I know alot of people who are afraid to release information online. like their phone number, address, where they're from, etc. but nobody pays attention who what you tell the people around you. for instance: you're getting a haircut and you get one of those people who talk alot. they ask where you're from, where you're family is from, and your name. but you would normally tell this person, even if you don't know them. it's the same scenario online, except 'you don't want to tell these people, they can steal your information' but so can other people you meet. so why do people have a greater fear of online predators?
