Instagram slave market
"domestic workers are being illegally bought and sold online in a booming black market. Some of the trade has been carried out on Facebook-owned Instagram, where posts have been promoted via algorithm-boosted hashtags, and sales negotiated via private messages."

... yet, most of the apps that are banned from Google and Apple are... not involved in the slave trade.

... hmm.

@jeremiah Good to know the priorities. Makes me want to kick someone in the head.

@jeremiah nothing new here, they've been slave trading forever. just advancing it with the tech scene now.

@jeremiah It's empowering new citizens to western countries to work in the new gig e-conomy without waiting for patriarchal methods of oppression like visa, work permits, or freedom.
