Children share nude pictures online

first_imgStuff co.nz 15 November 2014Parents need to be aware that primary school-aged children are using social media sites to share naked images of themselves, an internet watchdog says.Netsafe co-launched a guide yesterday to help parents understand the popular online photo-sharing application Instagram.Netsafe’s Lee Chisholm said a primary school had reported concerns about children posting on Instagram naked photos of themselves, which had been viewed by other pupils.“We gave advice to the school about what they could and couldn’t do with the image and suggested talking to the parents about what was going on and reported the photo so it got taken down.”Parents did not need to know every detail of how Instagram worked, but did need to set boundaries for their children. “You don’t have to join Instagram to deal with the challenges of it.”Netsafe had also been contacted by upset Muslim parents who had found photos on Instagram of their daughters without their headscarves. “The high school-aged girls thought they had posted the photo in a private setting, but the family had found them and were upset.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/digital-living/63226015/children-share-nude-pictures-online.htmllast_img read more
