Facebook Disabled 14,000 Accounts For Revenge Porn, Sexual Extortion In Just 1 Month

Highly explicit, exploitative, and underage content isn't allowed on Facebook. However, its guidelines do allow for "moderate displays of sexuality" as well as sexual jokes, even of a very mature nature.
Moderators at the company escalated tens of thousands of potential violations just in January. The sheer number of reported posts could explain why Facebook often doesn't adequately deal with infringing content.
