Facebook failed to remove sexualised images of children – BBC News

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) also voiced concern.

“Facebook’s failure to remove illegal content from its website is appalling and violates the agreements they have in place to protect children,” said a spokeswoman.

“It also raises the question of what content they consider to be inappropriate and dangerous to children.”

The BBC first asked Facebook for an interview about its moderation system in late-2015, and repeated the request following this follow-up investigation.

The social network’s director of policy Simon Milner agreed to be interviewed last week, on condition the BBC provided examples of the material that it had reported, but had not been removed by moderators.

The BBC did so, but was reported to the UK’s National Crime Agency as a consequence.

This story is almost comical.
