Child porn on Myspace and model mistakes

I heard on MSNBC about a 14 year old girl posing nude photos on Myspace and getting in trouble about it.

Oh god!

I get approached by many girls on Myspace about modeling. I try to always stress that Myspace is not way to market yourself as a model. And that the photos you show can hurt you. Showing yourself in a revealing or semi-nude or fully nude, or in a suggestive pose is not what you do with your Myspace page.

I tell the girls to TAKE OFF the sleezy or slutty, or bad photos.

Because I give advice on modeling, because I have a radio show and I advocate on the web I use social networking as a portal to connect and share my tips but I do not promote myself as a model on Myspace or Facebook.

I do have a website but it is to promote my story, my book, my radio show and I do share a portfolio of images, but the photos are not nude.

Early in my modeling pursuits, when I was curious about the word model I did make photo-on-the-web mistakes. (Mentioned in my book Almost 5'4")

Back then I didn't tell anyone about my "photos on the web" but today it seems it is a growing trend that girls post flaunting photos on the web.

It is easy to become a naive nude girl on the internet. Not thinking about how damaging it can be to present your self in the wrong way.

Mostly a girl should be thinking about her future, her goals in life and should take the internet seriously. The internet is NOT a playground.

Usually a girl who shows off flaunting nude photos wants to be a model, wants to be wanted, but being another internet nude model, having a paid site and all is NOT modeling.

This is a video called: Just Say no to Internet modeling:


If a girl really wants to model, she should be careful about the way she presents herself on the web. Modeling is not about showing yourself nude on the web. Many girls think that showing their photos on the web is something that stays on the web, it isn't. How you present yourself is a very serious thing and you should be aware of the photos you show.
