I also read an article this week about a student who used social media to convince her family that she was travelling around South East Asia, when she was in fact in her bedroom for the duration of her five-week "trip". This was a very, very clever university project, which is reminiscent of the videos shared by CEOP to highlight the risks of meeting up with someone you met online, who isn't necessarily the person you think they are.
So I've learnt something this week; always to take things with a massive pinch of salt when they're online, however convincing they may seem. So on that note, is this a massive milkshake or a tiny head?! Answers on a postcard!
