~Sharing revealing pictures of each other teenagers finds it a very good way to show their affection towards each other but girls do not share such contents by any way to anyone because it can turn into something more serious
~Do not submit your personal details on any random links because many of them are created just to get personal information of the user and transfer it to another person.
~Do not hide if such incidents happens with any of you because hiding won’t help you to get rid of such things it will only make you suffer so always take stand against such things.
