Social Media Rape Experiment Scares Teen Straight

Technology is always something kids try to “out-know” their parents on, however Coby Persin is changing that with his YouTube videos.

The worst fear of the internet a parent has lies in the unknown world of social media.  Even though sites like Facebook have age restrictions, teens cleverly alter their settings and engage in activities with strangers unaware of who’s at the other end of the computer screen.

In Coby’s latest video “The Dangers Of Social Media (Child Predator Social Experiment)” he interacts with young girls ages 12-14 (with parental consent of course) with a fake page he created to appear younger.  You won’t believe how these teen girls engaged with who they thought was a new friend they met online.

Coby’s video (above) already has over 10 million views in just one day of being uploaded and his YouTube channel has over 1 million subscribers.

This social media experiment raised concerns for parents and should be thoroughly taught with the youth.  Predators do prey on these sites where kids and teens are highly accessible.  Back in 2010 a 33 year old U.K. man brutally raped and murdered a 17-year-old girl he met on Facebook.

Then there’s the “dark underbelly of Facebook,” a community of members who blatantly promote and share child pornography using their personal Facebook accounts and Facebook groups. To be sure, while the content can be found on Facebook, it was posted by third-party users of the site and violates Facebook’s terms of use.

Even though Facebook is cracking down on loop holes predators are able to wiggle through, there’s no denying that they still exist.  Given the fact that in Coby’s video, he easily lured the girls directly to him just with using a fake profile page.
