Here's why you monitor your kid's social media activity:

In a nutshell... 19 yr old guy facing 29 counts for sexually assaulting 14 girls (some as young as 12) he met via facebook... and they're seeking more victims. But hey.... their privacy was respected.

And the countdown to people saying "That will never happen to me because I'm so smart when I use FB" begins in 5...4...3...

Each and everyone of those girls had to of talked to someone they didn't know IRL and met up with him.

I CAN say itll never happen to me because I don't talk or add people I don't know IRL and I would NEVER meet up with someone I didn't know.

When looking for and trying to find roommates and using craigslist, I take TG with me.

So no nothing like that will ever happen to me because I'm not some stupid ass whos going to meet up with someone from Facebook.

Whatever, yes me TXT was the first to say it.

BUT HONESLTY GOD DAMN.....
How hard is it to JUST SAY NO?

Really I don't add people I don't know and I would NEVER meet up with someone I didn't know from facebook. That kind of stuff creeps me out.
I can EASILY say I will NEVER get assaulted by someone on facebook that I do not know.

ITS NOT HARD TO BE SMART!

We're not talking about adults here, we're talking about young teens/tweens. Quit insinuating yourself in here. It's not always all about you.

Dew started it.
She even said people were going to say that, she expected people here to say it.
So, hop off my friend.

LOL....Now SS, some posters simply make EVERYthing about them, don't they? IS there anyone else? No, I don't think so, at least no one who actually counts, right? We are talking about young children here right? Soooo aw, never mind, I'll just say PINKIE for now.

You are just so snarky.
"And the countdown to people saying "That will never happen to me because I'm so smart when I use FB" begins in 5...4...3..."
That is exactly what Dew said, she was the one who EXPECTED someone HERE to say something.

Either way, whether it was THEN or NOW, I never have been stupid enough to think oh hey why don't I meet this strange person from the internet who I have no idea if they are a mass murdering butt rapist or not.

So my 15 year old self was stupid enough either.


Also wtf does pinkie mean?
