  9. 11. Anonymity Breeds Irresponsibility The problem, say Formspring's critics, is the site offers a perfect haven for cyberbulllying. As the &quot;Edumacation&quot; blog puts it: &quot;Anyone who works with young people can quickly point out that anonymity nearly always breeds irresponsibility.&quot; The recent suicide of 15-year-old Pheobe Prince has drawn attention to the problem of bullying in cyberspace because victims often have no idea who is tormenting them. A Boycott Formspring Group on Facebook claims almost 7,300 members. http://www.dailyfinance.com/story/media/do-you-know-who-your-children-are-online-formsprings-raunchy-f/19452194/?a_dgi=aolshare_email A young person speaks..then tribute http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lyYjZyeN80 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1Y5hH1ScY0&feature=related

  34. 36. Element of coercion for some sexting <ul><li>“ When I was about 14-15 years old, I received/sent these types of pictures. Boys usually ask for them or start that type of conversation. My boyfriend, or someone I really liked asked for them. And I felt like if I didn’t do it, they wouldn’t continue to talk to me. At the time, it was no big deal. But now looking back it was definitely inappropriate and over the line.” - 17 year old girl </li></ul>May 2010

But impulse behind behaviors hasn’t changed – just the vehicle. </li></ul>May 2010
  36. 38.
