Default Unanswered: strangers asking me to be friends.

Please help me understand why strangers are asking me to be their friend on WW. I got about 7 new names yesterday when I signed in to WW. I'm afraid that webkinz is no longer safe. Any ideas as to what happened?

Its okay, I wouldn't worry about it. No personal information can be shared. But, if you feel uncomfortable, then just decline them.

On WW there is something called "My Page" It's liek a little page all about your webkinz. When people click on the "Meet Someone New" button they are taken to veiw your "My Page" and can see your username-that's why they are adding you. Don't be scared

The my page section on ww has a thing where you can make new friends and if they search and find your page then they can click add to friends. But this only works if you have set up your my page. You can also turn off the stuff where they can find add you or even find you in the search.

yeah, i wouldnt worry about it. i like having new friends on webkinz. nothing bad can happen, the webkinz filters are too tight. there are only already written messages except for in kinzchat plus. and there's a dictionary for that.

I'm not worried for my self but my daughter is too young to understand the stranger dangers out there. This was the only website I was going to let her use. But now I feel like I've had someone I don't know walk into my house and say "hey you don't mind if I use your phone do you?" One person was very nice to me on WI and sent me a nice card. I sent a gift as a thank you for the card. But I still don't know how people got my WW name.
