Child porn video goes viral on Facebook

Facebook is responding to a child porn video that went viral on the social media site this week.

The video was shared over 32,000 times before the social network removed it from its servers. According to users, it took eight hours before the footage was deleted. 

People who shared the video appear to have been doing so out of anger. The original source of the video is under investigation. 

In a statement to the website Buzzfeed, Facebook said, ""We have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content."  The statement continues, "We are pleased that this material was reported to us quickly enabling its swift removal."
