to be on there for such a long time before public outcry demanded the video be taken down?

C'mon, dude.
