Beware of what you post in cyber space.

I was listening to WJFK radio station the other morning and the “Sports Junkies” were talking about how someone they knew would find women online.

Apparently this guy would watch daytime television, a show such as “Family Feud”. He would see an attractive female contestant and she would have a name tag showing her first name. He easily found out her last name as she was playing with her family.

Knowing that her name was, for instance: Debbie Martin and knowing that the Martin family told the host of the show that they were from Atlanta, he would then go to “Myspace” of “Facebook” and look up: Debbie Martin from Atlanta, Georgia. he would send her a “friend’s request”. The D.J.’s were not condoning what he did, they actually viewed him as a pervert, but they were saying how easy it is these days for people to access your information.

We all need to be aware of what we put out there, but parents of younger children need to be extra vigilant as we can see how many people get constantly caught on “To catch a Predator”. It is even more frightening when they question these predators and discover that they are teachers, law enforcement officers and doctors. The very people that society believes they can trust.
