Prevent your kids from becoming accidental porn stars

October 28, 2012

Here’s another good reason to educate your kids and keep them off social media.

Parasite websites are popping up that exist solely to grab suggestive and sexually explicit photos of teens/tweens from Social Media and post them on adult websites.

This is Girls Gone Wild – Social media style.

Children and young people are posting thousands of sexually explicit images of themselves and their peers online, which are then being stolen by porn websites, according to a leading internet safety organisation.

A study by the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) reveals that 88% of self-made sexual or suggestive images and videos posted by young people, often on social networking sites, are taken from their original online location and uploaded on to other websites.

Reams of sexually explicit images and videos are being uploaded by children and young people, the study found. During 47 hours, over a four-week period, a total of 12,224 images and videos were analysed and logged. The majority of these were then mined by “parasite websites” created for the sole purpose of displaying sexually explicit images and videos of young people.
