Of course - yes!)
Confirmed in practice.
One acquaintance is sitting under Article 228 and their phone is actively wandering from hand to hand. I watch it online every day. And they also manage to start novels!
I can tell you about my personal experience. I wrote comments in one group about literature. A couple of minutes later, a young guy writes to me and starts asking questions about books. I answered, in fact, nothing suspicious. But he had a pseudonym, groups about convicts, statuses on the wall about cops and thieves' life. A little later, he said a couple of compliments and how kind I am (that day I was really in a good mood and answered him in a friendly way). And he admitted that he is now in prison, they all drink there, and he does not drink for a healthy lifestyle. He wrote with terrible mistakes. He continued the story by saying that he had an unhappy love the other day: a girl very similar to me.
We corresponded like this for a couple of days, everything was fine. I even believed him for a minute. that he's really normal. Then he said his real name, age, where he was from and for what reason he was sitting. He threw off the website on which they wrote about his escape from prison. He was a very handsome young man, he turned out to be 3 years older than me, and I was 20. He constantly reminded me, how good I am and I would have married. Obviously, I was not led to this.
The next day, something happened to his mood and he began to accuse me that I was his unfortunate love, that I was a fake and trying to deceive him (although he wrote to me first). A bunch of obscene language fell down. An hour later he apologized, said that the devil had beguiled. Then I corresponded purely out of interest, what he would do next. A day later, he wrote to me again and began to accuse me for the same reason. In messages, I twisted my finger at my temple and said that he needed to be treated, brought it into an emergency.
Six months later I cleaned up the list. And then after a while someone writes to me again under a different name. I pretended not to know who he was and brought it into emergency. After that, no one bothered.
Conclusion: I don't know how everything is there, that some of them are sick in the head.
It depends where. I have many friends who have been and are in prison, and I myself have fallen into the "clutches of justice", have been in these places. In Belarus, for example, this is generally impossible. It's very strict in our prisons. I can't even imagine that there was such an opportunity in a Belarusian prison. In short, it's better to break the law in Russia :)
They sit, and even actively get to know the ladies and bred them for money and parcels. This is a kind of business. They knock on a personal note to some lonely ladies, more often of Balzac's age, or to young girls not burdened with intellect, and they begin to sing to them about their love at first sight, about the fact that only she understands him, and he has never met such as she ... To himself, of course, he says that he was jailed by mistake, the cops are shameful wolves and all that, also a popular option - stood up for the girl, jailed for grave bodily ... Well, in short, either he is never guilty, or noble hero. Also, all this is complemented by his own characteristic as an exceptionally decent person: he does not drink, and does not smoke, and will never raise his hand against a woman. All this is abundantly flavored with compliments and the desire to marry, and that's it, the lady is ready. Regular replenishment of telephone accounts, multi-kilogram trunks and even photos of erotic content, which a decent prisoner generously shares with his cellmates, are provided. In VK, by the way, there are a lot of groups of similar content, where convicts gather, and those who want to meet them, and already waiting ladies, discussing the weight and content of their trunks as an equivalent of their love ... Well, in short, something like that.
They not only sit there and post photos of themselves, their "lads" with the thematic captions "Hello Brothers!" / Dinner party for the lads "/" And I wish my guys corrupt judges and piz *** lawyers "and so on, pictures with thoughtful quotes, but they can also" please "you with their Instagram likes. It looks scary, to be honest ..)) And there are also people who like the photos of these very prisoners. It's generally amazing. I wonder what the message is? "Dude, don't worry, all the way, cool photo, catch the like!"?!?))) in general, yes. Internet for everyone.
They sit, and even tweets lead to 22k readers. Take a look at https://twitter.com/kass_my_ass. As I understand it, bringing the phone to the zone is not a problem, but giving a bribe to the FSIN so that they would not be taken away, and even more so. Above, we remembered fiberboard, people even play games in the zone.
of course. a friend sits at 228, actively contacts, youtube and so on. etc. etc. I know for sure that some, even behind bars, manage to engage in fraud or to settle their dark affairs. in short, there would be money.
Yes, they use the Internet and sit on social networks and dating sites. This is not bad, because they are socially isolated, cut off from the world, and the Internet helps them communicate with the world, be up to date with the news. At the place of administration of places of detention, I would officially provide prisoners with Internet access (this is the ability to control them!), But I would block certain sites
Of course they are. If this topic is interesting, I can advise the twitter of a person under the pseudonym Kass. It was closed for 11 years a couple of years ago. He is very active on twitter.

If you have money, you can drag anything into prison, even AK) a joke, of course, but not far from reality. For example, one Lineage2 player Andrey, better known as dvp, while serving a sentence, played quite successfully in the Atlanta browser. Of course, everything depends on the administration, as they say "in each hut its own rattles." The same situation was written in the books of Andrei Mironov "The Immured" and "The Motherland named after Putin", where people who stood tough at will were driven through the navel and so on. So, having a laptop and a 3g modem is a matter of money
Of course they are, and many even earn. For example, they send out a scam like "to confirm you in the lottery, send a number from SMS to this number" or sell goods with a prepayment on Avito
