Okay so my friend let's call her jenny went onto a website she wasn't supposed to and she chatted with people on it, she lied about her last name, her city and her age. But her brother told the truth (her brother also had an account)so she was afraid that they might find her. And me & our teacher are trying to comfort her, but she's still paranoid about the situation. She needs to get rid of two accounts on two different websites, and she needs someone else to do it for her. And i'm most certainly NOT. :/ So now she needs help to do all of this.

 

Is there any way she can delete it, or is she not allowed to go on to delete it? It's unsafe to chat for her to chat with people she doesn't know online. You shouldn't have to get involved, but maybe you can have her tell her parents and say she won't go back on it and she could ask them to delete her accounts. She could also talk to the teacher about her problem and see if she could help delete it. Or, maybe she, the parents and the teacher could all delete it. If it's a bad site, maybe the teacher or parents can help him get rid of his account also.

She wanted me to give you an update of her situation.
She told her teacher instead of her parents, because her teacher is actually super nice about everything and anything! She's at the moment helping her, and i'm trying to. (:

Hey girl,

One of the risks of the internet is that stuff like this can happen with people you don't know. But it's ok!  First off, go onto the Skype website and learn how to block people. Once you know how to protect yourself, you won't have to be afraid to sign onto Skype again. You also know now that you actually can get requests from strangers, so you also know not to accept it if you don't know the person. Instead, block the person before even letting them connect and keep yourself safe Smile

Mod, she said she wants to tell her parents, but she wouldn't know how. So how should she tell them?




Hey girl, tell her just to talk a deep breath and tell her parents what happened. She did the right thing by removing her personal information, but she can let her parents know that she initially did give personal information away and that makes her nervous. I'm sure it won't amount to anything, there is so much stuff out there on the internet it would be unlikely someone had found the information. But talking to her parents will probably make her feel better. Good luck!

Mod, this is what i think:
if she goes back on the website, it'll just make her closer to them. i think she should just stay away from it, too. but she's still holdin' onto the idea of them finding her. she's like, going insane. she has MAJORRRRR paranoia. :/?




hey girlie, just tell her what you think is best but ultimately she'll have to make her own decisions.

by poohbear(: on 7/12/2010 1:47:15 PM

by poohbear(: on 7/12/2010 1:41:13 PM

 
 

Mod,
Thanks for the advice. Because she now remembers that they probably wouldn't track her down, because one of her friend's on there (he's a guy) had a girlfriend, and the girlfriend actually tracked the boyfriend down, got his address, and sent him a letter. So if anything, i'm sure they would track each other down or something... And now she's going back to paranoia thinking that they'll team up, and search for her. :/ Grrrrrr! Nothing is more difficult than having a stubborn friend. Frown




Hey girlie, I'm sure everything will be fine!

Hey girlie, I think it would probably best if she just didn't go back on the website -- making something up would just be complicated. I really don't think that anyone is going to track her down if she took her personal info down, especially if she doesn't go back on the website.

Mod,
Actually you'll have to read all of my comments below to really get what i'm talking about. Sorry!
The question is: She got her username and her password, but she's too afraid to go on it (the website.) And i'm sure as heck not gonna go on there for her... So now what does she do?




Hey girlie, if she took all her info off the site, I think she should just leave it as it is. If she didn't leave any personal info on there, it's fine if she doesn't go on it again -- in fact it's probably best! She can also see if she can get the site to delete her account!

MOD MOD MOD I've been pretty insecure lately about my body. My weight is actually perfect for my age/height and I am very happy with it but lately my stomach just looks huge. Some days it's nice and flat but then other days I look like I'm pregnant! I'm not sure if it has to do with the fact that I eat a lot, or maybe I have to improve my posture or something, I don't know. Lately I've been trying to stop eating random snacks like I always used to, and it's kind of helping but still some days I don't like the way my stomach looks. I don't want to take things too far because I don't want anorexia... but what should I do?

 

Hey chica, junk food can totally make you feel bloaty and unattractive. Eating fruits and veggies and drinking lots of water will make you look flatter than if you eat junk. And you'll feel like you look better too Smile

I used to have a Twitter account that was totally public and ANYONE could see it. I had over 100 followers and there were only maybe 5 that i KNEW for a fact were real. There was this one person though... I don't remember their twitter name. They asked me weird questions and ALWAYS responded to my tweets. Once, I checked their profile, and every one of their tweets was them talking to other girls. They changed their picture multiple times and it was never the same person. And whenever I posted a picture of myself they'd comment telling me how pretty I am. This person scared me for a long time. I ended up deleting my twitter (for other reasons) and now I have a Twitter account where my tweets are protected and only the people I approve of can follow me. I once went to see if that creepy person was still around but their account had been deleted. I'm very lucky that I didn't give out personal info about myself, this person was probably a predator whose identity had been discovered by one of the hundreds of girls he spoke to daily.

She actually doesn't remember her password so she can't really delete anything. She lied about everything though! She said she lied about:
Her name, age, her city, her picture (she used her brother's ex's picture), One of her bestfriends' name and i think thats it. 




Hey girlie the best I can do is give you the link to GL directly so they can help you track down her account and delete it. http://www.girlslife.com/Contact.aspx

I'm so sorry I'm commenting so much, but she says I can't tell anyone she knows or anything like that.
She said that she can't tell her parents because they'd be really mad at her. Like SEVERELY mad. Foot She's asking me to go onto the website, but I'm not going to take my chances... She said she needs to find out how to be sure she's safe on her own or with my help, and no one else's.




All she can do is clear her information from her profile now. I wish I could do more for you but there is nothing I can do. You should really tell a trusted adult.

She's got one more problem. Sometimes her mind will trick her into trying to pray that the people she talked to will find her... Would God really answer or put her in danger like that, or would He ignore them, because He knows that she truly doesn't mean it?... And how can she stop doing this?

 

I think whatever god she believes in would probably want to keep her safe and keep her away from them. There's also probably no possible way for these people to find her anyway since she didn't give them any personal information. Even though she's off of the site she seems to want to still be connected to it in someway. That's something that she's going to have to work out for herself, not something you can help her with.

She cussed and stuff because she knew that would TOTALLY trick them into knowing she was a teen. (She isn't.) I'm telling her she did the right thing. Because in my eyes, i think it wasn't her really saying those things, it was like her common sense, or subconsious telling her to. Thats why she cussed. I think she did the right thing by cussing, and then she stopped cussing, and she's actually a better person now since she stopped going on there.. I can't even imagine her guilt. I'm telling her the psat is nothing, because yesterday was just yesterday. Its not the present... But she's STILL guilty and regretful. Ugh! She's so stubborn! Foot

 

Hey girlie, remind her that her reasons for her were to be someone she's not, not because she's a bad person. She's off the site now and it's over so there's not really much else she can do. Her safety is what's most important.

Okay so Jenny (my friend i talked about it my other comment a few comments down) has stopped going on it. I talked to her about it, and now she's regretful and very guilty. She's afraid that they might find her. Her mind sometimes tries to pray for them to find her, but she tries to make herself think about something else but sometimes she ends up thinking about what she said on there. (She cussed and was just not exactly appropriate on there) and now she's just SUPER regretful and guilty... How can I help her, or how can she help herself in this situation?... She also told me she hasn't been on there in six months. I told her they would've found her by now, but she still regrets and stuff... SO how can i help her, how can she help herself? 




I'm not 100% sure what you're saying, but I'll try my best to answer! I think you're friend did the right thing by staying away from cyberspace.  But I'm kind of confused as to why she was cursing online? Sometimes, although you really want to help your friend out, sometimes they kind of just have to learn for themselves because they don't want to listen.  Make sure your friend knows how much you care about her, and her safety, and after that, there isn't much you can do!

Mod, I have a question. I'm kind of worried about my friend, she's only ten turning eleven. Let's call her Jenny. So Jenny goes on a website where you can do just about anything. Talk to people, give out your number, put up pictures, and all of that stuff. Now that I read this article, I'm scared for her. She uses a fake name on the website, lied about where she lives, and ied about her best friends's names, and her age. So I'm paranoid now, but since she lied a lot, would she be safe? And I'm not sure if she still goes on that website, but I'm just wondering.

 

Hey girlie, those kinds of websites can be dangerous.  She should be fine if she made everything up, but if you're worried that she's still using it talk to an adult who can talk to her about it.

some opf this is true. but not for all websites. like msn and facebook both let you choose your friends. so if you invite someone you don't know it's your own falt.

also on facebook they have safety settings on the sites too so you can make only your your frinheds can see it. plus you can even make some stuff not visble to people in your contacts too.

if your responsilble this sites aren't that bad.

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!

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

Eh, people tend to freak out about the internet. Like Chatroulette and Omegle are two of my favorite websites, you can video chat with random strangers it's so fun! Talking to random people, sure there was some creepers, but it really isn't a big deal at all. You all just hear stories or like 1 creeper and it makes you think everyone online is a creeper, but that's not true.
And facebook especially... there's NOTHING wrong with it. I mean, you can find out a lot about a person fro their page, but just don't add people you don't know, simple as that.
The internet can be scary, but don't think too hard about it. It really is not that big a deal.

I am starting to get very stressed about school. For example, in algebra, I always try my best, do all of my homework, and complete my classwork but I just got a test back from that class and I got an E!!! Yup, I failed horribly on it... and now I'm freaking out because we are getting report cards soon and originally on my interim I had a C, and today I took a benchmark and I struggled on a few questions and before the test my teacher told us that it's worth half our grade. I don't want my grade to drop!!! Any tips on how I can get my grade up? This is the only low grade I have and I'm doing everything I can! help please Frown

Maybe GL should make this place a bit safer and NOT let people have person pics ???????
Or is that just common sense

OMG!!! In Social Studies, 6th grade, you have to do this thing about "Missing", where this kid was kidnapped 'cause he met someone online and you have to figure out how to get him back before it's too late!

MOD MOD MOD! This girl, let's call her "Maggie", followed me on Google Buzz. She's supposdeley my age, and in my grade, at a school in New York. She's friends with a ton of people I know, and I think she might be one of my friend's cousins, but I'm not sure. I don't think so. What should I do? Should I block her, ignore her, or follow her back? And should I tell somebody?

 

Hey girl, ask her how she knows you, and if she doesn't know you and it makes you uncomfortable, then I would just block her.

Ughhh.. We get the lecture every year at school about how what we put on the Internet can keep us from getting a good job. This year we have gotten about 5 talks about it, each lasting an hour long. It really does make you more aware of things, though!

by hockeyismylife on 3/23/2010 11:52:45 PM

 
 

MODMODMOD it says in the article that u have 2 be at least 13 to be on facebook, but there are plenty of younger kids are on. I know a 9 year old on facebook! they just lie about there age.




Hey girl! Yeah ... unfortunately people do that, but Facebook was created for older kids so it's a little more "sophisticated" than MySpace. It's used especially by a lot of college students for networking.

We have to take care of each others backs. Its very dangerous on the interenet then you think. Even though I have a facebook, i am very aware what pics,messeages,and friends I put up and add. Be careful girls!

I so wish I could offer some
great advice. Unfortunately since I’m not an expert on the matter, I don’t want
to point you in the wrong direction. Try having a chat with the good old
‘rents. I’m sure they’ll be more than happy to help you get things squared
away.

*MOD*
ON facebook, there is a guy who added me as a friend. His profile said he went to my school and moved away last month. He is friends with over 50 of my friends, all of which that are boys and girls in my grade. I'm wondering if I know him but just can't recall his name or something. Should I accept his friend request?

 

Hey girl,

Usually, I never accept friend requests with people I don't recognize.  It's always possible (though unlikely) he could have created a fake account and friended all those people to make it look real.  But if you don't remember him, why would you want to be friends with him anyway?  There's no reason you need to keep in touch with someone you don't even know!  I'd ignore it for sure.

um im new and dunno how to ask questions like this... i seen MOD alot.. soo.. if anyone can help reply...how do you know when the 'creeper' is being a kid? do they type like us just cuz after years of practice on how to be a kid? O_O and there are times when you meet somebody and they're actually who they are but how do you know? i have a friend who made a friend online and he's just who he appears to be, it's really nice. xD but over the summer i made a friend and .. we exchange emails and stuff and he seems really nice but i dunno if it's for real or not. of course i dont tell him anything, he only knows my name but is it still bad to make friends online?

 

Hey girlie,

Welcome to gl! If you want a moderator to answer your question, type MOD at the top of your post. moderators (like me) read every single post before it goes up on the website, so we will see the MOD and answer your question! You never know who you are talking to on line! While it is definitely possible for someone to be telling the truth online, be on the safe side and never give out personal info! Remember, even if people tell the truth about who they are, everyone acts differently online the only true relationship is in person!

this is actually really important. i guy from crime stoppers came and told us about facebook and online safety. he said never post a picture of anyone on facebook where you aren't smiling or making a goofy face and looking straight at the camera. people will make fake passports and other documents with YOUR name and picture. a local newspaper did and experiment where they were able to find everything about this girl and then call her because of what she put on facebook or a similar site. the internet can be a scary place.

by kgirlpanda on 3/3/2010 4:23:13 PM

 
 

BTW-I like the pic, we should have panic buttons when we feel in danger, but then again people could just press them whenever I guess so that would be bad...

by lasagna on 3/3/2010 4:13:42 PM

 
 

Very true. That hot guy could just be a stalker waiting to whisk you away... we're learning all about this in my tech class.
