    What to Do to Combat Porn on Social Media

    We will never eradicate porn on social media. However, if we teach our kids what to do when they discover porn, we will help them know how to protect their hearts and minds from this very additive, damaging temptation. Problem solved.

    I am 19 years old and an avid social media user. I know first-hand that in the world of social media, it is virtually impossible for parents to monitor every single platform, text message, and website their child engages in. Parents can put parental guides and restrictions on their child’s device, but this does not block every site, and they can’t stop their kid from seeing ungodly material while with their friends.

    Part of the problem, is that some parents don’t realize how accessible pornography is for children and teens on social media. I use Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Snapchat, and every single one of these platforms has a way to view indecent material. I have not used Tumblr, but I have heard that this site is no different.

    Don’t feel guilty, if you did not know this information. You are not alone. Parents everywhere are unaware of how easy finding pornography has become. I hope that this blog can give you some insight into exactly what we are dealing with in this age of technology.
