Fun game but  Warning!! This app may be used to lure children into secluded places the game is already linked to injuries, bad driving and opportunistic robberies.

Okay everyone is Pokemon crazy, after walking 5 miles around NYC, I was into it. But I could not help but  thinking about  Safety Tips for playing this game and understanding it!

-Kids are distracted, are far more open to talk to strangers who are playing the game, so make sure that you know where they are and don’t let them play solo, before they know it they are out of their comfort zone. The Pokeman makes it fun to explore and go to new places.

-Kids are ignoring "stranger danger", and falling for fake posts that are on instagram and snap chat in there neighborhoods.

-knowing where the Pokemon is and the predators wait

-eyes rare glued to screen bumping into people, loosing track of where they are

-going out and leaving the familiar area, walking further then they realize

The game could be manipulated by break ins to system

-the game can lure kids to water for “water species Pokemon”

-Also bring a charger with you when you play, batteries on phone get used very quickly 

- Commissioner of NYC Bill Bratton, hates this game, due to the accidents and robberies that have been happening around NYC http://nypost.com/2016/07/14/nypd-commissioner-bill-bratton-hates-pokemon-go/

-Is something more sinister going on? Just think, tracking our moves, leading us to new places, and its only a matter of time before big business uses this for advertising at sporting events, dragging us to restaurants we never would have visited.  As a entrepreneur I think its not a fad, its a trend of more to come.
