SEXTING, SEXTORTION AND REVENGE PORN 

Sexting is when you take and share an intimate image with someone else. While it is becoming a problem for adults and seniors, it is an especially challenging problem for teens and preteens. Minors taking them have been charged with the production, distribution and possession of child pornography in many jurisdictions.

Adults and teens have been victimized by people they trusted not to share their intimate images. After a bad breakup, they may have their intimate images broadcast to everyone online. This is called "revenge porn." And it is a growing problem that often results in self-harm, destroyed lives and even suicide. MORE
