Chat rooms provide people a space to discuss a wide variety of topics ranging from politics and current events to art. Unfortunately, however, chat rooms do pose potential threats; Jehovah’s Witness youth should use caution when using such communication methods and should seek an adult to oversee any sessions where inappropriate material could be shared with them.
Chat rooms present a major risk in that they attract predatory adults looking for vulnerable young people with whom to engage in cybersex, send explicit images, or meet offline for sexual acts – this activity often constitutes criminal offense in many jurisdictions.
Chat rooms are typically moderated to prevent disruptive users from ruining the experience for other users. Most chat rooms have rules of etiquette (a form of netiquette) which all users must abide by, and moderators may ban or kick people out who cause disruptions in the room.
If a user is suspected of meeting minors online to engage in sexual activity, they could face charges under California Penal Code 288.4 for engaging in sexual activity with children and must register as a sex offender. While such instances occur regularly, they can be avoided by always meeting them in public locations with both parties being aware that they are dealing with minors.
