Top 5 Teen Apps 2014 Series: Is Snap Chat Safe?

News has just arrived that Snapchat has been leaked. Renata Rowe’s post (below) is timely and reminds us as teachers to have discussions about social networking sites. Any site that claims that users are safe is misleading and sites like snapchat that claim that the images disappear are similarly misleading. Most devices have the capacity to take screenshots meaning that any image online can be simply recorded. Once that is done, it can be reposted therefore rendering the image visible to many eyes again. The false sense of security that users have with these sites needs to be exposed.
