Most of the world’s sex trafficking activity occurs on Facebook now. And Twitter, as we have reported on in the past, is a magnet for pedophiles who use it to exchange illegal photos and videos of their victims.
According to the Human Trafficking Institute’s 2020 Federal Human Trafficking Report, the vast majority of online recruitment for sex trafficking occurs on Mark Zuckerberg’s digital baby, where perverts lure children into the sex trade.
“The Internet has become the dominant tool that traffickers use to recruit victims, and they often recruit them on a number of very common social networking websites,” says Human Trafficking Institute CEO Victor Boutros.
“Facebook overwhelmingly is used by traffickers to recruit victims in active sex trafficking cases.”
Data from the past two decades shows that 30 percent of all victims identified in federal sex trafficking cases since the year 2000 were recruited online.
In the U.S. in the year 2020, 59 percent of online recruitment of identified victims in active cases took place on Facebook alone. And a whopping 65 percent of identified child sex trafficking victims recruited on social media were recruited specifically through the Facebook platform.
