@Weeb, If you're going to be an absentee parent that's on you and I feel sorry for your kids.
However, if you pay any attention at all to what your child is doing, then this would be a non issue.
It's sad that these companies should have to try to inform better, but it's also sad the media likes to make this into the fault of the console maker, instead of trying to make the perpetrator the actual problem, and using the oppurtunity to actually inform parents that certain features exist.
Some are more responsible, but when's the last time you saw more than a paragraph that these features existed at the end of an article or report on such matters.
I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, recently I have been receiving likes for almost every screenshot I take on Xbox by random people (usually girls) that have hundreds/thousands of followers. If you're Average parent, who buys a Switch for their kid and just hands it to them without looking at those features and then you find your kid playing with Harold the 50 year old from the next state over.
I wrote so cringy stuff because I knew that this is very sketchy.
They claim they will give you a private peep show for free but you have to go to a certain web site and enter your credit card info.
Anyone who does this is clearly going to have some sort of credit card fraud happen so I would advise to stay far away from this.
How can I trust that their intentions are true when you have these scammers out there ruining it for all of the honest lonely college girl who apparently can't find love. You also need to consider most of your average parents or grandparents buying these devices don't even know they connect to the internet.
How are these honest poor college girls supposed to ever find a way to not be lonely.:( Such a sad day. But when kids are online and this happens and no adult in sight, then what? It's safer for Nintendo to work this way, look at any time a similar case that happens on PSN or XBL.
