Johannesburg - It's back to school and as parents celebrate their children starting Grade 1 on Wednesday, the Film and Publication Board has warned them to be alert of child predators.
Social media has been flooded with heartwarming pictures of little ones wearing their school uniform with parents and family members doting on them.
In some of the posts, particularly on Twitter, the pictures bear the school uniform emblem making the school identifiable while some posts contain the children's names and Grades as well as a clear description of where the pics were taken.
The FPB said the detailed information was the perfect platform for online predators to target young children.
"First day at school is always exciting and parents always feel the need to upload pics of their kids in uniform. Your child’s uniform has their school name on it and can lead online predators to your child. Be careful. #backtoschool," the organisation tweeted.
