Facebook, social networks being used in human smuggling

People smugglers are increasingly relying on social media platforms, particularly Facebook, to find their customers.

Europol’s European Migrant Smuggling Center (EMSC) last year identified 1,150 suspicious social media accounts – a staggering rise from the 148 accounts it was watching in 2015.
