Privacy and Safety – Another Note

PC Magazine posted an interesting story about sexting. It seems that only teens and congressmen are stupid enough to think that things that are posted on the Internet are private. So you sent that picture with an app that’s supposed to self-destruct (…this message will self-destruct in 10 seconds)? Hopefully, you realized that all someone needs to do is to capture the screen while the image is up? You didn’t think of that? Someone will. Here’s the link:,2817,2413629,00.asp

Have this conversation with your teen…even if you think they don’t need it, and especially if it will embarrass you.
