SHIVANI GHURA In the excitement and enthusiasm of showing and sharing their lifestyles on social media, many families are underestimating and overlooking the risks they are exposed to. The post-modern societies are characterised by technology. Technology and the internet shape our culture and identity.
Sharing cute babies’ pictures is now a trend. A trend launched by celebrities. While uploading pictures and videos of their offsprings online, families are showing their joy, but they tend to forget that paedophiles exist behind the screens and unknowingly they render their kids and babies vulnerable to situations especially with Facebook’s recent privacy and security issues. Social media stalking is a common activity of people.
Paedophiles are not an exception to it. If laws should be more severe towards paedophiles, parents on the other hand should refrain from posting snaps of their kids on any social media platforms.
