Teen Girls Must Be Cautious Before Meeting Online "Strangers”

A recent research has claimed that there are fair chances of teenage girls falling victim to meeting their online friends in reality, which might prove to be risky for them. It has been claimed by researchers that as much as 30% interviewed girls have accepted that they have actually met their online chatting partners in real life too, and that too not knowing much about real identity of theirs beforehand.

"On the other hand, 90 percent of our adolescents have daily access to the Internet, and there is a risk surrounding offline meetings with strangers, and that risk exists for everyone", said study author Dr. Jennie Noll, a Professor of pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati, while adding that there is lingering danger of them facing any serious problem to do the fishy interaction.

For the research, over 250 adolescent girls aged 14 to 17 years were talked to, and it was also noted beforehand that 130 of all had even faced a documented form of abuse. It was done to check if those who have been through such harsh experiences were more likely to suffer from such attempts or not. There is dire need for one and all to make sure that such unsafe interactions' are avoided or perhaps verified beforehand.
