★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED: https://bit.ly/2J5HP7j This is April. She has a story and a warning for you. Her story is a very typical one. She adores using social media, and sometimes exaggerates. Her warning is that when you exaggerate on social media, it can lead to unexpected and unpleasant results. This is what happened to her. When she started studying at a new high school, she found lots of new friends all at once. April is a very sociable person and she’s always had lots of friends in real life, so before she turned 14 or 15 she never even bothered updating her social media profiles more than once a month. What is the sense of writing something and sharing it with the same people you already see every day? It’s quicker to talk about it in person. However, at her new school everyone was very active on their smartphones, whether it was taking pictures and selfies, exchanging messages, updating their profiles every hour, liking things, or commenting all day long. She set up some more social media accounts and started posting something every day. First it was pretty irritating, because she didn’t feel like sharing her personal information online. But April isn’t going to tell you horror stories about how addiction to social media ruined her life. It’s not true. It’s a part of her life, but it’s not the only thing. She understands that this kind of attention seeking is not normal, but on the other hand, it doesn’t actually ruin your health, and maybe it’s just part of a fight against insecurities. But there is the other side of the coin to consider, which is the thing you’ve all heard about and probably find boring and think that adults overreact about. That thing is online security. What dangerous info could you find in the profile of a 15-year-old girl? April didn’t even think about how much personal information might be found on her social media profiles. She thought that if you don’t put your real name or home address or phone number in your posts, you’re totally anonymous. WRONG. Actually there have always been online Sherlocks who can find all your personal data using just the stupid selfies you post every day. The worst thing is that this information can be used against you and your relatives, and cause you a lot of trouble. One day, April’s parents told her some marvellous news. In the summer they were going to Paris. Paris, can you imagine! The Eiffel Tower, Montparnasse, Mona Lisa! Brilliant! The only thing her dad asked her to do was to not tell anyone the exact dates of their trip, because as he explained it was going to involve quite a long absence from home, and it could be risky to inform the whole world that they were leaving. She agreed, but…well, who cares! Try keeping this kind information from your best friends when they ask you about it! And so, soon afterwards, it was no longer a secret anymore. And a trip to Paris was such a good reason to boast and get envious comments! April started taking pictures of every step of her preparations – from the new clothes she bought to packing her suitcase and the tickets she had printed out (obviously with names and a departure date). Everything was posted online and approved by likes. She made a record of herself checking in at the airport, took pictures of the plane and the clouds from above, and tagged herself at Charles de Gaulle airport. For the next two weeks, she reported on her every step. She even posted pictures of the food she ate every day! Her improvised travel blog garnered lots of success, and for her it was a moment of glory. But you pay for every wrong step you take. After doing her last tag at the airport before flying home, she considered her job done, and relaxed. She was calm until they came home...and found their house half-empty. They had been burgled while they were away! While her dad was calling the police, all panicky, April checked her belongings and found out that they had taken everything valuable, even her 20-bucks stash. Horrible! The police came at once and checked the crime scene. She of course took a picture of the cops carrying out their investigation in her house – can you imagine what a story it would be online?! They found certain indications that it was a well-known gang that specialized in burglaries while families were on vacation. The policeman claimed that as far as they knew, the gang members collected information on their victims through their social media accounts. “That can’t be right!” Her dad was incredulous. “None of us posted anything online about the trip! We were very careful!” Oops…April made a face that her dad noticed at once. “April, would you give me your phone?” What else could she have done? Here you go, dad! While he was browsing her social media apps his face turned red, pale, and then red again. And during this time she tried to become invisible – without any success.

★ Subscribe ACTUALLY HAPPENED https://bit.ly/2J5HP7j This is Daisy. This is a story about how her parents tried to take her first love away from her. Last year, she met a wonderful guy named Bill. He was a bit older than her, and they couldn't have been more different from each other – she was a straight “A” student, whereas he struggled with school and also worked part-time at a gas station. Her family was doing relatively well and his was much poorer. But it didn’t matter, because Bill was caring and kind-hearted, and he always made her laugh if she felt sad. She felt happy and safe with this big goofy guy with a loveable smile. His parents loved her from the first moment they saw her, and Bill’s mom always tried to feed her because she was “too thin”. But with her parents it was a completely different story… During a dinner with Bill, her parents asked him way too many questions, like “What are your future plans?”, “Why do you work at a gas station?”, “Do you plan to go to college?”. Bill was completely flustered because he didn’t expect those kinds of questions, and neither did Daisy. It was hard for him to answer because her parents put him on the spot, and after each response they stared at Bill with disapproval. Bill left in a hurry, and afterwards her parents started to lecture her on how Bill wasn't a very smart or reliable guy, and how bad it was that he came from a poor background. “You should think more about the future, Daisy. You can find someone more suitable to your level of education”, they told her. They implied that Bill would drag her down to “his level”. She tried to argue with them and tell them more about how wonderful Bill was, but they wouldn’t listen. Moreover, they completely forbade her from seeing him. And well, if they don’t listen to her, she wouldn’t listen to them, so of course she kept seeing Bill. Needless to say, Bill was very upset about all of this, and thought that he didn’t deserve Daisy and that he was “too stupid” for her. She assured him it wasn’t true and that she wanted to be with him no matter what her parents said. They met in secret for a few weeks, and she had to come up with a new excuse every time. Eventually, her parents caught on to what she was doing, and they were so mad about it. Daisy knew that logical and calm arguments wouldn’t work, so she simply kept on arguing with them until the point came where they took her phone and computer away, and she had to return home immediately after school. Daisy couldn’t let her parents take her freedom and her beloved Bill from her, so they met during school, often skipping lessons. It didn’t take long for her parents to find out about it. When they did, they told Bill that if he didn’t leave her alone, they would inform the police. Bill didn’t know what to do, and neither did Daisy. Her parents had never been so strict with her before. She decided that if she couldn’t be with Bill, at least she could take revenge on her parents. One night Daisy snuck out the house and...slashed the tires of their car so they couldn’t drive her to school. When she had finished, she was surprised to realize that she was capable of doing something like that. The next day, she was delighted with how angry her parents were, but then something unexpected happened...well, actually, very much expected if she had thought more about it beforehand. Her angry parents went to the police and told them that Bill had done it. Later, Bill and his parents came to Daisy’s house to apologize. It turned out that when they asked Bill about it, he said “yes, I did”. You should have seen his face while he was saying it – it was like he was going to start crying at any second. He was extremely upset, but he didn’t want her to get into trouble. Her parents said that Bill should keep away from Daisy’s family and that his family should pay them money for “ruining” the car. By now she couldn’t hold it in anymore, and she told her parents that it was her who had done it. Of course they didn’t believe her, saying that she just wanted to save “this good-for-nothing boy”, and Bill kept agreeing with them and saying that yes, it was he who had done it. She then showed her parents the knife she had used for it, and described how and when she did it in detail. Her parents finally believed her, but still said that Bill’s influence made her do it. And suddenly, Bill raised his head and said: “Listen, I know that I’m not the smartest or the best guy Daisy could find, but I love her and I want to be with her forever, and I would never try to make her life worse in any way. I know I’m not perfect but I promise I will try really hard to be the best boyfriend ever”.this is Daisy, and Her parents were surprised by his words and finally softened up, saying that maybe they were wrong about him after all. They didn’t start to actually LIKE him, but they were willing to give him a chance.
