Cubans Just Got WiFi this Year and They Already Figured Out How to Use It to Migrant Safely to the U.S.

Cuban immigrants, who just this year got access to WiFi, have learned to use apps and smartphones to get themselves safely across South America and into the United States. Not kidding.

Cubans have just created a modern-day Underground Railroad through South America using social media.

What are Cubans using to make the journey? Facebook Messenger, mainly.

The digitally-led Cuban migration is proving that social media is powerful enough to cut out illegal and dangerous human smuggling.

Border disputes between South American countries have caused several blocks, but the Cuban people just keep waiting and moving when they can.

Take away? Social media has proven itself worthy of more than just drunk status updates and check-ins to your favorite café…
