Part 2 interview on the subject Facebook and Teens, handling relationships and what parents need to do. Interview happened last September 29, 2011.
In this video, Winnie Cordero talked about a documentary she got to watch about cybercrimes in the U.S. and what is being done to run after “predators”. Then she asked what is being done here to protect the youth online.
I told her that we don’t have such tightly coordinated initiatives yet. We are more reactive and done proactive when it comes to law enforcement. In reality as well, these cases are rare and therefore when it happens, the publicity they get is extraordinary.
However, the concerned people in communities (whether school or special organizations) can do educational awareness on this one. Give heads-up and dialogue whenever negative uses and implications of social network misuse happens. This way, if something similar arises, these teens will already have a comfort level on who should they talk to and seek for advise.
