Wikipedia postPosted: December 10, 2011
For my Wikipedia post, I was unsure of what “term” to contribute to. I searched “Chathour” as well as “Chat Hour” but nothing came up. I could have requested to create a page, but I was nervous that the request would not process by the time this post was due. I then searched “tween” on Wikipedia, and there wasn’t really a good space to add any information about tweens’ usage of the internet. I finally decided to search “chat room” which had plenty of data for me to build off of.
Being that much of my experience on Chathour derived from it’s horny tween users, I decided to contribute to the “sexually related uses” tab of the Chat Room wikipedia page.
I added: Although, minors may not take sexually suggestive or explicit photos in order to engage in sexual exploitation. Tween or teenage chat rooms involve users who can verbally engage in sexually explicit conversations with others, as well as use suggestive language to lure a minor into a “private chat” or “video conference” to engage in a form of cybersex.
Being that I experienced this first hand, I didn’t cite my information, as this is just my personal opinion.
This screenshot shows the Wikipedia article, with my contribution highlighted.
I plan to submit one more post, as I do have a few more hours to complete on Chathour. I will sum up my experience, and I may try to reveal myself as a researcher and see if anyone will open up a bit more in the chat room.
