Social media and the internet allows us to share videos, music, information, and photos. We can share these with hundreds, thousands, and sometimes millions of people- without us even knowing. Sometimes when you share with someone you trust, they may break that trust and share it others. What you would do? - Have you ever shared a photo online, like this girl in the video? - Based on your own experiences, is this an issue in your community? - Let's choose a different...
