Have experienced a lot of cool photo editing apps which are really developing with time. These apps can do anything with your pictures. They can even change an odd looking pic to an image that will blow off your mind. Really, editing images with these stuffs gives a new life to the images.
But with the advancement of these apps, no doubt we are able to do many things with our pictures but don’t you think an Image Editing Software can also be used in performing illegal works?
We all know that every advancement in Science & Technology has its cons and pros. Technology can be used for conservation as well as destruction, but it is we who need to choose the right path.
Technology when used in good purpose brings much betterment to the human society but when used in a wrong way can end up everything.
In the same way, when the ‘Image editing stuffs’ are used for wrong works they can ruin one’s life, bring down one’s respect in the society.
Just some months ago, I was going across a Facebook page and there I got a link to see images of new gadgets; but when I clicked it the link took me to an adult site. In the sidebar of the site I saw the names of almost every Bollywood & Hollywood film actresses. I was shocked seeing their names in an adult site. And when I clicked on their names what I saw was OMG. There were many fake nude pics of actresses. But, the nude pics were fake for sure as I can see that they were edited (not properly). Probably you may have also seen on Facebook that the original movie posters are edited and some other faces are fixed on them. This is a very easy work with the use of a free image editing software.
Now what I want to say about those actresses is that they are surely not having any photo shoot or something like that; but the dirty minds out there are doing this illegal work. They do this to attract visitors and earn money from ad programs.
Now the people who are doing this wrong work can’t even be caught, as again technology helps them. Their locations become untraceable. So, thinking to catch them is not a solution now.
Again, if you say that youngsters can also protest. They can also change the world then you are right as we can. But, before protesting we have to create awareness to bring out many other voices who will also speak up for the betterment of our society.
What I will suggest to the ad click programs is:
The ad click and earn programs should stop approving requests from publishers who have such type of illegal materials (nude pics) in their site.
What we can do?
We Can Take Action..!!
We can report those sites as spam to the search engines. Go to this page and report Google about those sites so that at least they don’t appear in Google Search. By seeing Google other search engines will automatically join the list.
At last if I take Stop Online Piracy Act in mind then what I think is:
Each and every site bearing illegal materials should be banned, so that the Internet can be a cleaner and better place for the kids. It shouldn’t carry such sites which enables anyone to watch illegal videos just by clicking the ‘I am above 18‘ button; rather that type of sites should be closed and the internet should become such a place where we can get lifetime access to free learning sites like Wikipedia.
Take your first step>> If you think this article is beneficial then make your friends aware by sharing this post.
Update: I think these sites should be banned but that’s not so easy. If we at least get together and stop them from appearing in search then also we can do a lot good. I have started a petition “Stop Indexing Illegal Sites” on Change.org. If you think it’s a petition that we should win, then join me in this. Thanks…
