The prostitutes in New York City is now peddling his services through the social networking site Facebook after the site ad service Craigslist Erotic Services closed last year. In fact, the prostitutes are getting 25 percent of its customers through Facebook.

Facebook itself does not have specific policies related to prostitution. But, up against all illegal acts. Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said, "We will lift the material, to block her account, and may take further action including legal action brings into the realm of illegal."
