This is not the most comforting of news, especially for parents, but we need to make people aware of the dangers. A recent study conducted by the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), which was carried out over a 47-hour period during four weeks, found that 88 per cent of nude or explicit photos and videos posted by teens online are re-posted without permission.
After looking at 12 224 “suggestive” teen images and videos online, ranging from 68 websites (like Facebook, etc.) it was found that a shocking 10 776 of them had been re-posted on “parasite” porn sites without permission.
