UMass Rescue Lab Garners Attention from Wall Street Journal Article

Professor Brian Levine, director of the UMass Rescue Lab, is a contributor to a Wall Street Journal investigative report alleging that Instagram's algorithms are helping connect and promote a vast network of accounts devoted to the commission and purchase of underage-sex content. "Instagram is an on-ramp to places on the internet where there's more explicit child sexual abuse," says Levine, who is an author of a 2022 report for the National Institute of Justice on internet child exploitation.
