"if someone is forcing you or coercing you to take the picture, which happens so much, young people feel like they have to send it because, that's what you do. " and experts say what's really scary is when those photos fall into the hands of people other than who they were intended for. "there's apps now that have been created to hack io snap chat so you will never know that i have an app that's storing everything.
