Facebook page is trafficking boys in Pakistan

"Beautiful Teen Boys Of Pakistan" is a Facebook page with over 2,500 likes. Some of these boys look no more than 8-years-old.  The caption on the pictures often says: "Z*** from lahore a Innocent and stylish boy style of beauty ..... if u want friendship with this boy register ur self today and get contact and fb id link info and other details of this boy."

Please report this page to anyone you think can help

The CyberTipline is the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's reporting mechanism for suspected child sexual exploitation. To make a report visit

After reporting this page, Facebook said:

This page wasn't removed
Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the page you reported for containing nudity or pornography and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards.

If you look at the comments section of the page, you will see that many people have also reported this page to Facebook and received a similar response.

If you read through the comments on the pictures of these boys, you will literally lose your lunch.

Update 1/27/14: After many people complained to Facebook, they seem to have taken down the page.  Someone forwarded this message:

"We reviewed the page you reported for containing credible threat of violence. Since it violated our Community Standards, we removed it. Thanks for your report. We let Beautiful Teen Boys Of Pakistan know that their Page has been removed, but not who reported it. Facebook never discloses who submits a report."

However, our work is not done. Pages like this continue to exist and will continue to pop up.
