Whether it’s video, text or photo that you’re sending, it’s best to think twice about what you share digitally.When it comes to friendships and relationships it’s a brave new world thanks to the Internet.Although some sites use suspicious keyword detection and different ways to check people’s identity, it’s still hard to know if the person you’re talking to is who they say are.Remember, people often make out they are something different online than who they are in real life, and they may not be the age or even the gender they say they are.The sites are not monitored on an individual basis but instead operate under a complaint system.Online dating has been the butt of a lot of jokes over the years, but it’s changed a lot since the days of lonely hearts message boards that only existed in the shady corners of the Internet.Unfortunately these types of events are not just stories they really happen and young teen internet users are at the greatest risk.Online social and dating sites continue to grow at a rapid rate over the last few years and there is an increased risk a teen will fall victim to an online predator.
Free friendship building sites rarely screen users.
It’s good to be careful about how you share your location on any social media links.
As well as adult dating sites, there are also plenty of teen-only sites too.
If you ever meet that person, never go alone the first time, and so on.
It's dangerous but it doesn't mean you can't keep the danger at bay if you're smart. Looked at it before, not for dating purposes but seemed was full of fake profiles and older men.... I didn't meant that comment in a nasty way, just so you know.
