We all know that here on WI we can ONLY give out things like:
- our 1st names
- 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

It is good to be safe, but you shouldn't even give out first and last names, or even state. Also, on FaceBook, a person can't see your profile until you add them to your friends list. It isn't as bad as you think. If you were on MySpace, and someone asked to be your friend because they can't see your profile, say no. Also, predators can get you by just your first and last names and state. Don't even give out that.

Actually you can see WI's profile without logging in... heres the link if you want to see it ---> WebkinzInsider.Com | Facebook

And on Myspace people can see your profile, it just depends on if you check the option that only lets your friends look at it...

Oh wow... That's easier than a lot of people think about. I myself have a myYearbook account and luckily I didn't put any information on it other than my first name.

Yah! Rep to you.

Everyone thinks "Oh who cares, no online predators are in MY friends list!"

Thankfully I have enough common sense not to have a MySpace/Facebook thing!

Did you know, My Space just kicked out 90, 000 s.ex offenders. The thing I am wondering, how could they let 90,000 offenders on anyway?

Great Point!! A lot of people don't think twice about posting: country, state, first name, middle name, number of siblings, their ages, weather in your area, favorite teams, school colors, and school mascots. I have seen all of these things!
