I agree with this thread 100%!!! There are so many bad people and sometimes I wonder why are there such mean people!! Some people need to be way more careful!! That is why I don't have a myspace or facebook. Well anyway good job for bringing this up!!!

I agree, you never know who is watching. Personally, I would never post who I was on that facebook account, especially since you can see someone's school name on there and full name even if you aren't friends with them. Better safe than sorry. very good point! [rep]

you have really outdone yourself this time, my friend!

this thread is awesome...kind of surprising to see just how exposed we are. i like that you thought this up..could open the eyes of any WI member that have posted info on other sites of course...if there were online predators on WI, they could easily do this, though i assume that myspace is already crawling with them...besides, i personally would not post i was from WI if my parents ever give me myspace back...my firends would laugh xD

great job!

Dotdot... you always amaze me with how your help out everyone here in WI, keep us safe, welcome those who are new, answer questions to those seeking help. And you always remember the people you meet, offering smiles and kind words. You are such a great asset to WI, and this thread is just another reason I am so happy to have you here.

We all know that here on WI we can ONLY give out things like:

- our Middle names
- the state we live in

But I recently found out that WI has a Facebook account...
and there people from WI come and post things like "Hey, I'm (username) from WI!"
and whats "bad" about Facebook you ask?

It gives out this info:
- our 1st names
- our last names
- personal pictures

from there on an Online Predator could take your 1st and last name and search you up on Myspace (which I'm guessing most teens and some adults have)
And what do they get?

It gives this info out:
- more personal pictures
- age
- city
and sometimes even your phone #...

Now they have all the info they need to find you... they just go to Yellowpages, type in your city and last name... BINGO! They gotcha


So, you see how easy it was for me (a kid) to figure this out? Think of how easy it would be for an adult 2x smarter than me... So I just wanna warn you guys to think before decide what you want to give out on Facebook/Myspace/Youtube and all those other online resoures...

Stay safe, and thank you very much for reading
Woah! You are VERY smart to figure that out!! I'm pretty sure no one wants themselves to be kidnapped! Rep rep rep!!
