Abuse Victims Turning to YouTube

By Sergio Published on .

Victims of sexual abuse and rape are turning to Web video and social networking sites to air the feelings about being victimized, CNN notes. A 16-year-old girl, identified as Crystal, recently posted a video on YouTube, stating that she had been raped. While some people feel that online confessions are a way to seek help, some warn that giving up too much personal information could cause more damage.
