Pornography is the depiction of sexual acts and activities. Well-researched information on the problems that are inherent to pornography can be found at www.pornharms.com
Sometimes also abbreviated as CP: Photo or video material that depicts sexual acts of and involving children. Child pornography is considered an offense in nearly all legal systems. A UN survey of 2009 estimates the revenue generated with child pornography to amount to a total of three to 20 billion USD globally.
Social networks such as Facebook are unfortunately used to distribute child pornography.
Example: An offender sets up the profile of a young girl and offers to share photos and videos in her name. This is how video footage and photos are distributed. The material is often cost-free given that the offenders' desire to produce and distribute child pornographic content is usually stronger than their financial needs. When such photos are published on the Internet, Facebook blocks them and erases the respective profiles (at least that is how it should be). However, the offender can simply create a new profile and continue to trade photos and videos.
The abbreviation pthc stands for "preteen hardcore" and is a synonym for child pornography. The category "favorite books" usually features "Lolita" from Vladimir Nabokov or LS-Magazine – child pornographic photo material of a former Ukrainian company. The category activities often includes pthc, little girls, young girls, incest family, preteen, child lover, mum and daughter, or 10 11 12 13 14. These pages often show disturbing pictures of children in unambiguous sexual activities. Keywords for profiles of pedophile offenders can include the words boys, little girls, love little, or fantasy names such as Sara Open Legs.
Many offenders openly admit their sexual affinity for small children and some even upload personal pictures of themselves. Facebook does not report offenders to the police who place child pornographic photos or videos onto their site and is unfortunately not very cooperative when it comes to educational work. It is mandatory to make Facebook accountable so that men and women who are suspected to produce or distribute child pornography are reported to the police!
The petition "topchildpornonfacebook" must be supported to actively stop the distribution of child pornographic material in the world's biggest social network. The Internet site also shows examples of material that was uploaded by offenders.
According to UNICEF estimates, about 2 million children are sexually abused around the world every year. The offenders sometimes come from their immediate surroundings and sometimes human traffickers sexually exploit children for commercial purposes such as child pornography or child prostitution. From a psychological perspective, there are different forms of abuse, including:
