ABSTRACT
The paper elaborates on several actual “dangerous fads” among youngsters and children that from early age take an active part in computermediated Internet communication. Social media enormously facilitate various hazardous activities of youngsters in terms of mutual informing, experience sharing or even community creation. Several social networking mechanisms (contagion, homophily etc.) are presented along with the threats that are closely related with the dangerous youth fads.
