Meta says Facebook, Instagram are now Part of 'Take-It-Down' Program

Meta had an important announcement about the safety of young people and teens on Facebook and Instagram. So if you’re in any kind of youth ministry or working with younger people as nonprofits, this is something you might want to pay attention to. The announcement says that, both Facebook and Instagram are now part of, or founding members of, Take It Down. “Take It Down is a program, a new platform,” the announcement says, “designed to proactively prevent young people’s intimate images from spreading online. Meta also says that they support National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,NCMEC in the development of Take It Down, and building on the success of their existing platform where they are helping stop the spread of intimate images online. A good step. I also recommend if you are in this space to checkout this Take It Down program and the programs of NCMEC as well.
