Parents have been warned to be vigilant after an online predator harassed a 14-year-old girl on Snapchat and demanded she send him naked photos.
The teenager told Nine News the man made the vile request and threatened to post fake pictures if she declined.'He said you should send me a picture of yourself,' she told the network.'Every time I had access to Internet there would be several messages there.
"Young people are feeling pressurised to share self-generated sexual images, with many considering it the new online version of flirting.
"Schools reported that girls were self-generating images of themselves and these were being shared amongst students.
Some girls are feeling pressure from their friends to send an image but are then often criticised for this behaviour." In one case, a member of school staff reported the young age at which some children are engaging in this behaviour and they referred to a nine-year-old girl sending nude photos of herself to boys in her class.
"A 16-year-old girl was referred to the ISPCC child and family support service due to concerns of her sharing intimate pictures and content with her male peers.
