Young children are often prey to such cyber crime. It is advisable for children to keep their parents in loop if at any point they feel insecure online or offline. Any kind of harassment should be informed to parents or anyone you feel comfortable to share with.
We need to learn not to trust everyone, be skeptical. Education at every level is required to be aware about these crimes.
Most of the times, specially girls and women hide such things for the sake of their social status, parents, friends or husband. Never ever hide these serious issues. Do share it with the concerned person, so that they can take appropriate action and can save you from any upcoming danger. Social media is good to some extent, but we cannot make our life depend totally on it. We do need real friends to be with.
Addiction to social media takes us away from the real world. Try your best to avoid sharing your and your family pictures. Restrict letting unknowns know your whereabouts in daytoday life. Once a bad person knows pattern of your day, he/she will try to make use of it for stalking or may be even harassing you. So be cautious and be safe.
