To preserve the child's innocence, it is the responsibility of every parent, guardians, family, and the community as well, to protect and keep them away from harm. Still, there are cases where children are exposed to dangers, and one of this is pornography. The invention of the internet allowed not only the growth of communication but gave a new medium for child pornographer, giving them greater access virtually through social networking sites, file-sharing sites, and photosharing sites. This study is anchored on using Latent Dirichlet Allocation Algorithms technique for processing the content analysis of online documents relating to child pornography from which five latent themes were generated.
