This could happen to you

1
Shannon could hear the footsteps behind her as she walked toward home. The thought of being followed made her heart beat faster. She was afraid to look back and she was glad she was almost home.
To be safe she walked faster, didn't look back and reached home immediately.
5
Once inside, she leaned against the door for a moment, relieved to be in the safety of her home. After tossing her book on the sofa she decided to grab a snack and get online. There she could talk to strangers without being afraid. After all, no one knew who she really was and couldn't hurt her. She logged on under her screen name ByAngel213. She checked her Buddy List and saw GoTo123 was on. She sent him an instant message:
10
ByAngel213: Hi, I'm glad you are on! I thought someone was following me home today.
GoTo123: LOL You watch too much TV. Don't you live in a safe neighborhood?
ByAngel213: Of course I do. LOL I guess it was my imagination.
GoTo123: Unless you have given your name out online. You haven't done that have you?
ByAngel213: Of course not. I'm not stupid you know.
15
GoTo123: Did you have a softball game after school today?
ByAngel213: Yes and we won!!
GoTo123: That's great! Who did you play?
ByAngel213: We played the Hornets. LOL Their uniforms are so gross! They look like bees. LOL
GoTo123: What is your team called?
20
ByAngel213: We are the Canton Cats. We have tiger paws on our uniforms. They are really cool.
GoTo123: Did you pitch?
ByAngel213: No. I play second base. I got to go. My homework has to be done before my parents get
                      home. I don't want them mad at me. Bye!
GoTo123: Catch you later. Bye
25
Without much hesitation, GoTo123 went to the member menu and began to search for her profile. When it came up, he highlighted it and printed it out. He took out a pen and began to write down what he knew about Angel so far.
He knew her name, birthday, age and her hobbies.
He knew she stayed by herself until 6:30 p.m. every afternoon until her parents came home from work.
30
He knew she played softball on Thursday afternoons on the school team and the team was named Canton Cats. Her favorite number 7 was printed on her jersey. He knew she was in the eight grade at the Canton Junior High School. She had told him all this in the conversations they had had online.
GoTo123 decided it was time to teach Angel a lesson. One she would never forget.
Shannon didn't tell her parents about the incident$^1$ on the way home from the ballpark that day. She
35
didn't want them to make a scene. Parents were always overreacting and hers were the worst. By Thursday, Shannon had forgotten about the footsteps following her.
Her game was in full swing when suddenly she felt something staring at her. It was then that the memory came back. She saw a man watching her closely. He smiled when she looked at him. He didn't look scary and she quickly forgot the sudden fear she had felt.
40
After the game, he sat on a bench while she talked to the coach. She noticed his smile once again as she walked past him. He nodded and she smiled back. He noticed her name on the back of her shirt. Now he had to wait until it was time to make his move.
Shannon was in her room later this evening when she heard voices in the living room.
‘Shannon, come here,’ her father called. He sounded upset and she couldn't imagine why.
45
She went into the room to see the man from the ballpark sitting on the sofa.
‘Sit down,’ her father began. ‘This man has just told us a most interesting story about you.’

1.
Summarize what the short story is about.
The short story ‘This could happen to you’ written by an unknown author is about a girl, called Shannon,
who is taught a lesson by a stranger she met on the Internet.
The short story tells us what could happen to young people if they share too much information with
strangers and what could happen if these strangers would use the given information to harm them.
In Shannons story there's a happy ending because the stranger only wants to teach her a lesson and
uses the information to scare her a little bit but he doesn't want to harm her.

2.
Explain how GoTo123 manages to gain Shannon's trust and to find out her identity.
He is listening to her sorrows and problems or other things which use to happen in Shannons life. He
talks to her like people in Shannons age would do. He behaves like they were good friends and she can
tell him everything. This is how he gains her trust. He finds out about her identity when she tells him about
her hobbies and her life and answers his questions. Other information, like her birthday, he can get on her
member side in the chatroom where she has published these information.

You have a choice here. Choose one of the following tasks.
a) ‘Under 18-year-olds should be banned from social networks.’
Comment on the statement from your point of view and include the following aspects:
  • reasons in favour of and against this statement
  • examples to support your arguments
  • what you do to keep safe on the internet
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. We all know these social networks and the most of us also use at least
one of them. Nearly everybody has an account with whom he or she can share their locations, pictures
and other personal information with their online buddies. But do the younger users know the risks of
sharing every information with the whole world? Some people say ‘Under 18-year-olds should be banned
from social networks.’
First of all, I have to agree with this statement in one point: Teenagers often don't know which information
can be shared online and which information they should keep for themselves. Not everyone has to know
everything about you. Because every single information can be used to harm you. A good example is the
short story This could happen to you in which a young girl gives personal information online to a stranger
and he decides to teach her a lesson, what could happen if someone realy wants to harm you. Luckily
this story has something like a happy ending.
On the one hand it would be a good thing to ban under 18-year olds from social networks because in this
young age Cybermobbing is an important issue. If the under 18-year-olds would be banned from social
networks there would be less Cybermobbing and they would have to settle their disputes in reality. This
leads to an improvement of their skills to handle a conflict. On the other hand it's important for young
people to keep contact to eachother. Social networks like Facebook help keeping in touch with friends
although they live in other cities or countries. Because writing with someone in a chat is way more easier
than writing a letter.
Furthermore the age doesn't matter in social networks. In my opinion people over the age of 18 also
publish information which can be used to harm them. That means for adults it's also a risk to be in social
networks. Sometimes they don't know either which information should be kept private.
To keep safe on social networks I avoid to publish personal information like my birthday or my adress. If
this doesn't work and I have to give a birth date I name a fake one because my friends know my real
birthday. In addition I avoid to upload pictures or to post my position. That's because I don't want any
stranger to know where I am or what I am doing right now. Finally you should only talk or chat online with
people you know in person.
To sum it up I think that young people under the age of 14 should only use social networks and other
websites on the Internet while being supervised by their parents. But the older these teenagers get the
more they have to take on responsibility of what they post on social networks. That's why I don't agree
with the statement. Under 18-year-olds shoudn't be banned from social networks.

Shannon was shocked and scared. What was this guy doing here in the living room? And what has he
told her parents about her? ‘Why are you following me? And what do you want? And who are you?’ Her
voice was shaking. He was smiling at her the same way he did at the softball game. ‘My name, little lady,
is Mr. Smith and I am a detective. Your parents hired me to observe what you were doing on the internet.
I've found you in this chatroom and checked how much information about yourself you would give a
stranger like me. After I told your parents what I've found out we decided to teach you a little lesson. I
was the person who followed you home, some days ago and I am GoTo123, Angel. I used all the
information you gave me…’‘I never gave you anything,’ Shannon shouted at him. ‘Didn't you answered
me some questions? And haven't you published other information on your member side, little lady? Yes.
Because of these information I could follow you to the softball game. But, I promise you, little lady, I never
wanted to harm you. All we wanted was to scare you a bit so you would never give any stranger these
personal information.’ Shannon couldn't say a word. What was this whole thing about? Teaching her a
lesson? Parents who hire a detective to observe her daughter? ‘Shannon, we love you very much. But
when Mr. Smith told us what you do in this chatroom and what you are talking about with some random
strangers we were shocked. Why are you doing this? We're so sorry we had to hire Mr. Smith but we
were very concerned about your safety and this isn't a overreaction, what you might think. We are your
parents,Shannon, and we would do anything for you to be safe. You're all what we have.’ The voice of her
father was shaking and her mother broke into tears. ‘I thought it was someone my age in the chatroom
and that there was no danger at all. How could I know someone could use my answers to harm me or
something like that? Mom, Dad, please don't be mad at me. I promise I will delete all the published
things.’ Shannon was scared what could have happend if it would not be Mr. Smith whom she gave all
the answers. ‘Shannon, just promise us that you'll never talk to strangers in a chatroom.’ Her mother took
Shannon in her arms and gave her a kiss on the forehead. Shannon was released her parents weren't
angry with her and hugged her mother back.
