You better watch out what photos you upload in Facebook or to any social networking sites for that matter.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation are trying to look for the individuals/s who are responsible for “hijacking” Facebook photos of underage girls from high schools in the state of Massachusetts and post them on a child pornography website.
The Massachusetts link shows pictures of 17 teenage girls who are students from Bay Path Regional Technical High School in Charlton and other schools from the state. The photos shows fully clothed girls with their information that could be used to identify the teens.
The website is being hosted in Ohio but its servers were traced to Eastern Europe.
Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said that the agency is reviewing the matter to find out if any laws were violated.
Many residents from the area were distraught with the news. Tracy Nicholas Cruz said that she has heard from the girls whose photos were posted in the site. She said that, “they were humiliated. They didn’t know how their pictures got exploited. These are good girls.”
She also added that, “It’s just scary to think that your child could just have this site to communicate with other students and her friends and everything, and then something as bad as this other site comes out and takes their pictures? That’s horrible.”
You better watch out what you post online.
