Sexting chat rooms
Sending a sexual text, image or video can be dangerous if shared with the wrong person. When sexting goes badly, it can make you feel ashamed, guilty, embarrassed or anxious.
Once you send a message, you're not in control of what happens to it. But there are things you can do to make the situation better and prevent it from happening again. You can't control what someone will do with an image, but having an honest conversation can help to make sure they won't pass it on.
CEO Evan Spiegel actually claims that the app has nothing to do with sexting, explaining in an interview with digitalifetoday, “On Snapchat, any image you send could be saved forever, whether it’s by someone taking a photo with another camera or by someone taking a screenshot, so it’s not a great place to send photos that you want to be secure.” And therein lies the rub: as soon as the text is sent, self-destructing or not, users can take a screenshot that captures the image.
Snapchat doesn’t disallow this, but it does send an alert to the user telling them a screenshot has been taken.
Block someone If someone’s bullying you on Snapchat, blocking them will stop them from sending abusive messages.
Reporting an image or video If you’re under 18 and an indecent or nude pic of you is posted online, that's illegal. You can contact the website directly yourself or make a report about what’s happened to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), who will speak to the website to try and remove it. Making a report can be scary, but our counsellors are here to support you.But blaming the app is kind of missing the point, isn’t it?Tomorrow, we’ll look at how teachers can deal with sexting in the classroom–or outside of it–both directly and indirectly. Yay for technology, hormones, and painful life lessons.It’s difficult to argue the implications of a self-destructing text message; no matter the intent, it’s clearly the connotation.
