The fatal consequences of 'Sexting'

Any thing that can be used, can be misused too. Take communication networks for example. As much as they help marketers take their messages to users, these very networks can sometimes prove fatal for a user.

One victim of such misuse has been Jessica Logan. Now, Jessie's parents are attempting to launch a national campaign seeking laws to address "sexting", the practice of forwarding and posting sexually explicit cell-phone photos online. The Logans also want to warn teens of the harassment, humiliation and bullying that can occur when that photo gets forwarded.

Laws that prevent such misuse is the need of the hour. Regulating technology networks will prove a gargantuan task. The least we can do is enact laws that ward people off from misuse. That would at least be a good start.
