Meanwhile, MTV has released its own data about digital abuse in youth and young adults through age 24. While I wish they reported the age categories separately, some interesting findings include:
- 1/4 of respondents state they know about an incident where somone took a picture or video of another doing "embarrassing or private things without that person knowing" and then shared them without permission.
- 18% received naked images of another on their cell or over email
- 11% were "pressured" to send a naked pic or video of themselves
- 3% reported posting naked pictures of themselves
While interesting, I look forward to a more thorough analysis of the data. Stay tuned!
