As a adult myself, can take care of myself but children is different. Your network is all over the news, but the story isn't PSN is the place to play games this summer; Instead it's "An innocent game of Fifa has gone awry, Billy was working on his corner kick when he received messages from "Sally"" The Xbox One and PS4 have parental controls, hell I'm pretty positive the 360 had them too.
However, if you pay any attention at all to what your child is doing, then this would be a non issue.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.Yeah I'm not going to follow you for liking my picture lol Sadly, this just makes me doubt all those other random college girls which randomly message me to chat. It doesn't matter that parental controls existed, all the news see is "Kid talking to 50 year old dude playing Splatoon 2".Basically the service allows you to chat with people who are nearby and people you have bumped into, which makes it easier to strike up a casual thing with someone close by.Still thinking about the guy you locked eyes with across the cafe at brunch? Blendr A casual hook-up should be nothing if not convenient, which is why this free, "socially flirtatious" app that lets you chat with people nearby is so damn popular—it has 200 million downloads and counting!
IMO, there should be a big ol' piece of paper in the box informing parents of what parental features exist, and a way for them to look up the reasons for such things.
