Cyberbullies use social media for slut-shaming

Photos and videos of girls engaging in sexual situations are released on Facebook or other social media.  The boys who post the images get a popularity surge, while the girls in the images are shamed in front of peers, educators and family.  Some of the photos and videos are taken without consent and schools are contacting authorities, but even after the images are taken down from the sites, the damage to reputation and  self-esteem lingers.
