Facebook accused of promoting syphilis

    In the UK, Facebook has been accused of allegedly contributing to the spread of syphilis. This was stated by the head of the Teesside Health Department Peter Kelly. According to him, in recent years in the north-east of England, where Facebook is extremely popular, the number of syphilis diseases has quadrupled.


    Peter Kelly is sure that Facebook, as well as other social networks, provided people with a new affordable opportunity to find a random partner for one night.

    A spokesman for Facebook responded to Peter Kelly's statement. He advised users to take "necessary precautions" when meeting with "friends" from the social network.
