Snapchat Smut Alert

For all those parents of kids with smart phones, listen up.

Snapchat allows them to send pictures to their phone contacts and then those pictures delete themselves automatically after a few seconds—kind of like those Mission Impossible top-secret assignments.

Problem? Some kids are using it as a way to send nude photos.

In one case, the recipients of the nude photos took screen shots of them and then distributed the pictures on other social media sites.

It’s a crime to send nude photos and it’s a crime to distribute them.

Parents, it’s time for another discussion with the kids. If your child has a smart phone and has the app Snapchat, it is vital that they know about pornography laws.

Parents looking for sad stories can find plenty of examples. In an ever increasing digitally connected world, the connection we need more than ever is faith in God—Who can protect and provide all we need—not just to survive in the midst of this but to shine His light for others.
