Facebook place of trade prohibited goods

The smugglers have yet to find a list of the problems that the world’s largest social networking site has to deal with. Facebook has become a place to trade prohibited goods, such as ivory or rhinoceros horns.

Facebook has more than 1.5 billion users worldwide, so it’s a pretty good place to promote and trade with your products. Unfortunately, these are not just legal goods but also those whose sale is strictly forbidden.

The British Guardian describes the results of an 18-month investigation by the Commission for Justice, Wildlife, which points to the fact that smugglers increasingly use Facebook to sell their goods. These are smuggled animals, as well as ivory or rhinoceros horns.

Investigators visited the Vietnamese village of Nhi Khe, where they discovered that over the last year, smugglers on the sale of prohibited goods through Facebook and WeChat, earned over $ 53 million. And it’s just one village profit and generated by 51 sellers, so you can only imagine how big are smugglers’ incomes on a global scale.

Smugglers do their business on Facebook with closed groups that can only be accessed by one of its members. This way their reporting is much more difficult because to do this you have to be in this group. And it is unlikely that one of its members would want to cut off the ivory.

Internet dron Facebook investigated subject

The National Transport Safety Council will investigate the incident that took place during Facebook’s online Facebook test. The unmasked went through them on 28th June, but they did not succeed.

Nowadays it is hard to get around without internet but on our planet it is available. This problem is particularly serious in developing countries where the broadband internet many people can only dream of.

Facebook wants to change it and is working on a dron called Aquila, which in a very simplistic way is a flying signal relay. The machine has a 40-meter span of wings and is made entirely of carbon fiber, which reduces the weight of the entire machine.

The first Aquili test was conducted on June 28th and although Facebook is satisfied with the test, it has now come to light that dron has suffered structural damage during the landing. This aroused the interest of the National Transport Safety Council (NTSB). Officials want to thoroughly investigate the matter to make sure that the unmanned is safe and will not fall apart in the air, falling to people’s heads.

This is important because Aquila has been in the air for months, so if the design is not strong enough, it is better to know beforehand to be able to dispose of it early enough.
