Cyber Safety: Does it even exist?

I was just reading my timeline at Twitter, when I noticed this through one of my friend’s tweets.
At first I was baffled, but then I noticed the date being 2013, but also thought of something far more important…
If you survey children about cyber safety and would ask them certain facts, would you really think they would be honest to adults?

When it comes to the safety of children at the internet, parents should realise that no one is safe.
Myself as 15 year old have seen everything you could think about, whether it is bloodshed, porn, extreme discrimination or any other thing parents would like to keep their children safe of…
And in fact, that does not only come from the internet, as we could just put on a news broadcast and most news agencies will not censor any of it.
In the end we live just in a disturbing world where safety is of no importance for some crazy unknown reason…

If I look at myself, I had to set my own limitations at the internet…
Pornography and such is sadly something you could not avoid either way, as even while I have blocked all pornographic content, I love good software, at social media it is not able to be blocked, as people just upload photos and videos directly to these hosts, but more importantly, both major companies Twitter and Facebook, also Facebook’s daughter Instagram, state that a lot of pornography that is reported does not even break their terms…
I am the one for who these terms were made up in the first place, yet when I report it, it is “not pornographic enough”, seriously?!?

In terms of Facebook, it is all crazy when it comes to safety.
At my Facebook account I never lied about my age, this is why a lot of features are restricted, but also why without logging in at Facebook, my account will show it does not exist.
However when it comes to any more safety than that, I probably am better off to disable my Facebook account… if that was actually possible…
Yes, let’s say I was hacked, got back my account and would like to remove it because of what the hacker had done to it, it is currently impossible, instead I would need to fix it myself…
Just think about a Facebook account of a child that got hacked and got all sorts of bad messages send from it, you would need to remove every single message by hand…
Yet the fact is, you could easily send 100 messages every hour without getting any sort of error of Facebook, doing some fast math, that would already be 2400 messages each day that you would be hacked that you would need to remove by hand…
Most people who are hacked, have no access to their account for 1 week or more… 7 times 2400, which is 16800…
Close to 17 thousand messages you would remove by hand if you are hacked by a hacker who knows what he/she/it is doing, good luck with that…

In effectiveness, Twitter is actually the more friendly-safe social network when it comes to being hacked…
With a simple application, you would remove all these messages within about 1 minute, which luckily Twitter’s terms does allow.
Yet Twitter fails just for what they are, which is a public social network, unlike Facebook which is a partial-private social network.
The difference? Twitter allows you to see everything of others, which is both the downside, and the good side of Twitter.
Unlike Facebook, and Facebook’s daughter company Instagram, Twitter is honest about most things when it comes to safety…
Most things I say for a reason, as Twitter tries to make us believe they have a support team, but those who, like me, already have needed support, know that Twitter’s support is 99% automation and 1% ignorance.
No, no, I did not mean anything related to ignoring, I really mean ignorance, as they seem to be unaware of basically everything…
They miss a dedicated support team like every other social network, have no public support, apart of their automated support, safety, policy, and such accounts….
Number 1 importance that any police officer could state to you about safety should be availability…
You can’t suppose that someone will wave a magic wand and all problems are away, you will need to dedicate time and effort to it…

Yet, I will not even say anything really about Instagram and the Russian VK…
Both show nothing more than being the 2 platforms that should be stated as the most unsafe social networks.
Instagram for their main purpose, which is sharing photos, which anyone who cares even a small bit about safety will know is one of the easiest ways to destroy your safety, apart of sharing phone numbers, your home location, real name, or personal identification… Which every social media platform actually ask for, which at most countries at the world is not actually needed, as you are only needed to share this information to governmental parts, Police and, depending on country, insurance and medical companies/organisations…
However, because of people not knowing this, social media platforms just request all of this, while you just destroyed all your cyber safety, while the social media platform only breaks the law when they won’t help you when you won’t share this, which is at a great part of the world a criminal offence…
Yes, social media platforms are breaking law, and use the excuse of “needing to keep you safe”…

In basics when it comes to safety at the internet, it is non-existent, caused by our own ignorance, and the parties who should keep us safe, breaking laws for their own benefits, and by doing these unlawful acts, making your safety disappear like snow when the sun shines…
The main problem is currently not only that parents are not keeping their children safe enough at the internet, it much rather is that there is no safety possible at the internet…
