The paper explains that prior to the Internet revolution, teenagers were approached in person by adult predators to encourage them to participate in any number of illegal activities, to include prostitution and drug use. As the use of the Internet has evolved, however, predators of teenagers no longer must make their contacts solely in person, but have the ability to establish relationships with teens online and win their trust over a period of time. The paper emphasizes that because of the easy availability of the Internet in modern society, the social class, age or race of an individual teen that is approached over the World Wide Web is inconsequential to predators.
