If that person only put reactions and comments in smoothly then don’t go for chat yourself. When you ask can I go for a chat with a person who doesn’t know for me? My answer is yes you can but always be careful when you chat with them. All people don’t be the same but always it better to keep some limits on them. If you are a girl don’t send your personal details including phone numbers and photos. After some years if you have the confidence to make them as your real friends then only you can move with them.

In the same social media has many histories that some are finding life partners through these unknown friend list, some are lost their personal photos and attempt to suicide and some men lost their large amount of money through this social media. So you have the responsibility for your faults. When you chat with an unknown person always keep a limit and be careful with every word until you have to get the confidence of that person. When sometime if you get some weird comments or messages you can block or put out from your friend list. If you are a teenager don’t take over risks. I know most of our love to take risks but it may be lead to you to major problems.


Therefore it’s not a big deal to make unknown friends until you have the huts to handle them. Follow these steps always be careful yourself.
