The EU is now making moves, through a new directive, that would effectively quash net neutrality. Net neutrality covers three core principles which allows the internet to remain free and open.

Sexting a Growing Social Trend
SEXTING A GROWING SOCIAL TREND – We are all familiar with the Social Networks, such as Facebook and Pinterest and we often post content that is not always in our best interest, however one growing trend that is causing a lot of embarrassment is that of Sexting, that is sending explicit images of yourself to others via mobile phones and other devices.
According to statistics 1 in 7 people in the UK have sent an explicit image of themselves to the wrong person. Of these mistakes this is broken down into the following:
Friends – 37%
Ex-Partner – 25%
Colleague – 17%
Family Member – 9%
Stranger – 7%
All Others – 5%
In a recent survey, of people who have engaged in Sexting and sent it to the wrong recipient, the results clearly show the level of embarrassment, especially when sent to family members, and none are worse than accidentally sending it to your mother or father.
What is worrying is that Sexting has become a popular pastime for our children who often engage in sending explicit images of themselves to friends and potential boyfriends or girlfriends.
While as adults we are free to engage in almost any sexual act, providing it is consenting and of a legal age, the growing trend of Sexting is certainly a worrying issue for many and none more so than parents.
The UK is now taking steps to reduce our children from being exposed to online pornography but Sexting is a trend that parents should be concerned about and therefore monitor their children’s use of their mobile phones and devices.
From the research currently being undertaken, it appears that most instances of Sexting takes place while under the influence of alcohol. There is no doubt that Sexting is a growing social trend although many, such as myself, fail to see the value in it and certainly wish to ensure that our children are not involved in such a so-called social trend.

In a survey by PiperJaffray of over 5,000 teenagers it clearly shows that Social Networks are being taken over by the rise of the Chat Apps. Are Chat Apps the next big social media offering?
