The network directory of policy at Facebook, Simon Milner, agreed to be interviewed last week by BBC on the condition that BBC provide examples of the material. After BBC did so, Facebook cancelled the interview and reported the journalists to the National Crime Agency of the UK for distributing illegal images.
The Times reported several videos of beheadings by ISIS, posters supporting recent terrorist attacks, and violent pedophilic cartoons. Facebook stated that the posts were not in breach of its community standards.
BBC reporters used the report feature to notify Facebook of 100 images related to child pornography. 18 were removed. Facebook reported that the other 82 did not violate community standards. They included sexual images of children and pages for men with sexual interests in children.
