A teenage revenge porn victim who had fake images of her shared on an x-rated site has backed calls for changes to sexual abuse laws. It was from a moderator on this particular website suggesting I do not upload explicit pictures of myself under my own name in case a potential employer sees it. The student said she was so concerned about what she would find upon clicking the link that she contacted the police, who sent an officer to her halls of residence to investigate. Nothing is really ever gone from the internet, is it?
Earlier this year, psychologists found robust cross-cultural evidence linking social media use to body image concerns, dieting, body surveillance, a drive for thinness and self-objectification in adolescents. Visual platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat deliver the tools that allow teens to earn approval for their appearance and compare themselves to others. The most vulnerable users, researchers say, are the ones who spend most of their time posting, commenting on and comparing themselves to photos. One study found that female college students who did this on Facebook were more likely to link their self-worth to their looks.
