DID YOU KNOW
Did you know that anonymous chatting with strangers has been an emerging trend among teenagers nowadays? The advent of technology, internet, and the easy access to different websites has surely paved the way for the dramatic change in social media consumption. According to the statistics presented by GuardChild, 96% percent of teenagers regularly spend an ample amount of time on social networking applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blog sites, especially in the Northern part of America. They eat Facebook for breakfast, so to speak. However, nowadays, teenagers are now veering towards anonymous chatting with strangers simply because they feel incredibly free from pressure and most especially, judgment. Inasmuch as it offers a sense of excitement and thrill, anonymous chatting is a double-edged sword. On one hand, anonymity allows you to virtually experience the no-holds-barred conversation with someone—you can be who you really are or who you want to be—and it lets you broaden your world and network. Eventually, a simple chat can blossom into something much deeper—friendship, dates, or even business partners! After all, social media applications are now becoming business platforms. On the other hand, the danger lies on the inappropriate content a chat could contain---sexual advances from more than 500,000 predators, identity theft, and cyber bullying—that could lead to possible psychological traumas to all users. So to everyone, especially to the tweens and teens out there, always be cautious in giving out personal details—or just don’t.
