PLN 11

"Strasburg man arrested for internet luring,” by the Denver Post talks about a 43 year old man that tried to set up a date online with a 14 year old girl. This shows a major bad about technology. People have figured out how to use it to their advantage. There are lots of messed up guys out there that can use technology in order to find younger girls. Yes there are the dating sites that are “safe and secure.” On the other hand there are always breaks in the system or people that know how to hack the system and can find everything out about a person. Personal information is not as safe as it was before technology came along. It is not necessarily technology itself though; it is the people that use technology in ways other than its original usage. Technology is a great resource but there are people that use it for reasons that should never be needed let alone gone through with.
