Are the Momo Challenge warnings going viral on FB correct?
YouTube has weighed in “We want to clear something up regarding the Momo Challenge: We’ve seen no recent evidence of videos promoting the Momo Challenge on YouTube. Videos encouraging harmful and dangerous challenges are against our policies.”
Be a good example for our kids, show them how to research before they believe stuff they see on the internet.
“The main problem was not the phenomenon itself but that professionals and parents were sharing Facebook posts about Momo without checking on its validity. It has become a viral topic, founded more on scaremongering headlines than well-researched facts” said Carmel Glassbrook, manager of Professionals Online Safety Helpline
