Beware of "sexting"
A recent study*shows that 20% of American teenagers engage in «sexting» and the phenomenon is growing in Canada.

"Sexting" is the act of sending messages or photographs of a sexual nature over cell phones’ text messaging on. Young people send the messages for fun, but do not always realize the consequences. Once the message or photo is sent, the sender loses control over it. And who knows whose hands it may fall into ... her boyfriend, his girlfriend, the neighbour, the school’ bully, a businessman in China ...?

Information travels fast!
