Dangers of Social Media Posters
The world is full of dodgy characters. But, when you’re face to face, it’s easy to identify whether someone’s dangerous.
It’s also easy to mistake someone for Rolf Harris, which is one of the only times my scouse accent comes in handy.
Terrified mother: ‘Oh God, there’s Rolf Harris!’
Me (in thick scouse): ‘I’m fumin’, I’m not Rolf, I’m Ian, la. Don’t be a divvy.’
No longer terrified mother: ‘Phew.’
Anyway, my point is, online it’s not quite that simple. Because on the world wide web, you can be whoever you want to be. Which means a 57 year old bloke can pose as a 17 year old girl. A housewife from Texas can pretend to be your old mate from Scunthorpe high school with the wonky eye. An 18 year old in their bedroom can create bot accounts with dodgy links, access your device, and sell your identity on the dark web.
And that’s why I made these posters last night.
Hopefully makes you think a bit before accepting a friend request.
