In a recent investigation, CNNMoney's Laurie Segall reported on the case of an 18-year-old student whose response to a "friend" on Facebook quickly led to a life controlled by a pimp.
Now, in this video, Laurie helps you set your privacy settings to avoid sex traffickers.
I believe the biggest risk of teens to become victims to human trafficking is that if they run away. Sometimes teens will have conflicts with their parent(s). We've got to find ways for teens not to feel the need to run away due to these conflicts with their parent(s). These conflicts may lead to teens, in my opinion, to open up to people they ought not to "friend" on facebook. New ways should be developed for teens to use 211 to help prevent this. Teens could use this number as way to talk to someone about their problems. This number should be advertised on facebook as a way for teens to find solutions to their problems. This number should be promoted by their schools, as well. Perhaps, if the problem with these conflicts are due to the parent(s) approach to parenting. The teen's school would contact the parent(s) to help find solutions to this problem. It just may be as simple as the parent's communication skills or something else. The more we lower these run away statistics, the safer we make it for our teens.
