Thanks to the magic of technology, couples in long-distance relationships can still have some quality face time. Let Skype provide visuals that phone calls and text messages can’t. You may trust him/her now, but if the relationship doesn’t last, those images might — and come back to haunt you.
Before you Skype your love interest, however, here are some things to know: 1. Before you Skype your significant other, make sure your Internet connection is great. Consider your busy lives — and respective time zones — before scheduling a Skype date.
Few things are more stressful than a Skype conversation that gets frozen and cut off over and over again. Some couples need to schedule a defined Skype-date window that has an end time, too, as chatting online can someone go on without end. Consider where you’re going to be when chatting over Skype. If you’re in a long-term, long-distance relationship, Skype is a way to introduce your partner to the things and people in your life that matter.
Once scheduled, treat the online date with the same respect you would an in-person one and be ready to chat on time. A private location is often best, as your significant other might be self conscious about being seen and heard by strangers in a coffee shop. (Sipping a beverage is fine, but chewing on camera is rarely appealing.) Refrain from Googling witty responses. Give your date your undivided attention, as you would on a dinner date.

"The victim is contacted shortly after by the perpetrator who claims they have videoed the event and demands money.
The victim is told that the video will be posted to their friends and family via social media if they do not pay the money." Men are approached on various sites but "predominantly" through friend requests on Facebook.
