And an X-rated picture is going to be viewed by an entirely different class of people, and not people you want your children to be seen by.

I agree with Kelly. The point isn't that your average run of the mill picture is going to spread that quickly. It's to discourage them from posting (or texting a pic that someone else might post for you) inappropriate pictures. Something "juicy" which will spread much faster. Maybe not as fast or as far as the teacher's pic, but hopefully the kids will get the point. Maybe they will think twice about sending their boyfriend or girlfriend those nude pics. "Sexting" is running rampant (especially with Snapchat) among our high school students.

Mark you are very wrong. Pics on social media can spread like wild fire. It was done to show kids how fast pics spread. To make them think twice about posting pics they don't want anyone other than friends to see. You don't think a nude or x-rated pic wouldn't spread just as fast or even faster? Don't fool yourself. It happens everyday.
