This was a mistake
A report by The Guardian shows how Facebook had been running a survey asking users, “whether pedophiles should be allowed to proposal children for sexual pictures on the site.”
It resulted in Facebook admitting their “mistake” how it had “no intention” of allowing such behavior.
Guy Rosen, vice president, product, Facebook gave the statement. “We run surveys to understand how the community thinks about how we set policies.
But this kind of activity is and will always be completely unacceptable on FB. We repeatedly work with authorities if identified. It shouldn’t have been part of this survey. That was a mistake.”
