The internet and the social networks have dark and light sides. This mother learned this lesson in the harder way. Her story can be helpful for many people. Her story is important about the wellbeing of our children.
You have probably already received a friend request from some unknown stranger on Facebook. You have no idea who he is. His profile picture seems decent and he is not looking like some problematic guy. And then, you approve the request without thinking what could go wrong.
You forget this person in just several days because you are occupied with your son or daughter who starts school for the first time. You are very happy with this which makes you to post some pictures from your little student on your Facebook. You write a post under the pictures like “This is a wonderful day! Look how big my baby became!” Then you tag the school in this post and all of this is available for everyone on your Facebook. A simple thing! But this could cause you so much trouble.
But you have no idea what happens next. The person added several days ago can download your daughter’s picture easily and upload it to an online catalogue which is available to hundreds of men around the globe. Under the picture you can see something like:
“Youngblood, American girl. Not even 6 years old! Only $10.000!”
You aren’t aware of the situation that is going on behind your back. One day you are going to pick your daughter from school, but you can’t find her. Your efforts to find her are unsuccessful because no one knows where she is.
You don’t know what happened to her or did she go. This would never happened if you hadn’t approved a friend request from stranger. You can never know if your child’s picture is posted on some catalog of this kind or not. STOP ACCEPTING STRANGERS ON FACEBOOK! Your friends on facebook should be everyone you know, not the unknown ones!
This story should be always on your mind when using Facebook or any other social network. Be careful when you face some stranger on the internet. Don’t accept friend request from people you don’t know. And the most important thing: Don’t post your children’s photos on the social networks! They can always end up on wrong places. Pedophiles always look for pictures like these. You must agree that our private life is not for everyone, even the people you know as well.
Share this story in order to make the people you know aware what could happen if they post the pictures of their kids on the social networks. Who knows, you may prevent a tragedy!
