    Creating a Conscious alternative news network that we feel the world needs. Pura Vida!

    The Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI) has been reporting to Facebook several pages containing pictures of underage boys and girls from different parts of the country, some of them in very suggestive poses.

    These pages were brought to the attention of PANI by some of its Facebook followers, both adults and minors.

    The institution currently has two Facebook profiles with a large number of followers, where they receive complaints about pages that share inappropriate and offensive content.
    So far, PANI has reported nine profiles to Facebook, some of which have been deleted from the social network.

    Among these pages were Colegiales de Costa Rica and Colegialesticas. Both had several pictures of school girls in sexually suggestive poses.

    However, it was impossible to determine who were the creators and administrators of these pages, or how they were able to obtain the pictures.

    “There are many people monitoring this, any contribution from people will benefit us,” stated Mauricio Fallas, Social Media Manager of PANI.

    In addition, official complaints were made to the Judicial Investigation Organism (OIJ).

    Another Facebook profile some users have complained about is Tierrosas de Costa Rica. The profile has dozens of pictures of men and women, all of them in highly sexually suggestive and tacky poses. A lot of these pictures are from underage kids. In fact, some of them are shown wearing school uniforms.

    Given the situation, PANI will take actions to raise awareness among parents about the risks of using social networks.
