A disturbing new Facebook game is encouraging kids to disappear. It’s called the ’48-hour challenge.’
The shocking challenge invites children to hide from their parents and loved ones for as long as possible, with participants awarded a higher score every time they are mentioned on social media.
Every mention the ‘missing’ person gets on a social media platform increases their score in the game. Those participating also get more points the longer they manage to go unfound by friends or family.
The latest “challenge” is very similar to the “Game of 72” which shocked the nation in 2015 by telling kids to disappear for 24, 48 or even 72 hours.
