      My brother is a pro photographer who shares his photos on a Facebook page. He is getting spam that is in varying degrees of repulsive or sexually suggestive,
      He CANNOT see it on his page nor has anyone else who follows him mentioned it. My daughter and I can both see it when we go to his page. These posts do not show comments or have “share” buttons nor am I given an option to delete, hide, etc. Only option is to report. They often disappear but new ones show up immediately. I notice almost all are different names (sponsored) and different web addresses. Another thing they all have in common is that the word PHOTO or
      IMAGES is always in the title or the description.
      My daughter, brother and I have all run “Clean My Mac” and “Malware Bytes” with nothing found. What can be done about this?

      Do you have your daughter use the same device to view Facebook or does this happen on multiple devices? Also, does this happen on different internet connections, like at home vs somewhere else?

      Are you getting the spam on when rendering Facebook your mobile devices or are you using those mobile carriers for hotspots for your computers?

        I hope I answered your question JC Hall. I’m 77 YO and not very tech savvy.

      It sounds like they are sponsored ads, if he does not see them on the page he is posting the images on.

        Is there any way to stop the posts?
        Here are examples of how they appear:

      Thank you so much, John. I’m hopeful to fix this. Am working on it now.
