Technology has given us great sides such as texting, however there is a dark side of texting. Teens are abusing the use of texting today. Texting is opens a window of sending nude pictures of teenagers to their partner. This pornographic way of texting is called sexting. Today, out of a survey of 1200 one out of five teenagers had use texting to send a picture of themselves. “In one case a 17-year-old girl used her cell phone to send nude photos of herself to her boyfriend. After the two broke up, however, the photos began circulating among the other students at their high school.” (Castalia police look into complaint of nude photos sent by cell phone.). So the question is should sexting be charged as child pornography?
