A guy/girl sends you a friend request. You don’t know him or her, but he or she has got a cute profile picture, so you accept his or her friend request.
It’s your baby girl’s first day of school. She looks SO cute in her new outfit you just have to take a picture and put it on Facebook so all your friends and family can see.
You’re so excited dropping her off that you ‘Check in’ to her school on FB saying
‘I can’t believe how big she’s gotten. Time sure flies. One proud momma/daddy right here’.
Meanwhile, the mystery guy/girl whose friend request you hurriedly accepted earlier this morning is saving that picture you posted of your daughter in her cute new outfit to his or her phone and texting it to 60 other grown men or women across the world with the caption –
‘ British Girl; Age 5.
Brown Hair. Blue Eyes.
Available to the highest bidder’
Not only did you provide a picture of your little girl to a child trafficker, you’ve handed him/her the name and exact location of her school on a silver cyber platter.
You go to pick her up at 3:00 in the afternoon, but she’s nowhere to be found.
Little do you know, your precious baby girl was sold to a 43 years old pedophile before you even stepped foot into that school this morning, and now she’s on her way to Possibly Portugal with a bag over her head, confused, terrified and crying because a man /woman she’s never seen before picked her up from school, and now she doesn’t know where her parents are, where she’s going, or what’s gonna happen to her.
Moral of the story is:
STOP ADDING STRANGERS ON YOUR PERSONAL FACEBOOK
posting everything (especially where your child is concerned) about your life on Facebook. (Minimal posts with caution are ok)
Avoid keeping children’s pictures as profile picture.
Please share it for the sake of all kids and parents.
