This infographic shows how facebook is being used in criminal and legal investigations; whether it is being used to solve crimes, or whether it is cause for the crime itself. In 2010, 7,454 calls from police were related to social media. Facebook’s ability to monitor its users means that crimes are often solved by monitoring what is posted. For example, a man used facebook to try and hire a hit-man to kill a woman who accused him of rape; he now faces 11-22 years in prison.
