'This is Pedogram': Jack Posobiec on bombshell report revealing Instagram helps pedophiles find children and child porn

Jack Posobiec of Human Events discussed the bombshell report detailing how Instagram has become an epicenter of pedophilic behavior. The Wall Street Journal, in conjunction with Stanford University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has uncovered what appears to be an online market that makes children and child porn available to pedophiles. 

Posobiec said that “researchers found that Instagram enabled people to search explicit hashtags, folks, I can’t even read most of these hashtags on air.” One of the hashtags mentioned was “#preteensex,” and another that Posobiec was not able to say on-air was “#pedowhore.” The host mentioned that users “search that hashtag, [they] could connect [people] to accounts that use these terms [advertised] child sex material.”

He went on to mention that some of these accounts “claimed to be run by the children,” going on to say these accounts post “menus of content,” allowing users to choose what specific material they would like to see. Posobiec also noted that there were often children that could be available for in-person meetups if “the right price” was met.

The podcast host went on to say that when these hashtags were engaged with over Instagram, users were sent emojis that acted as a kind of code, including an emoji of a map, which stands for a minor-attracted person, or an emoji of a cheese pizza, which shares initials with “child pornography.” 

According to Professor Brian Levine, of the UMass Amherst, many on the platform declared themselves “lovers of the little things in life,” with Posobiec adding that Instagram’s algorithm is currently playing host to pedophiles, concluding the segment by saying that “This is Pedogram.”

The Post Millennial’s report on this story stated that current and former Meta employees who worked on Instagram’s child-safety initiative estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of people who pay attention to the illegal content on the platform. 

In 2022, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children received 31.9 million reports of child pornography, a 47 percent hike from 2020. The majority of those reports have come from internet companies. Additionally, Meta, which owns Instagram, Facebook, and Whatsapp, accounted for about 85 percent of the child pornography reports filed to the center, including 5 million reports from Instagram alone.
