Facebook welcomes this consultation on the Child Online Protection (COP) Results Framework, which
aims to set global goals and targets on child online protection. We consider the safety of the people who
use Facebook our most important responsibility and we appreciate this opportunity to engage with the
CWG-COP on the critical issue of child exploitation.
Facebook has zero-tolerance for child exploitation and child exploitation images (CSE) and aggressively
fights against its proliferation, working closely with child protection authorities to thwart this criminal
behavior. We have long used PhotoDNA technology to scan all photos uploaded to our platform and
automatically detect known illicit child exploitation images. When an illegal image is detected, the
responsible account is immediately suspended, and the incident escalated for referral to the appropriate
child protection authorities.
