Today, Facebook users have been warned for not sharing missing children pictures. According to the company’s point of view, such advertisements can harm them rather than protecting them.

On the other hand, in the users’ view, it is the best thing to put pictures and providing information about the lost children. But, the UK law enforcement agencies have warned the users for not putting such posts on the social media.

According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Facebook users who make the post about the missing children are indirectly helping those persons who want to provide more harm to children.

The Kindersley RCMP warned:

“By sharing these photos you may be putting a life at risk. Sometimes the missing children in the posts that you share are not actually missing. They may actually be hiding for their own safety. Nefarious onlookers could include a parent who may have been forbidden access to their child in the courts. To avoid causing further harm, users should make sure the missing person posts have come from an official police source or reputable publication before sharing,”

This warning was made for the children’s safety and actions were taken as the social media was unable/fail to remove sexualised image of the children from its news feed. After which, the social media was criticized at high level.

 Domain collins, Chairman of the culture, Media and sports committee of UK said that he is having grave doubts on the moderation of the soical network as it is failed to remove more than 80% of sexual images.
