Dangers of social media

Some people on the Internet aren't always who they say they are people can lie on the internet. If you come across a profile online and that person want to chat but you don't know them you should probably be careful about the information you give them. For example if they ask for your address you probably shouldn't give it to them or if they want to meet up with you you most likely shouldn't go. If you decide to go you should tell someone you're going like you're parents and it should be in a public place where lots of other people are. Also if you don't know that person you do not go in their car no matter what.
