However, with the good inevitably comes the bad - namely how social media can have a detrimental impact on our children.

According to News.com.au, the young girl, who suffers from anxiety disorder and can not be named due to her age, befriended convicted killer Sean Price, 39, on the social media app last October.

This ever-contentious topic has risen its head once again with reports of a teenage girl from Sydney's North Shore allegedly being lured to the United States by a man for sex via Snacphat.

The teenager was taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for treatment following consultation with the Anti-Slavery Unit at the University of Technology, Sydney.

Homeland Security agents received a tip-off from Australian authorities on May 11 the girl, who had been reported missing by her parents, was believed to be in Queens.

Last month the girl, described in court documents as "Jane Doe", flew to Los Angeles and Price flew to LA from NY to meet her, according to authorities.

Senate Intel Committee asks Comey to testify, seeks documents
Senator Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat said that the invitation signed by chairman Richard Burr, has been sent to Comey. Comey had testified exactly 10 years ago in the Senate about his famous hospital-room showdown with former U.S.

The raid on Price's house occurred on May 11, the same day Australian authorities alerted USA police.

Price has been charged with a number of offences including third degree rape.

A teenage girl says she was kept as a sexual slave in a Sydney house before she was able to escape and alert authorities, sparking an investigation into human trafficking and sexual servitude.

Specialist detectives from the NSW Police Sex Crimes Squad have also formed Strike Force Stockall to investigate the circumstances surrounding her ordeal.

39 year old Sean Price has a long criminal history, including criminally negligent homicide for the death of a passenger in a auto crash, and has been charged with third degree rape, and transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

Brooklyn Federal Magistrate Judge Viktor Pohorelsky denied Price bail, despite Price offering the house he shared with his mother as surety.
