Momo - the character was developed by a Japanese "artist" - Keisuke Aisawa.

He's not exactly a favourite now amongst Parents Globally, wonder if the Sicko's doing this "challenge" thing, will go for Damien Hirst next ?

Perhaps Schools should start adding Social Media to early year classes. It shouldn't be that difficult or troublesome, probably akin to Road Safety exercises.

I guess we've all seen Parents pushing Kids around in push-chairs... and noticed that those Kids are so quiet because they're so engaged with the iPad/etc that they're playing with. The technology has become the modern day baby's rattle, but with it, comes a darker side as time goes on. So education needs to start soon, just the same way as teaching Kids that roads are dangerous places.

It's not hard to research these things yourself before sharing them on Facebook.

Everybody is so quick to get their 'likes' that they don't bother to check if something is actually true before sending it out with their name attached to it.

I don't know how many times I saw the stupid Momo story on my newsfeed without actually having heard of anyone ever seeing one of the supposed hacked videos.
