MALAYSIA - It appears that some Malaysian Internet users are using Facebook for more than just catching up with old friends.
A new Facebook group, said to be based in Johor Baru, appears to be offering sexual services.
Said to be run by a woman, the Facebook group, in Chinese and loosely translated as "JB Compensated Dating Girls", was created on Sept 9 last year and now has more than 2,400 "likes" or thumbs up from people.
The women involved, some of whom are only 16, apparently provide sexual favours and act as mistresses to any man who can keep them in a lifestyle they are accustomed to, reported Malaysian news website, The Daily Chilli.
The owner of the group, which offers social escort services from young women and teenage girls, claimed to manage more than 40 women.
Each woman is put through a strict filtering process - which wasn't detailed - before their profiles are included in the stable and posted online.
If inquiries about a particular girl are approved, users are then allowed to directly contact their picks to see if the women are interested in return.
None of the women involved seem to consider themselves prostitutes.
