So from what Ive been seeing and the hysterical reaction of the general public whats the lowdown here. Some people say its super super serious but cant provide links and other people say its just a modern day ghost story urban myth pile of crap. 

Some of whats being reported on facebook is just pure BS and it looks like even schools are getting caught up in the hype and sending letter home to parents warning them of the dangers (if any). 

Whats worrying is that Ive seen read quite a few parents say 'i didnt realise that letting my 7 year old free to use the internet meant that they were at risk, I must delete youtube immediately!'. They just dont seem to get it that letting kids free unsupervised access to their phones and tablets isnt a good thing. 

Thoughts? Your experience?

Parents need to take more responsibility for children's internet safety. Its not all parents but the parents that don't just shouldn't have kids. Momo is a Japanese statue that has actually recently been destroyed due to the videos on YouTube. The videos were discussing telling kids to self harm etc. There are now just stupid 3am videos. YouTube is also stupid mind trying to take responsibility for the parents such as the swearing ban. It is YouTube's fault as much as the parents for letting people see this. But at the end of the day it was in a harmless peppa pig cartoon as YouTube or any parents would never have expected this. I don't know if the channel was shut down but saying that Logan Paul put a dead body on YouTube and his channel is still up so who knows.

The whole Momo thing is an absolute hoax and it's honestly an ongoing internet thing. Every other year or so there's some boogieman that gets parents scared and news stations with cameras at the ready to cover these stories with no verification at all. Parents should of course always be wary of their children's online activity, particularly if they're under 13, but no one's killing themselves over this Momo crap.
