(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – According to recent investigations by researchers at Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Instagram, the widely used social media platform owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook (now known as Meta), has failed to prevent the connection and promotion of a sizable network of accounts involved in the creation and purchase of child pornography.
Dealers in child pornography on Instagram are so egregious that they present a “menu” of services on Mark Zuckerberg’s website.

According to recent studies conducted by scientists at Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Instagram, a popular social media site owned by Facebook, allows for connecting and promoting a sizable network of accounts engaged in producing and purchasing child porn. This is according to The Wall Street Journal.
According to researchers, Instagram’s algorithms, developed to connect users with related niche interests, encourage these illicit behaviors.
The platform’s recommendation engines have been found to steer users toward explicit content and establish connections between content vendors and pedophiles.
“Instagram’s algorithms are great at connecting people with certain interests. Sadly, this has resulted in the promotion of pedophilic behavior and the association of pedophiles with material sellers,” according to a researcher working on the project.
Researchers found that by searching for explicit hashtags on Instagram, users might find accounts that marketed child sex material. Some accounts went so far as to offer “menus” alternatives for content, including videos of children injuring themselves and having sex with animals.
In response to the research results, Facebook admitted challenges with enforcement and announced the formation of an internal task group to solve the problems.
So we find out today that Zuckerberg is using Instagram to peddle child porn to users for money using pictures of things like pizza?
First why hasn’t Zuckerberg been called before Congress?
Tell me again how pizzagate is a conspiracy theory.

The business claims to have taken down 27 pedophile networks in the last two years and plans to take down more. Along with deleting thousands of child-sexualizing hashtags, the company strives to prevent its systems from recommending prospective pedophilic adults communicate with one another.
“Child exploitation is an abominable crime,” according to a Facebook spokeswoman. “We’re always looking into ways to defend ourselves against this behavior.”
Despite these efforts, the problem is still a work in progress. The researchers found that Instagram’s content-discovery tools, reliance on search, and links between accounts all contribute to the issue.
The platform’s use of hashtags for content discovery has been used by pedophiles to increase the accessibility of their content.
According to a researcher from the Stanford Internet Observatory, “Instagram’s problem comes down to content-discovery features, the ways topics are recommended, and how much the platform relies on search and links between accounts.”
The researcher continued, “You have to put guardrails in place for something that is growth-intensive to still be nominally safe, and Instagram hasn’t.”
Facebook plans to expose even more children to the horrors of Mark Zuckerberg’s social media platforms, despite the enormous risk posed by a network that permits pedophiles to act without restraint.
Zuckerberg’s ambitions for “Instagram for Kids” to reach young children were previously covered by Breitbart News:
“Recode reports that during a Senate hearing this week, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri revealed that the company is still considering developing an “Instagram for Kids” app despite recent reports on the platform’s negative effect on teens’ mental health and previous promises to halt the development of such an app.”
During the hearing, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) asked Mosseri if he would commit to permanently ending the development of Instagram for Kids, to which Mosseri responded: “What I can commit to you today is that no child between the ages of 10 to 12 — should we ever manage to build Instagram for 10- to 12-year-olds — will have access to that without explicit parental consent.”
Mosseri’s answer shows that Facebook may still build an app for kids but will require some form of parental consent for children to access it.
STOP POSTING YOUR KIDS ONLINE!!!Instagram allows these pedos to traffic kids and child porn right in the open!! #Zuckerberg needs to be arrested. Extremely excited to see #MelGibson taking a stand against these demons.https://t.co/3cn3I0Qb6j pic.twitter.com/TUJwNNg9Ev
