Nude Fijians On Popular Site

Explicit photos and videos of naked young Fijian men and boys have been posted on a social networking site Tumblr.

Police have advised people against accessing it.

An anonymous person is understood to have posted the images.

It is believed the person lured these unsuspecting young men into sending their nude pictures. They were victims of an innocent private chatline that was linked to the website without their knowledge. Their photos and videos have been circulated on other social media websites.

The site which records over 20 million people visits monthly from the United States alone is one of the 100 top sites visitor-wise on the Internet.

The faces of some of the young men and boys were clearly displayed.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said the incident was ‘unfortunate’.

“This is something we cannot rule out from happening especially as there are unscrupulous people who are looking at every opportunity to take advantage of such a situation,” he said.

“We have always raised awareness on the need to be careful about the extent of what you share or divulge about yourself online because you never know who you are dealing with and this is an example of what can happen.”

Brigadier-General Qiliho said they had not received a formal complaint yet.  However, he would welcome anyone who wished to lodge a report.
