Title in Latvian: Sociāls eksperiments "Viltus kastinga sludinājums"

The experiment was made to check if parents handle their children's private information responsibly. A fake casting agency page and advertisement on Facebook were created and parents were asked to send information, photos and videos of their children in order to take part in a commercial. During the three-day experiment, 379 parents viewed the advertisement, 74 parents sent 240 photos and videos of their children and only 4 parents asked additional questions about the casting agency (type of agency, where they could find more information and the purpose of the campaign)
