In today's scenario where every development is benefitting us, there is one or the other negative effect attached with it. To cite an example of the above given statement is mobile phone.
As per a research, which has been appeared in the journal Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, it has been revealed that it has become quite common for teenagers to send explicit messages from their mobile phones.
The research was carried out through the University of Texas, which is in Galveston. The study researchers were of the view that youngsters feel wanted and loved by sending and receiving such messages and especially the ones, who are gays and lesbians.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study research said they assessed seven high schools in Texas, and found that 28% students have sent explicit messages and other 31% had asked the same from the receiver.
It shall, however, be noted that girls do feel little shy to send and receive such messages, but not boys. "This behavior shows the power of peer pressure and the drive for girls and boys to be liked, and to do what they have to do", said the study researchers.
