Today’s technology can be used for the greater good—and for bad. We have all seen examples of social media that has been used to humiliate others and gets shared. Cell phone photos and videos can be used to devastate lives. Snapchat posts can humiliate and then vanish, causing lasting damage but without traceability to the abuser.
Abusers can cyberbully while hiding behind an alias identity. Tools can be used to disguise IP addresses and phone numbers.
"Revenge porn" video can be made without the victims' knowledge or consent. Perpetrators often drug their victims, commit assaults on video, and use them to blackmail, control, and further abuse their victims.
Abusers of all kinds—emotional, sexual, and physical—now share tips and information with each other over the dark web. They share pornography and criminal advice on how ensnare more victims.
We at Kindness Daily believe this abuse has reached epic--and largely unnoticed--proportions, affecting people from ALL backgrounds. No one is immune.
LET'S DO SOMETHING TO STOP THIS! JOIN US AT KINDNESS DAILY.
