1 in 10 Teenagers Have Had Sexual Pictures Of Themselves Shared Online

Over 1 in 10 young people between 15 and 18 have had sexual images of themselves shared online without their consent.

That’s according to a study on cyberbullying and sexting among young people.

According to the Irish Independent, the issue was raised at the World Anti-Bullying Forum at DCU yesterday.
