Thanks in no small part to the popularity of social media (including Facebook and Twitter, as well as apps like Snapchat), those perpetrating abuse against the elderly and vulnerable in nursing homes, long-term care facilities, memory care residences and assisted living facilities are finding a new audience - and a new way of getting caught.
