Coby Persin, a popular YouTube star and prankster, gives everyone a reality check on the dangers of social media through an interesting social experiment. Posted over two weeks ago, the video has received 35,879,441 views as of this writing. What you’ll see is probably one of the scariest nightmares of every parent.


Don’t just stop watching. Share the video with your family and friends. Let’s help children learn to be more cautious online.
