Police attack Facebook in dispute over child safety
"Police have accused Facebook of being arrogant for failing to install a child safety button on its web pages. The social networking site is said to have never reported a case to British police of a suspected paedophile attempting to groom a child.
"The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) has received 252 complaints about possible illegal activity on Facebook in the first three months of this year. None came from Facebook. More than 40 per cent have been about attempted grooming while others relate to hacking into personal information and cyberbullying.
"Jim Gamble, head of the CEOP, said that social networking sites were the principal cause of concern for his investigators. Reports are increasing month by month, he said."
