Cyber crime, burglary, and sex crimes are the three categories of criminal offenses which are most often initiated by social media sites, and the sooner people realize this, the sooner they’ll be able to protect themselves online. So, how exactly are criminals using social media? Find out in our latest presentation on Social Media & Crime!
