Tech Tidbit: Sexting

All the kids are doing it nowadays. Just ask CBS.

Sexting is the act of having cyber sex via SMS (text message) and/or MMS (photo/video message). Hott!

While sexting is good, clean fun for adults, teen sexting can lead to serious problems. If you are a parent and your child has a cell phone, make sure you have a conversation with him/her about what's appropriate vs. what's inappropriate when using the phone. If that doesn't work, or you don't trust 'em, you can always block the account from sending/receiving messages. Talk to your cell phone provider for more information.

Joe Says: Oh, and if you're a power sexter, you probably want to look into getting an unlimited messaging plan ;)

This is Joe, signing off.
