DANGER WILL ROBINSON DANGER pedophiles are a lurkin!
I appreciate the higher age of 16 by the writer of this article, but anyone, and I mean ANYONE can download anyone else's videos and reupload them to their own profile or a 2nd or 3rd profile they also operate.
I started tracking these profiles leaving comments on my stepdaughter's videos. They leave copy and pasted messages. "I wish I could do that!" ????? WTF? You wish you could do what? Because I am looking at your profile and all you do is watch and Like videos of little girls. Then you find the worst of the worst ones who upload nothing but videos of little girls.
I have seen child porn on there folks.
Straight up child porn. Usually hidden with effects, but they have the unedited versions and they can share these videos with people that direct message them and according to the comments, they do.
Should I be graphic and describe the sort of things I saw?
The developers know this is going on too.
In fact, I question whether or not the developers had this in mind.
Plausible deniability has shielded many a suspect individual.
This app is a product of Asia’s biggest live streaming APP company, i.e., BIGO LIVE, which has already crossed 200 million downloads since its launch.
I have reported the videos and profiles, as have others, but they stay up and the profiles are not suspended or banned. That is until I got some online friends to help me put more pressure on getting these videos pulled. Anonymous type friends. They are calling us "Sharks."
They will post a video with a screen shot of our profile and say "Watch out, this profile is a Shark". I think they call us this is because, for one thing, sharks are something to be wary of, but two... it also rhymes with narc.
We are spoiling their little party.
I myself don't know anything about hacking but I know a few Anon types and they each know quite a few.
The funding behind Bigo Live!
Look at the funding vs revenue between it and its competitors.
The competitors have margins that you expect to see.
But Bigo Live has had $272 million in total funding thus far with only $5.8 million a year in revenue. It's going to take them almost 45 years to make that money back.
There are only 29 employees! And I think that is combined for both Like and Bigo Live! It is like they have no intention to monitor any of this and I know they know it is a problem. But they don't seem to see it as a problem at all. They leave these videos up and don't ban or suspend the profiles. A video needs to be reported x amount of times before it gets taken down. Any suspension they do is to cover their own bums, it would seem. I have to be careful with my wording and make it not an outright accusation. I'm just saying it seems that way.
I just find it hard to believe that only 29 employees can monitor 300 million users and all their videos. The platform they created is a pedophile collectors dream video sharing platform. You would have to go Deep Web to find these sorts of things.
I warn people on Facebook and it's crickets.
They say their daughters know better and wouldn't watch such videos, or they wouldn't upload a video of themselves doing anything, and they definitely wouldn't talk to no 30-60 yr old man.
But do you think these 30-60 men are using their own pictures in their profiles?
They use profiles of tween boys that look like they do modeling.
THEN they get these girls to send them videos they think will be private.
THEN the predator uploads them to other secret profiles that these girls don't even know about.
So they can think "not my daughter" all they want, but some of those mothers are going to be wrong.
9 ot 10 might be right, but that 1... she is going to blame herself for the rest of her life because I said something and she didn't think it was possible to happen to her own daughter.
