The Unknown Dangers of Sexting

The idea of sexting is one that is unknown to many grown adults yet they are the only ones who seem to understand the consequences. It is believed that over 5 million photos containing nudity are sent via mobile phones every day. This statistic was also given before the introduction of SNAPCHAT in which police have been constantly dealing with issues of people spreading photos of under age women attempting to satisfy their boyfriend, partner or friend by sending nude photos. One photo if screenshot, forwarded, put online or even kept can have disastrous effects later on in life if police or employers get involved. Now that employers and police have access to all 'personal' information anything that ends up on the internet is there forever and for anyone to see. If you go for an interview for a job and an employers see's your image online do yu thin he will really want to hire you? In this modern world of iphones, and access to internet anywhere it is making it harder and harder for anything you do to stay private. But there is a solution and it is actually very simple. If you don't send, you don't worry. Because once it is sent, it is too late. Just by sending one nude image it is breaking FIVE criminal laws and often serious penalties will occur. So think, is sending that picture to him or her really worth it? Think about it.
