It is a Q&A site where users can ask other users questions anonymously. In 2014, its new owners pledged to crack down on bullying or said they would shut down the site.The problem is that kids sometimes target one person and the questions get nasty. That way, whenever a new app is downloaded by the teen, it will automatically download to the parent's phone as well. Last fall, there was a headline-making case in a Colorado high school where teens used apps to hide a huge sexting ring from parents and school officials.And an Alabama district attorney, Pamela Casey, posted the video below to warn parents about the Calculator% app.
And the rating system can be used for cyber-bullying; a group of kids can target another kid and intentionally make his/her rating go down.
Again, by promising a complete delete, kids could feel more comfortable revealing more than what they would do otherwise.
And again, capturing a screenshot so that the message can be shared and lives forever, may be the app's Achilles' heel.
But the biggest shock may come to your credit card: Your kid can rack up some hefty in-app charges on Line as well.
While the app says that minors need their parents' permission to use it, there is no monitoring to ensure this takes place.
