I know I say this all the time, but I can't stress this enough: You need to be up-to-date on all your social media privacy settings!
One girl learned the hard way when a teacher at an English secondary school swiped photos of her students from their Facebook profiles for a presentation on social networking. Bikini photos of a 15-year-old were then flashed in front of hundreds of students.
Other students photos were used, but no one else was so skimpily clothed. The victim's mother was horrified.
"She's really upset and hurt and this has knocked her confidence, she's not the type of girl who likes attention like this," the girl's mom said, "She's a tom-boy, she doesn't wear make-up and she doesn't even have her ears pierced. It's not often you even get her in a bikini."
The school has apologized on behalf of the teacher, but still defends the message that the teacher was trying to get across to her students.
"She wanted to illustrate how freely available such images are, through the internet. We are really sorry for the way in which this important message was delivered. This was an error of judgement: the member of staff had not intended to cause any embarrassment," a spokesperson said.
What do you think? Did this teacher cross the line? Or was the student not vigilant enough with her privacy settings? Let me know in the comments below.
