Child abuse: How has Social Networking changed the face of it?

Sugar & Spice (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sugar-Spice/dp/B004AYDK22/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpi_1) deals with a number of issues; child abuse, serial-killers, death, how society treats potential and convicted abusers: the list goes on.

The original idea for the book came about in the early 90’s, when things like the internet, Facebook and Twitter etc were in their infancy (or their creators were!) and the mechanism for ‘grooming’ was very different.

Yesterday, the BBC reported on how it is today http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12202489

So with the popularity of Social Networking and the faceless abusers having the chance to befriend potential targets via the internet, how has it changed?

How do we manage it going forward?

And just how will it affect the numbers of abused children in the future, now that their abusers have a world of prey at their fingertips?
