  • What files & why?

  • Depends on size. A few kb files can fly across the internet in seconds. If it's got any MB to it then it will take a little longer but then it's just minutes.

  • It depends on what you are talking about but basically with the click of a button then it depends on the speed of the computers involved.

  • Depends on the type of file and interest in them. It only takes a few seconds to a minute for a file to be sent depending on the size of the file. I avoid photo ops of any kind because you don't know who will get a hold of your pic and photoshop it onto someone else's body and god forbid it ends up on some x-rated site or gets sent to your friends, family, employer, future boss, or gets used elsewhere. Once it's out there, it's very hard to get them taken down. Even pics of your children can be used in the worse way. Read the story about the lady whose baby photos were used by an illegal adoption group or people who've found their photos used on dating websites. If you must pose, wear sunglasses.Even when pics are not used illegally, it's creepy. I had a former friend take unknowingly take awful pics of me at a party with his phone cam and I wanted some deleted just but he refused to. Be careful of phone cams!

  • Moral of the story, don't send your boyfriend/ex-boyfriend naked pics/videos. They will go worldwide in a matter of minutes, and you can't do shit to stop it!
