Who are you really talking to online? Social Media Monsters releases tomorrow!

Who is really on the other end of that Facebook friend request, or behind that dating profile, or posting that item for sale on Craigslist? How can you be safe if you plan to meet up with a stranger you met online? What precautions should you take? Tomorrow, RJ Parker and I are releasing our new book, Social Media Monsters: Internet Killers. You can order it now here. In this book, we have detailed more than thirty chilling true stories of killers that have used the internet to locate, stalk, lure, or exploit their victims. Facebook, Craigslist, MySpace, chat rooms, dating sites–it doesn’t matter where you are online; killers are lurking in the shadows. They lurk in suicide chat rooms, search for escorts on Craigslist, and create fake social media profiles to fool and gain the trust of their victims. Someone you have been talking to for months or even years could be a completely different person from what you envisioned.

Not only do we detail these terrifying stories of killers that use social media to find or exploit their victims, but we discuss how law enforcement is now using social media to track and prosecute criminals, and we also provide some terrific tips on internet safety for people of all ages. Learn how to protect yourself from online predators–and spread the knowledge!
