A ‘pedofile’ social media experiment all parents must watch

By | August 14, 2015

We often tell our kids how important it is and the dangers involved when being online, don’t we? I sure hope so! The prankster Coby Persin decided to put online safety to the test, and created an experiment to see how easy it is to lure girls whom that he met on Facebook to meet in person.

The video was uploaded 4 days ago and has over 21 million views. There are currently over 750,000 registered sex offenders in the United States alone, and Coby Persin shows how easy it is (with the parents permission) to meet the girls in person. He pretended to be a 15 year old boy, and chatted with three girls (aged 12 to 14) for a couple of days before suggesting to meet up.

Then he filmed the whole experiment, along with the shock and anger of the girls’ parents attitude over their daughters’ dangerous decisions. See, this is why social media is scary for not only parents, but also for the kids that frequent it.
