After watching a widow on GMB today who was scammed out of all her funds I do question how safe social media is,its terrifying.
Some evil people hone in on the vulnerable and lonely and they sound so convincing,and its no good saying it could'nt happen to you,because it can,no one is immune from tangling with evil.
I have been considering leaving social media behind because it can be destructive and problematic if we are not canny enough to recognise the warning signs.
Its not only the people who are questionable,it is so many adverts offering amazing products which are absolute rubbish too,and i have fallen for some of these things.
I do think Facebook should be much more responsible in who they allow to advertise,but of course its all about money and they dont care a damn if people are fleecing us.
The internet does have its uses,but i do feel it can be very unsafe,and even with online banking its not absolutely safe.
Some people are so clever in accessing peoples accounts,and instead of financial services demanding that we use the internet ,they should remember that not everyone trusts or likes it.
Life was so much easier and trustworthy before we depended on all things techno.
When we go on line now we go through a raft of questions ,passwords,numbers etc,and still its not fool proof,and that is scary,and just try to speak to a person and not a machine and we are b&@#*ed
