Hey girls-
most of you are saying things about GL not being safe, these are some reasons it is:
1) mods do a great job to make sure all you post is completely safe that you don't post personal stuff
2) when you blow up profile pictures they are blurry, the odds of someone being able to recognize you are very low.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
also, a lot of you are saying you are careful- you may be but if a smart predator were to find you, they could trace your internet.
some tips about safety:
~if you have a web cam, cover it up with something, if someone hacks into it then they could see you doing whatever
~just because someone has pictures of themselves doesn't mean they are real (they could just find pictures to match their online description)
~maybe change a few letters in your last name and tell your true friends your facebook name.
~just because you facebook isn't supposed to be publicly viewable doesn't mean it is, people can hack past it!
NOTE: this isn't to scare you girls, you all need to be careful even on GL mods may not be able to always catch everything!
Smile happy internet surfing!

My dad used to work with an online creeper.
The guy he worked with asked to have sex with a girl my age, but it was actually a cop that was hired to chace after those guys.
He went to jail and he isn't able to have a job ever again.
It's so scary....

Hey babe, the key is self love and positive self talk.  It's important to have support when you're struggling with accepting yourself completely as you are.  You do not need to change. You are AWESOME exactly as you are.  Try making a list of all your accomplishments, talents, and things you are proud of.  Make a list of things you like about yourself.  It sounds weird, but it can help!  Another way to boost your confidence- try fun exercise....like Salsa dancing or Bike riding with a friend.  Do things that you feel good doing...it's not healthy to slave away on a treadmill or in the gym...that's no fun!  If you feel really low and need support, http://www.girlslife.com/post/2008/08/04/HELP!2.aspx



This is a help hot line for all girls who need support in their lives.  Hang in there babe, you are strong for admitting what's going on and seeking help before things get too low.

ok so there is this site i go on a lot and its sort of like face book. i met this really nice guy on it and hes like a year older than me and i no he is not some creepy old guy because i have seen pictures of him and stuff. we have been like really good friends for a few months now and he lives like a few minutes away from me and its like on the beach. he wants to meet me someday and since he lives close to the beach i thought that if i ever did that it could be in like the summer and my family would go with me and his family too. is that a good idea or should i just never meet him in person?




Hey girl, meeting someone you met online could potentially be a very dangerous situation. Sure he has photos as a guy your age, but he could honestly be anyone. I would not go and meet him, there are WAY too many risks. You could try talking to your parents about it, but never meet this person without an adult. Even bringing you best girl friends with you could put you, and your friends, in danger. I know it may seem paranoid to think this guy is harmful, but this sort of stuff happens all the time. Good luck!

i dont get why you would WANT to talk to a complete stranger in the first place though.......just sayin!

MOD? I think Twitter was designed for stalkers or something.... it encourages you to post exactly what you're doing and when, (most people I know do) and you can "follow" people-- so you know exactly what people are doing, when they're doing it! Why would they make such a silly, dangerous site?

 

Hey girly, sure, posting exactly what you're doing can be creepy. However, that's not all that Twitter is. Twitter is great to get news from. CNN posts breaking news on there, as do other major networks. Rather than waiting to see something on the tv, it's like a live news feed.

Hey Mod!
Are you guys saying it's not a good idea to have a facebook? I mean you can just make your pictures privet.







Its dangerous because its hard to control what people see. Just be careful! xoxo kerra
