FACEBOOK WITHDRAW 8.7M CHILD NUDITY PICTURES IN THREE MONTHS




Facebook has announced that 8.7 million pictures of child nudity were revoked by its moderators in just three months.

The social network said that new software has been developed to automatically flag possible sexualised pictures of children.

It was put into service to test last year but has only become public now.

Another program can also detect possible show of caring for child in related to sexual exploitation, Facebook said.

Of the 8.7 million images revoked, 99% were taken down even before any report from Facebook user, the social network added.

Last year, Facebook was heavily evaluated by the chairman of the Commons media committee, Damian Collins, over the prevalence of child sexual abuse material on the platform.

This followed a BBC inquiring in 2016, which found facts that paedophiles were sharing obscene images of children via secret Facebook groups.
