In this day and age almost everybody uses social networks like Facebook,Twitter and Instagram.
If you are not using one of them then you are probably living on the moon!
Most people opt to use the most popular network which is Facebook and most of the time you are not fully sure how private your account is and who see’s exactly what you post.
Some people do not realize the dangers of being on Facebook and sometimes they often accept friend requests from people they do not know.
Below is a story that was posted and Facebook that recently went viral. It’s very important that everyone reads this story and take heed to the warning.
The post was made by an ex police officer and she wanted to reveal this information to the public.
A guy sends you a friend request. You don’t know him, but he’s got a cute profile picture, so you accept his 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 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 phone and texting it to 60 other grown men across the world with the caption –
‘American Female. Age 5.
Brown Hair. Black Eyes.
Not only did you provide a picture of your little girl to a child trafficker, you’ve handed him the name and exact location of her school on a silver cyber platter. You go to pick her up at 3:00 this 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 off campus this morning, and now she’s on her way to South Africa with a bag over her head, confused, terrified and crying because a man 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.
STOP ADDING STRANGERS ON FACEBOOK and STOP posting everything about your life on Facebook.
People do not realize how many people are out there that are looking to hurt your child. Thousands of children are kidnapped everyday and many of them are sold through the black market and then smuggled into other countries.
We can help stop this by making this subject popular online and making all parents aware of these dangers.
Please do the following
Don’t accept friend requests from people you don’t know
Avoid keeping children’s pictures as profile picture.
Don’t check in online when you are with your children or you are dropping them off somewhere.
