CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - WBTV's Cyber Expert has warned you to monitor what your children are doing online. She's even suggested waiting as long as possible before letting them have a Facebook profile.
Now add another concern to your list. An online game could be encouraging your kids to have cyber-sex and rewards them with additional points.
CYBER EXPERT THERESA PAYTON EXPLAINS HOW IT WORKS:
- Sims Social encourages you to build romantic relationships to any of your connections within their game.
- The more you play Sims Social by taking care of your neighborhood, the higher rating your profile has. That alone might be okay but there's a disgusting twist.
- In addition to the more mundane activities of life, the more you "advance" your relationship on the game, which can include cybersex, the more e-currency and rewards you receive on your Sims Social account.
