Facebook  “Facebook has decided to help by giving 1 Like = 2 dollars. 1 Comment = 4 dollars. 1 Share = 8 dollars.”   The photos are of three-year-old Jasper Allen, from Cambridgeshire, whose battle with a severe case of chickenpox was covered by several media outlets last year.His mother, Sarah Allen, told the BBC: “We were warned people might take these pictures … because if you Google chickenpox his pictures are there.“So, we were well aware that might happen, but not in this respect, to say he had cancer.” Sarah Allen with her children Jasper and Poppy  Sarah Allen with her children Jasper and Poppy Credit:Mercury  “Facebook needs to take action. I was told it was removed but within 24 hours it was back again.”Facebook doesn’t comment on individual cases but will remove any unauthorised content once it has fully investigated valid complaints.The social network has tools in place which allows users to report potential infringements. A fake Facebook post about a child who scammers pretended has cancer has been shared by more than 1.2 million users of the social network.Photos of a child with chickenpox were used to fool users into thinking Facebook would donate money to help the boy depending on the amount of shares and likes the post received.“This little baby has cancer and he needs money for surgery,” the fake post, which Facebook removed after an investigation, said. Mrs Allen said Facebook removed the post after she complained, but alleges the account then reappeared 24 hours later. The images have now been removed from Facebook for privacy violations and other flagged accounts have also been disabled. “What’s so disgusting [is] it’s not just Jasper’s picture but [about] 100 of other people’s families as well,” added Mrs Allen.last_img
