Facebook Live

I have seen two stories about teens getting on the Facebook Live app and live streaming themselves driving at high speeds. Unfortunately, in one case, this caused the death of two young girls when their car was rear ended by a tractor trailer.

Facebook Live is an app within Facebook that allows members to live stream video to capture moments as they occur. So kids are now able to record and share stupid, dangerous, or criminal acts with their friends. Many times they do this to be the center of attention or for vengeance.

Talk to your kids about the dangers of doing anything while driving, but also educate them on the different ways that this app could be used in a way that may hurt them or their friends. They need to know that they are not invincible.
