A social experiment recently conducted by online prankster Coby Persin in association with Damn.com and Pranksters.com explains the pitfalls of minors using social networking sites.

The experiment was conducted with the help of the parents of three girls residing in the US.

In the video, 21-year-old Persin chats with young girls, aged 12, 13 and 14, using a fake Facebook account under the pseudonym Jason Biazzo, who looks like a 15-year-old boy.    

While one girl tries to meet her new Facebook friend in a park soon after her parents leave home, the second one invites the stranger to her home thinking her father has fallen asleep, while the third girl is daring enough to get inside her unknown Facebook friend's car.

The video, uploaded on YouTube on 10 August, is an eye-opener and a must-watch. The video has gone viral on social media and has received more than 9.7 million views within two days.
