It’s unclear if the subjects of all those photos are adults.

In other words, if 18,000 kids are posting porn in a private group and none of them reports it as abuse, that content may never come to Facebook’s attention.

If one person posts a photo of a nude statue, however, and a single friend flags it for showing “too much bare skin,” that photo could, and indeed has been, suspended.

[The big myth Facebook needs everyone to believe] Not all of Facebook’s teen dating groups are inherently evil, however.

In the comments of the infamous “Teen Dating and Flirting,” a boy named Jordan has been pushing his alternative: a closed group he created called “Øffîčïåł :) Téëñš Øñłÿ Grøüp {13-19},” which bans adults, bullying, self-harm and anything “RELATED TO SEXUAL STUFF.” It includes the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline in its sidebar, and promises to weed out anyone who’s older than 19.

Even before the page has fully loaded, the popular Facebook group “Teen Dating and Flirting” looks like a something straight out of some parental nightmare.

It has the full teen trifecta — sexting, cyberbullying and strangers — in one unmoderated public forum that anyone, of any age, can access.

The group, and many thousands of others like it, is less about dating than rating: Teens post pouty, suggestive selfies, which other teens or adults pretending to be teens grade; the comments then invariably devolve into either requests for further contact (“add me,” “send nudes”) or flat-out cyberbullying (“barely a 4,” “gross,” “ew”).

While teen dating groups, both public and closed, have been common on Facebook for years, the genre has come to light this week for tragic reasons: 13-year-old Nicole Lovell was reportedly bullied by the group only weeks before her January disappearance. 1, she posted a selfie to the forum with the caption “cute or nah.” Of the 304 responses, most were overtly vicious.

That’s sparked a wave of outrage and concern from parents, educators and advocates.

[Virginia Tech students charged in the death of Blacksburg 13-year-old] “The teen dating sites on FB needs to be removed,” posted Help Save The Next Girl, a Virginia-based advocacy group.

“Please help us locate and pressure Facebook to remove.” It’s unclear why Facebook has allowed these groups to exist for this long.

(A Facebook spokesman did not immediately return The Washington Post’s request for explanation.) Many of the publicly viewable teen dating groups flagrantly flout the site’s community standards: Aside from the routine harassment and borderline hate speech, “Teen Dating and Flirting” is also littered with explicit pornography.
