WHO ARE THE MOST LIKELY VICTIMS AND WHY?
[SEX TRAFFICKING AND SOCIAL MEDIA EXPLOITATION]
Special Rebroadcast: Original Air Date 02/14/19
Thousands of kids each year are victimized through sextortion, social media exploitation, sex trafficking and child pornography. And, technologies such as encrypted messaging, instant messaging apps (like Facebook messenger and KIK), disappearing video (like SnapChat and Instagram), live streaming (like Tik Tok, Omegle and live.me), dating sites (like My LOL, Crush Zone, MeetMe, and Grindr), online gaming chat rooms (like GTA, Fortnight, Minecraft, and World of Warcraft), and ghost apps (like Calculator and Burn Notes) provide a technology-freeway for predators to access, groom, recruit and exploit our children.
So who are the most vulnerable victims?
- Foster, homeless and runaway kids
- Pregnant teens
- Sexually active teens
- Kids from broken homes; single parent households; kids being raised by grandparents
- Kids with low self esteem
- Kids who associate with gangs
- Deaf kids
- High-functioning autistic kids
- LGBT kids
- Affluent kids
- Pre-pubescent children who are allowed online (including online games)
- ANY KID who uses the internet and/or has a cell phone
- ANY KID who believes that exploitation will never happen to them!
