Have you ever had a parent or caregiver ask to see your Instagram or Snap photos, or follow you on social media? Have they ever asked to see what new apps you have on your phone and asked for access to them?

How closely do your parents monitor your social media use?

Video-Messaging Apps

Video apps like Marco Polo, House Party and FireChat are the new chat rooms (which in turn were the new party lines, but never mind).

Marco Polo, which has been downloaded at least 10 million times on the Google Play Store, touts itself as a video “walkie-talkie.” You make a video and send it. In response your friend makes a video. All the videos live in a queue; you add a video when it’s convenient.

“If for some reason someone was bullying someone,” said Vlada Bortnik, the creator of Marco Polo, “we would take the steps to make sure our platform stays safe and probably remove them from the platform.” (Blocking someone is also an option.)

Yellow

Yellow, which has been called “Tinder for teens” (swipe right if you want to become friends with someone; swipe left if you don’t), opens with a geo-locator. There is a 13-year-old age minimum, which there’s no way of verifying.

Flipping through Yellow is like watching an MTV beach party from the 1990s, with countless photos of shirtless teenagers looking to “make new friends.”

It’s not hard to wreak havoc with a false profile using a real schoolmate’s name.

In an email, Marc-Antoine Durand, the head of community and safety at Yellow, wrote that the company is addressing parents’ concerns by prioritizing emails that are sent through the settings feature of the app. Yellow also has a team of “human moderators” who look at potentially fake content and impostor accounts. “Users who do create fake profiles or share inappropriate content are blocked and removed from Yellow,” Mr. Durand wrote.

Anonymous Apps

Anonymous apps have been developed for people interested in a faceless and nameless documentation of their lives (as opposed to a selfie), drawing in children who learned from earlier generations about the consequences of an offensive online footprint. (For example, Harvard University withdrew admission offers to 10 incoming freshmen in June because of obscene Facebook posts.)

There are a number of anonymous apps on the market — After School, Sarahah, SayAt.Me, Monkey and Ask.Fm are some of the most popular — all of them promising the same feature: Spill intimate feelings about yourself or, on the flip side, spread rumors and attack friends, without any trace of who said what.

SayAt.Me has been under scrutiny since the death of George Hessay, 15, from East Yorkshire, England, who committed suicide in May after reportedly receiving bullying messages on the app.

    1.I used Instagram already.
    2.No because i don’t use app that much.
    3.I am not parents, but i think yes because it’s not good for young students.
    4.Again I am not parents, but i think Anonymous Apps is dangerous because we
    can see in the example some people are abuse Anonymous Apps.

    4. I would be worried. Because children could get language violence and cyber-bullying. On the article, Vlada Bortnik, the creator of Marco Polo said “If for some reason someone was bullying someone.” If I were the children who got bad cyber-bullying, I would have wanted to die. Many children would be shocked by mental violence, and really some Apps even bring their children to death. ‘SayAt. Me has been under scrutiny since the death of George Hessay, 15, from East Yorkshine. England ,who committed suicide in May after reportedly receiving bullying messages on the apps.’
    I think every apps should have their own accounts not anonymous  to punish them who was attacker. Also We have to get interested actively and improve this problem.

    #4. I think those apps above are potentially dangerous. This is because usage of those apps can lead to physical addiction. Children can easily get obsessed to applications such as Marco Polo and House Party. Addictions can affect children’s school activities and life. Moreover, anonymous applications can bring negative results to the users. Because their information are hidden, they can ask or write anything they want, whether it has a violent or inappropriate meanings. Thus, if I were a parent I would be very worried if my children use the apps explained above.

    2. Do you hide your app use from your parents or caregivers?
    Why or why not?

    I don’t have any passwords or passcodes for my electrical devices and apps. That means I do not hide my app use from my parents. The reason why I think children should not lock their phones is because parents have responsibilities to keep their children safe from harmful materials. However, most of the older kids like adolescents want to have a life of their own, and they prefer to hide their app use from their parents. Therefore, both parents and kids should find out a point of compromise. Kids should not hide their app use from their parents and understand why parents are monitoring their phone, and parents should simultaneously protect their children by checking through their kid’s things and keep their children’s privacy.
