EU to Launch Social Network for Refugees

Funny story written by lukejay

The European Union is set to launch a social network for refugees fleeing to Europe from Syria, to help migrants communicate with the country in which they wish to reside.

Daily vast numbers of refugees cross European borders in the hope that a better life awaits them, the majority seeking solace in Germany causing mass train delays from Austria to Munich.

In an attempt to aid migrants in their search for a new home and end public transport delays, European Union officials announced they will launch a social network called MigratED.

The social network is specifically designed for migrants to form connections with one another and European countries that will allow for mutually beneficial relationships in the real world.

MigratED will allow users to:

 Create detailed personality and professional profiles and biographies.

 Upload images of themselves and the country they are fleeing from. European countries will be able to post graphics of the housing available to migrants.

 Plan journeys to and across European countries via public transport.

 Post regular status updates.

 European countries will be able to list low pay work opportunities and search for refugees they want to fill those positions.

 Send applications for refuge to European countries, and receive a response within three to six months.

 Receive notification and updates about applications.

 Research the countries open to refugees and the benefits austerity allows their leaders.

 'Congratulate' one another if they are granted residence within the EU.

European Union officials state that the social network will allow them to 'identify genuine refugees' and identify 'terrorist infiltrators.'

MigratED has been applauded by many European leaders as an innovative solution to the migration crisis, that will allow each nation to fulfil their humanitarian and moral duty to refugees.

It is unknown how refugees will be provided with the computers or smart phones needed to access the social network or when it will launch.
