The Dangers Of Social Media (Child Predator Experiment)

Video taken from the channel: Coby Persin

Predators look for teens on Tinder. Teens are only supposed to be able to connect with other teens on Tinder. But, obviously, people can lie about their age. Tinder serves as a great place for predators to prey on underage teens.

You may consider using parental control software for closer monitoring of teens’ mobile device use. In the case of the app Yubo, which was previously named Yellow, there are enough concerns that some schools have sent letters to parents warning them about the app. Should you be concerned?

Here’s what you need to know. So, just how worried should parents be? Rosette Pambakian, a spokeswoman for Tinder, told The Huffington Post that adults and minors cannot interact on the app. “To protect young users, those between the ages of 13 to 17 can only connect with other users in that same age range on Tinder,” she wrote in an email.

Parents all over the world are concerned about the safety of their kids. Even though the App makes sure that the 18+ tinder is not visible to the Teenage Tinder and adults don’t get to see Teenager Tinder, the false registrations are causing a problem for kids. Location is Revealed. A Queensland mother has slammed Schoolies organisers for encouraging teenage revellers to hook up at their events using Tinder. Libby Marshall’s daughter is graduating Year 12.

Tinder was one of them until recently, with 7% of its users aged between 13 and 17 (outnumbering 35 to 44-year-olds). Tinder is officially 18+ now, but as most parents are well aware, age limits aren’t foolproof. If you discover your child has a Tinder profile, what should you know – and what can you do? First things first: what is Tinder?

‘Middle school principals and middle school parents say that their young children are using it’ ‘Young kids are dealing with self-esteem issues sometimes and if someone likes them that’s going. You can tell them you’re using Tinder or doing anything else that they’re trying to prevent, or you can not tell them; your choice. Freedom is not given, it’s taken, and by your age it should be taken for granted. Your parents can’t possibly be controlling you at this stage.

Why Parents Should Worry: The app is rated ages 17+ but Tinder’s privacy policy allows teens as young as 13 to register (the app connects with Facebook — which is also technically for ages 13+ — to pull in photos for users’ Tinder profiles). Tinder helps people find others in their geographic location and allows users to view each others’ photos and start instant messaging once both people. The meet-up app Yubo described as “tinder for teenagers” has parents concerned about their children’s activities online. Kids as young as 10 are using the app, which enables them to meet with complete strangers.

A new meet-up app called Yubo is popular with teenagers, who use it as a Tinder substitute. (9news).

The child and parent should also agree that the parent will view the profile on occasion, at least until the child is in his or her later teens.

  • Aunt and uncle: Trust me honey I’ll help you with anything!
    Daughter: No….
    Aunt: Why not?
    Uncle: Yeah, why not?
    Daughter: shows video
    Aunt and uncle: They did this (to her parents) You son of a biscuit!

  • Bro that second dad saying “we already lost your mother what would I do if anything happened to you” killed me. As a parent that’s your worst nightmare

  • Look at all those people in the comments believing that talking to STRANGERS online is normal? You must be a new kind of idiot! The girl was about to enter a stranger’s van but yeah, normal shit! She got what she signed up for. Now at least she won’t be texting with strangers and stay talking with her friends and real life people. Her parents did a good job opening her eyes and the eyes of other kids.

  • My mom’s search history: purses my dad’s search history: the band Slipknot my sister’s Search history:things to do with your little sister my search history: Wattpad

  • Bruh the parents literally got in a white van with strangers and they yelling at the kids obviously if the parents are that foolish the kids are too

  • im 13 years old but i already know not to do this, if these parents had a punishment for them they should take there phone away for a few days

  • The man almost gave me a heart attack these girls need a slap and education sometimes is the girl fault they get kidnapped and the second one bring me tears already lose her mother i feel for their parents I am 15 years girl must be smart to who they talk alone or never talk to dat person you don’t know we need God and pray for our kids or we slap some sense in them I am Jamaican girl I understand I mom and dad taught me these stuff for my sister and I ������������

  • Such stupid parents. The reason for this is good, but the way it is done, is so damn dumb. this is 2 years earlier, so hopefully she has managed to move out and started to study.

  • If I was on Tinder, I would need to talk to the guy for a week while FaceTiming him and really getting to know the guy THEN I could meet up with them in a public place in case something happens ; like out for dinner or a movie theatre and so on

  • I watch this daily! I don’t want to get away from my parents I have snap and insta but I never add people I don’t know if someone came up to me and said I’m your moms friend she told me to pick you up! I’ll run for my life I swear����

  • These daughters are doing what their Brain are doing but not their heart, I dont think they care about their parents. Cause the family watches news like they said but I just think the daughter was just like never care at all when they know it’s dangerous

  • Did they ever try…having an honest conversation with their kid? Maybe building up a relationship of trust, understanding, empathy, and communication? No? Right right, looking for a way to prove she’s untrustworthy by embarrassing her on national television is the way to go.

  • Am i the only one who WOULDNT DK THIS like im prepared even of this happened. I got my chancla,belt, and takis. I was trained for this since 5 year olds

  • The parents clearly should not have trolled her like that. I mean MEETING UP with a stranger is SO NOT OK, but texting and chatting…i believe there is no risk in that as long as you don’t share VERY PERSONAL details. But like clearly that is a pretty stupid child like getting in a VAN with a stranger! Unbelievable.

  • Wait hold up lil why are people mad at the parents, if this was a real situation they could’ve lost their daughter like this. Imbeciles

  • 0:33‘ For me personally just this is working incredibly well → Dantasguides Added a lot of resᴏᴜʀᴄᴇs to my account an hour ago. εξαιρετική λύση για όλους τους ανθρώπους

  • If I had kids I well not let them used any apps not tinder or Facebook or not even instagram is no more privacy they keep posting nudes pictures everyday

  • Wow kids today are so easy to be targeted for trafficking, killed, or pimped. But this is the kids of today and some ignorant parents who are like oh I have be the cool parent or be so different from my parents because I am traumatized by my childhood. But in actually your parents should slap some sense into you because not parenting is the worst thing you can do. Smh

  • I get their point about meeting people and going into his van which a guy who she’s never met but to catfish her: how to loose your kids trust in 7 minutes ��

  • Okay so the mom did say “you promised me you would never do this again.” So she has done stuff like this before! I was legit wondering why someone like this would do this (either staged or she was just that dumb) and it was because she has done this before. With that being said why the heck would the parents allow this to happen again!? Like I get it, this is humiliating and a good learning tool, but you parents allowed this to occur again!!!! Like come on you can’t even say this was her fault, y’all allowed it to happen because you didn’t teach her properly that this stuff is dangerous (this is coming from a kid who actually hasn’t been always taught the right things by parents)

  • they should blur her face and change her name, i mean what is she gonna do at school when that one kid finds out and tells the whole school?

  • naw cause they wrongthey didn’t relize what they doingnow she gonna have trust issues about who she talks to and probably make her scared to make new friends (mostly guys) cause she’ll think its someone they set up to talk to her

  • What yall mad because they dont want her going with random 40 year old men posing as little boys their age; It’s called discipline.

  • Look if they were posing as a guy that was like twice her age wanting to do inappropriate things to her, then yes, go off. But this is ridiculous

  • Thats not kidnappingu kinda said “hey imma kidnap you with my pretty white van, u could also see my beard before u got in my car, so im not 15:> but hop in anyways!” its the kids fault for be fucking stupid

  • Im sorry I would not fall for this, and half of us here wouldn’t for the reason being is because gen z has so much anxiety and they would know how to prevent them from being a catfish

  • The parents are doing Right thing in the extremely wrong way,now the girl not believe on strangers after this incidence + also not trust on her own parents….

  • Like I get that u shouldn’t get into a strangers car BUT WHY WOULD U WANT TO CATFISH UR DAUGHTER ur trust with her is gone her anxiety has went up god teenagers are going through so much stress and parents done see that and now ur putting this on ur poor daughter the worst parent award goes to u guys�� ��

  • It’s a pity that this piece was presented entirely from the perspective of women and girls. Surely parents of young teen sons have just as much reason to be concerned about the fact that adults can speak dirty to their kids and meet with them under false pretences?

  • Yeah let me hit on my daughter as a fake account, gain her trust, and expose her to millions of people for it. Honestly…I find this repulsive. You might be “concerned” for your daughter but this just screams emotional trauma. If my parents did this id no longer want anything to do with them.

  • They do realize that this is a trap specially targeting THEIR DAUGHTER right?!
    What the hell, who does this?
    I’m pretty sure the creeps the daughter should be warmed about are her horrible parents and all the mental health disorders she’ll probably develope after this.

  • Pretty sure the whole thing is staged and the daughter is in on it. Besides the bad over dramatic acting the “social media specialist” is Elliot Morgan. Elliot is a writer, comedian and actor. He currently is part of the comedy group ValleyFolk. They write and do their own comedy skits. They won a comedy skits show on NBC. Elliot also hosted and wrote for Sourcefed with Phillip Defranco.

  • literally just sends a picture of a generic beach, the guy not even in the picture
    “it’s crazy how predators can create their own perfect world to lure their victims in”

  • Dad with the red shirt in the video of parents seeing their kids’ browse history: “Are u still lookin’ up Spongebob things?”

    Also that same dad: ” HOW TO MURDER YOUR WIFE ” ������

  • As soon as she started crying that part annoyed me because she was perfectly fine with getting a car with a old man but as soon as her parents come “haha crying go brr”

  • My dad would KILL ME if my dad caught me replying to strangers private messages… he will ground me for months, take my phone away untill im 17

  • lol that not just a happy thats a happy face with love in the eye i almost died���� tf this are normal texting

    but i guess getting into the van wasnt that ok

  • trendy, with-it, fresh cut swag

    I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    Also, did they really all need to sit around a circle and debate over how to have a regular conversation �� “whats up” yeah, good one

  • 1. The fuck is wrong with these parents
    2. You should make aware of your daughter of the dangers instead of you being the dangers yourself
    3. The girl will probably have trust issues

  • After my little brother showed mom how to use the internet i found out that she searched my name and my big bros name on Google��i didn’t think she thought we were famous ��

  • Excuse me, a pretetor would ask for age, and pics of nudes and feet. They would not really put happy faces ethier they would put wink emojis and tongue emojis. She did not do anything wrong except going to the park and I think you should of done a family meeting in private not do a terrible cathfishing thing on tlc

  • She was ready to get into a van with a total stranger. This was no longer just texting a cute guy. Do you know that this is actually the girl and her real parents or is this an example of just how easy it is for a total stranger to gain a kid’s trust.

  • Just seeing how the parents react is heartbreaking, but it’s heartwarming to see how much they love their children, a good portion of parents these day’s don’t do that.

  • this makes me so fucking pissed these fucking boomers are just out here catfishing their daughter and embarrassing her on live television this is so fucking disgusting these parents can die and no one should go to their fucking funeral

  • her parents sound disappointed as fuck rather than actually worried. loving parents would say:
    “hey! it’s okay, since this is fake, but please consider that these types of situations are extremely dangerous. you are not in trouble. we care about you and your safety, and i’m so glad you are okay.”
    then again normal parents wouldn’t do this.

  • This is so problematic, this show says the place this girl lives, shows her face, and lets predators know she is more than happy to meet strangers online. If something happens to this girl I really hope this show and the parents are held partially accountable. Disgusting.

  • Well, the parents and kid are both bad people. The parents exposed her life and ruined it. But the daughter got herself ‘kidnapped’. Like. No offence but who is that dumb to fall for that?
    Edit: A lot of peoplehumans are stupid

  • Now their daughter won’t wanna tell her anything or ask them for advice, if they had open conversation with their daughter instead that will be so much better

  • could’ve made the fake man a 50 year old so she could deny it bc he’s obviously old and creepy not a teen who’s shooting his shot ����

  • STOP! Plz read this!!! Ok I don’t know why everyone is standing up for the girl, this is a good “prank” I guess you could call it because what if her parents didn’t do this thing and then she was actually put in this kinda real life situation, she wouldn’t know because she had never learned! And I don’t mean to freak people out but this happens every day! And the people are like no I’m to smart to do stuff like that, or no I would never do that! Another reason why I’m so passionate about this is because this almost happened to my cousin! We where at the park and then she went to the bathroom without telling anyone and this guy offered her gum, then he said he also has suckers but he had to get them in because they where in his car, then he said that if she wanted to she could come with him and pick out the one she wanted. This could happen to anyone so please PLEASE stay carful and be safe!

  • The ratio of kids not practicing safety is too scary… I started watching Coby for his big heart and humor… this has me questioning everything about how my kids would react��

  • Omg people stop commenting so much comments of how bad her parents are.Because I can’t like them all.����������������������������������

  • So before people meet they should be required to scan their id, and in a safe manner. So their need to be safety measures imposed for all users of this app.

  • this should be done to every parent who thinks that their children dont break a plate, when they fall asleep or arent home or left alone.. the reality of things is another all and each of the girls in this video were ready so that they could take them somewhere (motel) this reflects the stupidity of this generation and the easy that they can be tricked because in their minds they think that they are smarter than older people or their own parents the truth that we all know is another.

  • if my parents did this to me, i would lose trust in them and probably either hide in my room for the rest of my life or run away from home

  • que my reporter voice*

    ‘I could go buy a police uniform online, at no point, does anyone check I am a indeed a policemen I could then go out into the community and…..’

    And so? That’s called freedom. Even to do crime.

    This is such shit, it’s one of those stories that only gets traction with people who think the internet is some sort of special case network. Why don’t you stop the phone companies from connecting calls or the postal service for sending letters from adults pretending be teenagers.

  • To be honest, this whole thing is the parents fault. For not raising her properly, with ya know, PRECAUTIONS.
    They gave her so much freedom so she’s taking advantage of that at a young age. To a point where, since she was never told “hey, don’t trust strangers online” her naivete takes up like 80% of her brain so she has no suspicion for ANYONE.
    I mean, this should be pretty damn obvious. Instead of “I thought she was smarter than this” it should be “i should’ve raise her better”

  • I searched ‘how long can a cat last in a 90 degree house’

    Having a temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit or above is too hot for most cats and may lead to heatstroke (hyperthermia)…. The answer depends on the breed and age of the cat but generally a temperature of more than 90 Fahrenheit is too hot for most cats.

  • See the thing about the internet is that whatever you put on it, it stays forever. This girl will remember this for the rest of her life and no doubt lose trust in her parents

  • I want an update, I wanna know how quick she cut them outta her life lmao. Yeesh

    this poor girl, She made mistakes but the way her parents are.. I have the feeling they dont talk to her like an adult and truly explain the dangers. They just decided a TV show and shattering her trust.

    Shes very shy which tends to happen when parents publicly humiliate their children often. This also makes her an easier target because she’s less likely to speak up in the future if someone does something inappropriate..

    Shes so used to being publicly shamed that shed be to afraid to call attention to the situation when danger does arise.

  • Hang on, why was the dad so angry with the first girl? She did the right thing by meeting the person firstly in an open park with loads of people around, so you can check if they’re legit and they can’t try anything because you’re, again, in an open park with people around. She also said “who are you” and kept her distance.
