Facebook chiefs have said that they are working "night and day" to remove upsetting images of posters' dinners from the pages of the social media platform. They are also about to put a complete ban on other images, such as cats.

The move has come after many people complained that the merest glimpse of someone else's dinner often made them feel a bit queasy, with the result that they often didn't want to eat their own.

Cats are almost as bad.

But one thing that has really got people annoyed, is pictures of young children, often doing things which the poster perceives as funny or cute, but which other people viewing perceive as neither. Frequently, according to Facebook moderators, parents are absent-mindedly putting their children under the world's spotlight, and leaving themselves open to criticism from other users who say the youngsters are at the mercy of all kinds of online predators.

One facebook abuser, Peter File, said:

"I don't mind the photos of the kids so much, but the dinners make me want to wretch, and I'd like to strangle cats."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
