The world’s leading social media website Facebook has confirmed that they have begun an investigation into the highly controversial and popular 48 hour challenge game which is organised by teenagers through its platform.
According to Metro.co.uk the internal investigation comes after the sick game has seen a sharp rise in popularity in the UK over the past few months.
The game which has been criticised by authorities and parents worldwide has become somewhat of hit amongst teenagers who deliberately dare one another to leave home for 48 hours before returning.
However the game which leaves many parents deeply worried about their childs welfare normally results in a number of police investigations being launched in a bid to find those who go missing.
The resulting investigations which come at a cost to the taxpayer and ultimately ends up wasting police time have seemingly become too much for both parents and authorities across the globe as a formal request has been submitted to the social media website in order for them to investigate the game.
Although Facebook say they cannot control what is being posted on their site, chiefs at the website say they will conduct a review into the issue which is becoming an ever increasing problem worldwide.
In a brief statement Facebook say they are deeply concerned about the matter and they are working closely with policing authorities in order to address the problem.
They added we at Facebook always take the serious matter of missing people/persons very seriously and we work closely with the said authorities in order to implement the appropriate measures which are shared by our users in the hope that those missing are found safe and well.
The game which has also been popular here has caused outrage amongst social media users who graciously share the appropriate information in the hope that those genuinely missing can be found.
However many have become annoyed in recent months after being informed about the popular challenge.
