Social media sites are like a huge, virtual playground for people all throughout the world. Like most playgrounds, they offer very little security and are basically open to anyone. Out there, in those public play areas, you can sit and watch as your children play, but you can’t choose nor stop others from playing there too, right? You wouldn’t know if you’re sitting and watching next to a pedophile or some other pervert. And online, if these “perps” wanted to create a fictitious name, age, and personality–they can. They can be whoever they want to be and you won’t even know.
In another social experiment facilitated by “What Would You Do?”, they presented the dangers of the internet in a very clever and realistic manner. They set up a meeting between a very pretty 16-year-old girl and a 42-year-old man and made it appear like they’ve just met for the first time after chatting online. The young girl pretended to be shocked when she found out that they weren’t of the same age like he claimed during their chats. The actors spoke loud enough for other people in the cafe to hear their conversation.
What do you think the customers did when they heard him persuade the teenager to “go home” with him?

This video should serve as a reminder that there are plenty of online predators out there and we, especially the minors, should be very cautious when meeting people via the internet.
