Kiwi teens face peer pressure for 'nudes'

From Sunday Morning, 7:50 am on 29 October 2017

New research shows almost one in five Kiwi teenagers have been asked for nude or nearly nude pictures in the past year, but only four percent have shared pictures of themselves. Netsafe conducted the research on 14 to 17 year olds and found Kiwi teens were slightly less likely than their Australian and UK counterparts to share explicit images - although around 30 percent had felt peer pressure to do so. Netsafe Chief Executive Martin Cocker talks about the research, ahead of a Australasia's inaugural online safety conference in Sydney next week.
