CALGARY – Crimebeat – Many teens in today’s society are said to be engaging in sexually explicit conversations online and via mobile phones. This includes the sharing of nude photos and videos, but can also include explicit text messages. In Calgary, a 15-year-old boy is currently facing charges of criminal harassment and making child pornography after incidents involving a 14-year-old girl, who was his ex-girlfriend.

There were similar incidents in Thunder Bay, and there have been other serious incidents across Canada. 

Calgary Police – Solving cyberbullying and sexting

A huge majority of victims report that they shared an image or conversation with a single person (usually someone they are in a relationship with), but later report that the images had been shared further than they had anticipated and were not intended for public eyes.

Teens must remember that all electronic content leaves a digital footprint and once shared, is very difficult to remove. These conversations can have a lasting and devastating effect that you may not have originally anticipated.
