Final Thought… According to data from Internet World Stats, an estimated 2.9 billion people worldwide are active monthly users of Facebook. Of those 2.9 billion Facebook users, more than 710,000 are from Hawaiʻi, that’s more than 51% of our state’s population of 1.4 million people. With numbers like that, it’s no wonder 1,221 federal, state and local enforcement officials use the social media platform for their investigations, even gleaning evidence from posts to help solve crimes. Enter Stolen Stuff Hawaii, the state’s largest anti-crime group with over 179,000 members on Facebook and Instagram. On the next “WHAT SCHOOL YOU WENT?,” learn what inspired Michael Kitchens to create this incredibly powerful crime-fighting tool and how he’s taken the concept to other cities across the country.
