Facebook Asked Users If Asking Children for Nude Pictures is OK

Crime, Cultural Marxism, Internet, Rundown, Social Media

Facebook has angered and socked its users by asking them if they believed it appropriate for grown men to ask underaged people for pornographic pictures of themselves. The company is surveying millions of its users to understand what will make their experience of the platform more enjoyable.

However, through the questions of questionable content and what is considered “fake news” one question grabbed the attention of users in a less than formidable way. The question read: “In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook’s policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures.”

Shock and anger ensued, as most reasonable Facebook users would assume that, due to general moral and legal principles, the company would know that this would always be an unacceptable behaviour regardless of their users’ input.

The company has since apologized, but the question of what kind of person is at the levers of control within the platform continues. Should people who don’t understand the inherent immorality of paedophilia have control over the largest communication platform in the world? And, how does having people of this moral character in control of this platform affect the way people will communicate with each other?

Take into consideration that Facebook is a platform that has banned and unpublished pages and individuals for posting harmless memes and objective yet unsavoury facts. Yet it is this same platform that seems to on the fence regarding the harassment of children for the purposes of obtaining infantile pornography on their platform.
