Predators Target Boys too, not just Girls.
This YouTube channel highlights that boys are also at risk when using social media. Coby Persin re-created the same social experiment, but uses a fake girls profile instead, and lures young boys online. This social experiment was done with the boys’ parent’s permission and co-operation.
Coby poses as Amanda, a young teenage girl. He adds John, age 13, Jordan, age 14 and Thomas, age 12 as friends on Facebook. He spends a few days chatting to each of them, and convinces them to meet in person.
