Tue, Nov 20, 2018, 12:28 PM
The family of a 16-year-old girl in South Sudan auctioned her off for marriage in a Facebook post, where she was traded for 500 cows, 3 cars and 10,000 US dollars. Facebook was eventually made aware of the post and removed it from the site 15 days after the original post date. The Facebook spokesperson said that posts, ads, pages or groups related to any form of human trafficking is not allowed on Facebook. A woman activist said the Facebook auction reminds of slave markets.
