dc.description.abstract Teens in today’s society have extensive access to cell phones, with 3 out of every 4 owning one. Cell phones allow youth to keep in touch with parents and friends alike, and serve as a communications safety line in difficult situations. Sending and receiving text messages via one’s cell phone has become extremely popular, especially among adolescents. One recent study estimated that teens send or receive an average of 3,000 text messages each month. In addition to sending text-based messages, many cell phones also allow users to send pictures and video. While there are many positives associated with this instant ability to connect, communicate, and share, it also creates several potential problems. One such issue of concern that has emerged is referred to as “sexting.” (Author Abstract) en_US
