Supplementary notes

According to Facebook, " We restrict the display of nudity and sexual activity on Facebook. We make some exceptions when it is clear that the content is being shared in the context of a protest, for educational or medical reasons, or a similar reason. On the other hand, we default to removing sexual imagery to prevent non-consensual or underage content from being shared. This report does not include metrics related to our separate policy on the promotion of sexual assault, violence or exploitation."

According to the source "As calculating prevalence depends on manual review, prevalence for adult nudity and sexual activity is unavailable for Q2 2020, due to a temporary reduction in our review capacity as a result of COVID-19."
