Iphone stranger swx chat
There are a few social sites that promote chatting with strangers.Parents should familiarize themselves with those sites so they can recognize if their children are using them.
Here's a Craigslist ad offering a free i Phone 4 and a "very competitive salary" to girls who want to participate (via Clint Ecker).
The app itself is available for i OS and Android and asks users to create a miniature profile by either importing information from Facebook or just punching in a username, email address, password (and, of course, a profile picture)goofy to creepy pretty quickly, with the chatrooms full of abusive language and invitations from strangers to start "chatting in private" - an especially worrying feature given that the sign-up age is just 13 years old and requires no external verification (and users can always choose to hide their age).
The app also offers the chance to browse profiles in your area, and judging by the short bios some users have written (“no nudes plz”; “don’t message me if your [sic] 50”) this feature can be a magnet for creeps.
Educating yourself on the dangers of online stranger encounters is the first step in protecting you kids.
The next step is educating your kids, and that means talking to them about it.
