No video only cyber chat chat rooms
These private chats are sometimes called instant messages, or buddy chats.Once someone gets you into a private chat, he or she can say anything to you and no one else can see.This question of anonymity has raised major security issues with chat rooms.There is no way to really believe or trust a person you have never met except through conversation online.A friendly stranger in a chat room is still a stranger and not an ideal person for you to trust with your phone number or other personal information.
As a parent it is impossible to monitor what your children do on the PC 100% of the time.More than any other place online, chat rooms are grounds for pedophiles and other predators trying to make contact with young people.In the anonymous atmosphere of the Internet, where kids feel free to be honest, conversations can quickly become intimate.Take a while to observe how people interact in the chat room, before you take part in the conversation. Because others can not hear your voice or see your face, it is possible that your comments can be misconstrued.
Use "emoticons" and other chat expressions wherever possible. Every chat and instant messenger has an "Ignore" feature.With the dangers of online predators growing you should take precautions now to find out if there is a problem before it's too late.
