A meek and shy teenager may become more open and brave, making it easier to share personal thoughts or problems. It also provides opportunities to meet people who share their particular interests from all over the world.

10.2. negative

10.2.1. Police statistics showed that the rapes committed by paedophiles who met their victims online or via phone chatlines went up from 5 in 2004 to 13 in 2005. According to the police, between 2001 and 2006 there were 124 reported cases of female victims of sexual crimes as a result of knowing the offenders through the Internet. Of these reported cases, about 80 victims were below 16 years of age.

10.2.2. However, cyberpals can be dangerous when they are not truthful of their real identities. There is no face-to-face communication, cyberpals can easily hide or misrepresent themselves and pretend to be what they are not. Therefore, revealing some personal information to cyberpal(s) could result in a potentially threatening situation.

10.2.3. There have been reported cases of paedophiles using online and bulletin board services to entrap children and teenagers. The online paedophiles start off being friendly and showing concern for their well-being. After gaining their trust, the paedophiles will ask some intimate questions, such as their vital statistics, and make promises of gifts, movies and meals. Then slowly the paedophiles will suggest online sex or to meet in person. An example of a reported case is that of a 37-year-old man who tried to rape a 13-year-old girl whom he befriended in cyberspace (The Straits Times, 17 March 2007).
