While the crimes committed by users, in terms of sharing and distributing CSAM, can face justice in a criminal court, legal action against these social media companies is being considered for harboring the content and doing little to halt the illegal activity on their platforms.
The victims of CSAM are minors of all genders and ages.
There have been two major research studies completed in cooperation with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the International Child Sexual Exploitation (ICSE) Database that outline generally who victims are and the trauma they’ve suffered:
Production and Active Trading of Child Sexual Exploitation Images Depicting Identified Victims (March 2018)
Towards a Global Indicator on Unidentified Victims in Child Sexual Exploitation Material (March 2018)
These studies have deduced the following from the data gathered:
Girls appear in the overwhelming majority of CSAM: almost 80% of CSAM reports involved girls.
Prepubescent children are more likely to be depicted in CSAM.
When boys are victimized, they are more likely to be subjected to very explicit or egregious abuse.
Boys depicted in CSAM are on average younger than girls depicted in CSAM.

Instagram & Facebook (Meta) Lawsuit
Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, and its parent company Facebook (Meta) is even larger.
Facebook’s alleged knowledge of harmful material posted on their platforms (Instagram included) have prompted legal action on behalf of children and teens suffering from mental health problems relating to excessive social media use.
This aforementioned legal action goes hand-in-hand with our work to hold the social media giant accountable for the sexual exploitation of children that routinely occurs on their platforms en masse.
Preventing the distribution of child pornography and CSAM generally has been difficult.
With the variety of social media platforms available, and the “democratizing” of free speech by these sites, it’s been difficult for investigators and advocate groups to stifle the networks of child predators.
Social media companies have also put measures in place to evade responsibility for the content posted on their sites:
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have made it their mission to track and report people who distributed child pornography and CSAM to the police and other relevant law enforcement agencies through their CyberTipline.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have seen a 15,000% increase in reports in the past 15 years.
