Facebook is still fighting the spread of misinformation in its platform, especially since it could affect the ongoing global pandemic safety measures. Now, the social media giant has to face another issue that could greatly affect its users, especially the young ones.
Because of this, Facebook Incorporated decided to launch its new initiative, which is expected to prevent the rising child abuse content. This is currently a serious matter since many young users are mostly on their Facebook account because they are forced to stay indoors.
The new anti-child abuse content initiative of Facebook was created together with various civil society organizations. These include Cyber Peace Foundation, Arpan, Aarambh India Initiative, and other groups.
To give you more idea, here are other details of Facebook's newest action against child abuse posts.
