In conjunction with Safer Internet Day (SID) 2016, Webwise (the Irish Internet Safety Centre), launched a new teen awareness social media campaign addressing the topic of sexting and the potential consequences.

The focal point of the campaign is a short video titled 'Forever'. The video looks at how easily trust can be broken between two people and the consequences of sharing images without permission.

The video has been one of the stand-out elements of Webwise's SID 2016 campaign. To date it has reached over 1.2 million views on social media, 15,507 Likes on Facebook and 10,421 shares across social networks. Not only did this campaign engage teens, it also captured the attention of thousands of parents across Ireland and ignited many interesting thoughts and conversations on the topic from both audiences.
 
The Forever video was also supported by a campaign website offering information and support for teens.
