"Discovered a new porn site, it's called Facebook"

Some Facebook users said they deactivated their accounts after seeing horrific images on the site

The pictures are reported to have shown up in users' newsfeeds.

According to the technology site, ZDnet, the material is being spread via a "linkspam virus" which tempts members to click on a seemingly innocuous story link.

A spokeswoman for Facebook said: "[We are] aware of these reports and we are investigating the issue".

Thousands of the site's members have posted comments about the breach on Twitter.

"Discovered a new porn site, it's called Facebook," wrote one user.

"Facebook should do something about the photoshopped porn images, it's offensive," wrote another.
