Engadget: Facebook admits its image screening fell short

Engadget: Facebook admits its image screening fell short. “To say that Facebook has some egg on its face right now would be an understatement. The social network not only didn’t take down some sexualized images of children, but reported the BBC when it drew these images to its attention. However, the company now says it has turned a corner. Facebook’s Simon Milner tells the UK’s Home Affairs Committee that the incident showed the company’s moderation system ‘was not working.’ The offending photos have since been taken down, he says, adding that the process should be fixed.”
