Everybody needs their child to not be dangerous. All parents strive to shield their children from every danger that might be lurking around. Among the areas that are the most dangerous to be exact, or is the net, the social networks.
Social networks offer us the chance to to stay in contact with people we need to be in touch with. However, these social networks are often times abused by different kinds of individuals because of their own terrible strategies. One of these social networks is facebook. Many people, especially youngsters don’t know the best way to shield themselves when on such social networks and do not know what to prevent and what to be careful for.
This can be a good example of such case, when her children were left by an unaware mom on Facebook on their own. The storyline goes in this way.
One day, her child got a buddy request from an unknown individual. The little girl accepted the friend request not imagining that something bad can occur. His profile picture was very fine and ensuring.
The mother of the girl was quite exited about what her daughter was achieving at the time and often posted matters about her on Facebook.
This stranger that seemed innocuous then uploaded it to some site where he posted it alongside the next words and had downloaded the graphic:
“Youngblood, American girl. Not even 6 years old! Only 10,000 dollars!”
No one has ever imagined that by uploading a benign image from your child and an image of the school she studies in they could push things. This happened to this girl who one day went to pick on her daughter and found out she was not there. Her daughter was taken away and gone forever.
Even thought the difficult way, this teaches us a lesson that parents should always have control over what their children do or post on social networks, as this can happen to anyone. No parent would enjoy some pedophiles and molesters to download graphics from their kids and use those graphics for his or her own sickening purposes. Also, you should not accept friend requests from people you don’t know and publicly publish an excessive amount of private information about your family or you.
This story should be always kept in mind; as they should do anything to keep their children safe, notably parents shouldn’t forget it. Never let your guard down, never accept friend requests from people that are unknown and strangers and never post images or private information regarding your children. We should keep strangers away from us and our family , right? The same goes for social networks we usually do not like strangers to intrude on our privacy online.
