Talking to New People Online

We live in a world where it is easy to meet new people and make new friends on Facebook and other social media platforms.

While this can be a great thing, we also need to keep in mind not everyone on the internet is who they say they are.

We need to be careful when making new friends we have never met in real life.

Some people may want to trick us into giving them money.

Other people may want to trick us into doing something illegal.

Or trick us into sending naked photos.

Real friends would NEVER trick you into doing these things.

If anyone online tries to make you do anything you are uncomfortable with then let someone you trust know.

Stop It Now are raising awareness about how the internet can be used by people to abuse and other people.
