“There are a lot of bad situations that can arise because of a naive understanding of how social media works…,” Humphreys told ABC affiliate station WCHS-TV in Charleston, West Virginia.

“So it’s important as a parent to monitor those things, keep tabs on who your children are communicating with,” he concluded.
