Breaking out of England: The Times of London (which is subscription-only, but here’s a Telegraph rewrite) reports that it has found evidence of prostitutes running absolutely rampant on Facebook and Twitter. The title screeches: “Children ‘are put at risk’ as prostitutes use Facebook to sell their wares.”
We’re shocked, shocked that sex workers would be advertising on social media services that are already overrun with marketers. Or we would be, if researchers hadn’t already revealed as much about two years ago. Did the anyone really think shutting down Craigslist’s adult services section was going to eject sex-for-sale from the Internet?
