This machine stops rapists. But to work, you have to actually use it.

The Predator Alert Tool for Facebook helps survivors of sexual violence connect with other survivors in their social networks and start conversations with friends about consent.

Up to 85% of rapes are committed by someone the survivor already knows. And nearly 70% of American adults use Facebook. This means it’s likely that a survivor of sexual violence is Facebook friends, or friends-of-friends, with the person who attacked them.

The Predator Alert Tool is a free app you can add to your Facebook account.

Emphasis added. Think about it for a minute. No, seriously, think about it and all that it implies.
