One Click from Capture

I watched the BBC’s Panorama programme tonight (One Click from Capture). It was a pretty scary and sobering programme.

The programme demonstrated, once again, just how easy it is for a sexual predator to track down children through the internet. Sites such as bebo, Myspace and Teenspot are popular with people (of all ages) in the UK. Many people who use them are innocent people with no intention of harming children. However, they do provide another medium for sexual predators to groom children.

Every parent and every young person using a social networking site should watch this programme just to show them how easy it is.

If you missed the programme it can be watched again on BBC iPlayer
