Title in Latvian: Sociāls eksperiments "Cik daudz par bērnu var uzzināt internetā?"

The social experiment was conducted by choosing three teenagers aged 12 and 13, with their parent's permission. This was done by first analyzing their social media accounts and then agreeing with a parent to take their child to the meeting. The teenager was left alone in a lobby to wait for his/her parents and after a couple of minutes a stranger wearing T-shirt with the teenager's private pictures and personal information came up and started a conversation. The teenagers' reactions demonstrate that they are unaware that all the private information they share online can be seen even by total strangers.
