Naked pictures being shared on an app where messages are designed to disappear in seconds are being saved and widely reposted online at an alarming rate. Girls and young women are increasingly being left distraught after finding naked photos and videos sent privately on popular social media app Snapchat have later been widely circulated after photos were saved using a screenshot.
Nearly half of female students spoken to in a new survey said they had had an embarrassing photo put online against their will last year. The survey, by cyberbullying awareness group Sticks 'n Stones, spoke to to year-olds from 10 schools across Central Otago.

Hot particular concern is Yik Yak, which the student anti-bullying girls predicts will inflict more harm than the notorious Ask. NetSafe's Martin Cocker said most cyberbullying was no longer confined to direct text messages but happened across multiple communications platforms, apps and social media. It included the anonymous Naked Yak app and Snapchat, the "poster child" for disappearing media.

It's absolutely brutal. She was shocked when she read a vile post young the social app after a runaway was located safe and well. I had hoped she was being tied and raped by the local paedophile'. Ms Sanders said Yik Yak was proving destructive in small towns where the mobile app was developing into a place to shame, gossip and share secrets.
But if you get somewhere within a small community it's so vicious.
