Teens These Days

I'm friends with my 2 teen mentees on Facebook. Only 1 goes on regularly, but I've been seeing the way she interacts with others and more importantly -the way boys interact with her.

Comment Posted by Random "Selfied" Dude: 
Tbh: i like ur eyes o.o but u stranger ._. We should change that :)
Date or pass: Date

-"Tbh" translated means "To Be Honest" which is used before almost every sentence the teens post for some reason. Often these comments guys make will say 3 things: 

1. A statement of "Tbh, I don't know you/ we're strangers..."
2. We should meet/message each other
3. A "rating" of the girl's physical appearance -in this case a 10

All of this reminds me of Linked-In only instead of giving endorsements your rating someone on their datability/ appearance. I don't like it. She's only 14 years old. All she's learning from guys is that you gain approval/ acceptance from them if you post hot "selfies" and message them with flirting.
