Jeremy Hunt, the UK's health secretary, doesn't want kids sexting and he's looking to social media companies to help regulate these dirty, dirty children. During a speech in the House of Commons on Tuesday, Hunt declared that things like sexual imagery and bullying is taking a negative toll on young people's mental health, so he's looking to fight issues like cyberbullying and sexting head on.

"I just ask myself the simple question as to why it is that you can't prevent the texting of sexually explicit images by people under the age of 18, if that’s a lock that parents choose to put on a mobile phone contract. Because there is technology that can identify sexually explicit pictures and prevent it being transmitted," he said."

"I ask myself why we can’t identify cyberbullying when it happens on social media platforms by word pattern recognition, and then prevent it happening. I think there are a lot of things where social media companies could put options in their software that could reduce the risks associated with social media, and I do think that is something which they should actively pursue in a way that hasn’t happened to date."
