I've been sick for the last few weeks & downloaded this app on a whim. There are some awesome peeps to be found here, unlike some of the other apps I've found, where it's mostly trolls & creeps.
Great for just chatting or finding out about someone else's country/life!
Strangers might give gifts to kids like a webcam to do explicit things online.
Moreover, you can ask questions online anonymously on any topic and receive answers from the experienced community. Serious writers will undoubtedly be frustrated by the lack of features, but for notes and short blog entries, Paragraphs proves to be a worthy client.
Exposing or distributing very personal photos of someone without his or her consent is a violation of trust that can cause severe embarrassment, harm to a reputation, or other emotional hurt.
Both those forms of victimization are what’s called “aggravated” (criminal or abusive) sexting by researchers at the University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center.
There are some chat rooms that aren't my thing, but those & the creeps/trolls that come along are easily blocked from my home screen; the app even blocks a lot of ppl on its own if anyone breaks any rules.
Super cool, imo, & makes it easy to have awesome convos w/ppl I would otherwise never get to know. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The app itself works as intended, but the user base is awful.
* Sexting as an act of anger, revenge or other social aggression.
This kind of sexting can start out consensual but go very wrong – and harmful.
The practice is not illegal when photos are shared between consenting adults, but when minors are involved, sexual-exploitation and child-pornography laws can come into play, so great care is needed in the handling of sexting cases involving people under 18.
However, although there have been some highly publicized cases, prosecution of minors for distribution of sexting photos has been relatively rare in the US.
But it can definitely be a form of victimization either from the outset or after a break-up or conflict in a relationship.
