Tech Stocks Roundup: Apple, Facebook vs. Sexting, Nude Photos

Apple  (AAPL) – Get Apple Inc. Report is modifying its anti-sexting tool to protect child iPhone users from nude images in a feature that will notify underage users before they send or open a text message with nude photos.

But the company now says the tool will not also notify the child’s parents about explicit images. The decision has been met with a mixed response from child safety and privacy advocates.

“They should have kept parental notifications for kids under 13. There’s no reason we should ask an 11-year-old to keep herself safe online,” the Wall Street Journal quoted Stephen Balkam, chief executive officer of the nonprofit Family Online Safety Institute, as saying in a published report.
