FOR THE BIRDS, AND MOSTLY THE CHILDREN TOO

From Crowd-Surfing to Crowd-Sourcing

To help teens understand the difference between “digital use and digital abuse,” MTV today launched “Over the Line?” an online application that “crowdsources” ideas on digital ethics. The new tool lets teens share and rate stories about sexting, constant messages, spying, cyberbullying, digital-dating abuse and other forms of abuse.

Frontlines from today’s MTV generation, and this dazzling statistic.

Fifty percent of 14 to 24 year olds have been the target of some form of digital abuse and 30 percent have sent or received nude photos of other young people on their cell phones or online, according to a December study released by MTV and the Associated Press.
