CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A Charlotte father is warning parents about a type of social media he said could expose children to graphic images.

Mark Bink told WSOC about the pornographic picture his 10-year-old daughter received through the app Kik.

“I’m like, ‘Oh, my God.’ First thing I did was start questioning what happened,” Bink said.

The message contained a pornographic picture of adults.
