In December, a New York Post column suggested that “Facebook might be outmatched against the perverts of the world.” Little has changed.

On Thursday, a video that appeared to show an adult man sexually abusing a young girl went viral on Facebook, reportedly gaining 16,000 shares and 4,000 likes. The girl in the video may have been an infant.

It was removed from Facebook after many users reported it to the social media site. BuzzFeed collected some of the tweets from horrified Twitter users, noting that “mentions of the explicit video increased dramatically” on Thursday night.

Many Twitter users expressed anger at Facebook for allowing the heart-breaking and stomach-turning video to go viral.

Facebook reaffirmed its “zero tolerance” policy for child pornography.

A Facebook spokesman told The Daily Mail, A Facebook spokesperson said: ‘Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site, and this material has no place on Facebook.

‘We have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content.

‘We are pleased that this material was reported to us quickly enabling its swift removal.’
