Prostitution On Facebook. Recently FOX23 has been reporting about massage parlor's offering sexual favors.
Now, it looks like cyber space will give those shops a run for their money. Facebook is the newest place for prostitutes to find customers, and for those clients to find women willing to do anything, for a price.
Almost everybody knows what a prostitute is. But 90 year-old Helen isn't familiar with how 21st Century working girls find their clients; Facebook.
I am totally dumb about that sort of thing," Helen said. The face book report comes after a Columbia University professor followed New York prostitutes for one year.
After a crack down on Craigslist, prostitutes are making more and more friends. That's not good news for Renee Burke, a mom of five who lives in Owasso.
The women, and sometimes men, can essentially go undercover and hide behind a user name in the Facebook world. Using the site for prostitution is illegal according to Facebook's user agreement and Renee says the company better crack down if wants to keep people like her logged in. Tulsa Police say in Green Country Facebook is probably used to connect prostitutes with their regular customers.
Other sites, escorts. Those sites are modeled after Craigslist and FOX23 found local women and suggestive pictures saying they're willing to do just about anything.
It's not Facebook, but she is just as worried about these lesser known sites a few mouse clicks away from her child's eyes. The woman are skirting the law because the sites say they're escorts and being an escort isn't against the law.
But police say anytime money is exchanged, and sexual favors are performed could get both parties in handcuffs.
