Kids are obsessed with YouTube, and many love to post videos of themselves. There are videos of young girls dancing, doing cartwheels, putting on makeup, opening presents. Anyone can see them -- including people you wouldn’t want anywhere near young girls. This week, YouTube suspended comments on videos featuring young minors because predators were leaving sexually suggestive comments. The move came after one YouTube user posted a viral video about the issue earlier this month, causing major companies to pull their advertisements until YouTube fixed the problem.
