"The literature indicates that human trafficking victims in the United States are often recruited through social media. An electronic, self- administered survey will be used to determine the extent to which people are aware of the online methods by which perpetrators of human trafficking reach their potential victims. The findings of this cross- sectional study are expected to show a low level of public awareness on how perpetrators of human trafficking are able to reach their victims through social media. These findings may help social workers and other professionals as they develop educational programming related to this social problem."
