Facebook’s Newest Venture: Sex Trafficking  

Facebook Continues to Make Bad Headlines

Cristal M Clark 

Facebook hasn’t been one to really give a shit the past few years about any of its data leaks, tracking users without permission, allowing the spread of misinformation, and now not surprising sex trafficking. 

No, you didn’t read that wrong, facebook according to a newly released report published by the Human Trafficking Institute is the most commonly used social media platform for human sex trafficking recruitment in the US. 

Bravo Mark Zuckerberg, bra-fucking-vo, Mark. 

Facebook was the most common platform for child recruitment, with the report noting that “65% of child victims recruited on social media were recruited through Facebook.” That is over half of the online recruitment effort, over half!

Facebook, by the way, is not really all that popular with teens, while roughly 70% of American adults frequent the site, it is not the favored platform among teens. Roughly  51% of teems used the network, while YouTube, Instagram, and Snapchat took the top spots in a 2018 survey. Yet, the report says, “Despite Facebook’s reputation as a less popular platform among teenagers, it was a more common platform for recruiting child victims than adult victims in 2020 active sex trafficking cases.” 

Why is that? Because Facebook has some frighteningly lax rules, allows for rampant stalking, does very little to thwart obvious scams, phishing attempts, bots and the like. And, Facebook encourages users to share detailed intel about one’s life. I am sure you have all seen the posts, the shitty memes that ask seemingly innocent questions. 

These bulishit memes are designed to obtain even more information about you, scammers and even sex traffickers utilize that information to steal your identity for the purpose of scamming banks and credit card companies out of money, some use it to stalk people and others, to sex traffic. 

The problem is not the users, the problem is the platform itself. 

If the platform really cared at all about users it would in fact not allow for so much personal information to be shared and would in fact stop these bogus memes, questions tossed out to readers and the like. 

The point is, users of the platform are simply and only the almighty dollar sign to Mark Zuckerberg and to the platform’s advertisers. 

The clear and obvious answer here is that the platform should face strict regulation. I know people don’t like that, but none of you want your daughters sex trafficked so choose one or the other here. Telling kids not to do something is like trying to wrangle feral cats. 

The platform either needs to be taken offline or it needs to be heavily regulated and held accountable for a change.

Back by Popular Demand: Anonymous Issues Threat Against Elon Musk

Unsure if Elon Took it Seriously 

Cristal M Clark 

An individual wearing the signature Guy Fawkes Anonymous mask posted on YouTube and Facebook on Saturday, a warning to Elon Musk “This is a message from Anonymous for Elon Musk, for the past several years you have enjoyed one of the most favorable reputations of anyone in the billionaire class because you have tapped into the desire that many of us have to live in a world with electric cars and space exploration, but recently your carefully created public image is being exposed and people are beginning to see you as nothing more than another narcissistic rich dude who is desperate for attention, it appears that your quest to save the world is more rooted in a superiority and savior complex than it is an actual concern for humanity.”

“This has been obvious to your employees for a long time, who have faced intolerable conditions under your command for years. It is also obvious to the young children working in your overseas lithium mines, which are destroying the local environment as well.”

“It seems that the games you have played with the crypto markets have destroyed lives.”

“Millions of retail investors were really counting on their crypto gains to improve their lives. Of course, they took the risk upon themselves when they invested, and everyone knows to be prepared for volatility in crypto, but your tweets this week show a clear disregard for the average working person.”

“As hardworking people have their dreams liquidated over your public temper tantrums, you continue to mock them with memes from one of your billion-dollar mansions, you may think you are the smartest person in the room, but now you have met your match. We are Anonymous! We are legion. Expect us.”

In short the group is accusing Elon of ruining lives by manipulating cryptocurrency markets, the video was posted after Musk posted cryptic tweets on Thursday night suggesting he was ending his relationship with Bitcoin, which in turn caused the cryptocurrency to tumble in value. 

What’s striking about the reports of the video is that social media erupted with support for Anonymous. Several users expressed that they missed the old Anonymous who would stand up for the little guy and actually do something. Maybe the support comes frustration over lack of wages, housing, the loss of democracy in the United States, bat shit crazy politicians, crooked, lying presidents, and the fact that we are still facing horrible issues brought about by the worldwide pandemic in this nation. In fact, some users expressed an overwhelming feeling that they hope Anonymous is making a comeback so as to help people worldwide. 

Who knows if the group has more plans as we emerge from this pandemic but for the time being everyone is wondering just what Elon thinks of the threat, or what will really come of it.
