I have a Facebook account. Some of my friends online are younger kids. This was circulating around, and the kids were having fun filling it out. I found it troublesome:
I didn't come up with this.. and yes some of these things are weird, blame the creator of it. Who is not me.
1.YOUR REAL NAME:
2.WITNESS PROTECTION NAME:(parents' middle names)
3.NASCAR NAME:(grandfathers' first names)
4.STAR WARS NAME:(the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name)
5.DETECTIVE NAME:(favorite color, favorite animal)
6.SOAP OPERA NAME:(middle name, town where you were born)
7.SUPERHERO NAME: (2nd fav color, fav drink, add "THE" to the beginning
8.FLY NAME:(first 2 letters of 1st name, last 2 letters of your last name)
9.ROCK STAR NAME:(current pets name, current street name)
10. PORN NAME: (1st pet, street you grew up on)
11.YOUR GANGSTA NAME:(first 3 letters of real name plus izzle)
12.YOUR IRAQI.. NAME:(2nd letter of your first name, 3rd letter of your last name, first two letters of your middle name, last two letters of your first name then last three letters of your last name)
13.YOUR GOTH NAME:(black, and the name of one of your pets)
14. STRIPPER NAME: (name of your favorite pet, favorite candy)
a lot of these things they are asking for, such as the street you grew up on, grandparents names, name of favourite pet, etc., are used as identifying questions by various online accounts to access your password, in case you forget it. Here, kids are posting that info for public consumption.
Eternal vigilence! Keep an eye on the things your kids are doing online. I posted a warning to my friends, but I wonder how many people (not just kids) have fallen for this type of trap...
