Facebook & Twitter Used To Lure Kids Into Human Trafficking

Posted: Updated:

We're learning about a new way predators are luring children into human trafficking.

It's something that many of us use every day.

The Salvation Army is sounding the alarm about Facebook and Twitter.

They say human trafficking has always been a problem, but it's more wide spread because of social media.

The organization sees this as a phenomenon that could affect thousands of Oklahoma minors.

Major Francina Proctor says, "Trafficking in OKC and the surrounding areas, matter of fact, for the whole state is enormous. With our technology now, it's just overwhelming."

The Salvation Army is hoping to raise money for more safe houses and resources to help victims of human trafficking.
