Did Paedophiles Start the Facebook Cartoon Trend?

There have been many blogs and individuals claiming that paedophiles started the Facebook trend, where thousands, or possibly even millions of people changed their Facebook profile pictures to cartoons to support the work of the NSPCC and take a stand against child abuse.

There has been no mention of this story by BBC News or The Guardian Online. This makes it seem like this story could be a hoax. According to several blogs today, this story is untrue but many also claim that the NSPCC didn’t start this trend either. It could be that this is an individual trend by one person or a group of people that spread through the power of the viral social media. If so, then Facebook users shouldn’t get so worried.
