Fury as child porn goes viral on Facebook with 16,000 'shares' and 4,000 'likes'

Facebook has sparked fury after a graphic child porn video went viral on the social network, reportedly being 'shared' over 16,000 times.

Thousands of users logged onto their accounts last night to find the horrifying footage appear on their personal news feed and instantly took to Twitter to vent their disgust.

Even more disturbingly, users then began uploading and sharing screen grabs of the video on Twitter in an apparent bid to alert fellow Twitterati of the horrifying content.

But this disturbing underbelly of the popular social networking website is not a new revelation to the company, which until 2011 relied heavily on reports from its users about illegal activity.

Last year an exposé published by WND.com revealed a disturbing amount of child pornography being shared by predators on the social network.
