Facebook is more popular for prostitutes than Craigslist
According to a study on how technology is changing sex work, the world's oldest profession is digitizing just as fast as everything else. The study found that over eighty-three percent of prostitutes have Facebook pages and that more of them solicit sex work through the social-networking site than via Craigslist. Another interesting stat: most prostitutes have smart phones, over seventy-percent of which are BlackBerrys. The business-y associations of the phone apparently make men feel safer.
