Updated: May 30, 2022

Technology facilitated sexual violence or TFSV, is a term that was created to describe digitally-focused harassment that can include sexual harassment, gender, and sexuality-based harassment, cyberstalking, image-based sexual exploitation, revenge porn, sexual abuse, and violence. And unfortunately, the violence doesn't always stop there. More and more we are seeing cases of murder facilitated through dating apps. Today, Emily will share two cases, both tragedies that occurred when two people made a connection on the popular dating site Plenty Of Fish. These are the murders of Ingrid Lyne and Christine Wood.
