Top Ten Most Dangerous Social Media Apps

ethanmeinster
Who's anymonous? {block} I learned about these dangerous apps when at a social media seminar. By dangerous, I mean easy exposure to online predators, inappropriate content, and cyber bullying.

The Top Ten

1 Ask.fm

This app is used for cyber bullying and sexual harrasment its also used for child predators and for people to actually urge people to commit suicide! This website needs to be taken down!

I once read a story about someone who used this. She sent anonymous hateful messages to herself, then later committed suicide.

Several suicides have been linked to this app across Ireland. People can ask anonymous questions and torment others. There's also sexual harassment. Many of my female classmates have been solicited for sex on this app, by this unknown person. It could've been a classmate joking around or a 50 year old pedophile. My friend told me that someone close to her was cutting because of all the cyber bullying she experienced on this app - ethanmeinster

I think this site is stupid.

And I've heard stories of trolls and bullies. - Lunala

I have had someone take a naked pic of me in a locker room and then post it on snapchat to her story where everyone could see it I was humiliated and I still am!

3 Kik

There are a lot of pedophiles on this website. That’s why I deleted my account.

Many ignorant teens put their Kik account name on their Instagram bio. This would make them vulnerable to complete strangers and online predators. - ethanmeinster

After what happened to that girl at Virginia tech kik is a very dangerous site for younger kids with no common sense

Oh yeah, I've heard of this app before. I knew it was dangerous. - nintendofan126

4 Omegle

This is so ridiculous and unsafe

It lets you talk to strangers, which is creepy if you think about it.

I have tried to go on this app before to try and make and friend, but all I found was old people jacking off
i've also watched videos of people in omegle and oh boy the was a roller coster

I tried going on once, here's the types of people on here

The Perv: The most common person on here. Some 30 year old jacking off

The Kiddo: Some 8 year old looking for girls because, that's what the kids do

The Predators: These are real people and if you see a man over 40 on here instantly close out. They sometimes use videos of girls to lure in little boys "stranger may be using a simulated cam" is a red flag

The Bots: robots putting up ads for other chat sites

The Real People: Very rarely, you will find a nice person on here to talk to. But, this is really rare - Yatagarasu

5 Facebook

I used to be on facebook, I deleted mine in 2017, and one day in 2015 someone tried hacking my facebook I got a log in alert, I was lucky to be online to dc them - trains45

Thankfully I don't have Facebook. There are lots of cyber bullies on the Internet. Especially the ones that tell victims to commit suicide.

Too much algorithmetric controls in community standards and policies, that they do not allow us to post any content. It is too much bias and hypocrite on that platform.

Hacked tokens

6 Tinder

Absolutely disgusting app! Lots of marriages have been damaged and or destroyed by this garbage. Lives are ruined by it as well

This app is of the devil. You can pretend to be anyone and cause only horny people enter there you can guess what things could happen to you..Lord knows I warned you.

YES U ARE RIGHT

7 Whisper

You're basically giving your secrets out to strangers, thinking that it's safe. However, the app lets you talk to people near you, making you lose anonymity. - ethanmeinster

8 Avakin Life

This game is a haven for pedophiles. Kids are sexed up with provocative clothes and suggestive dances, and exposed to players of all ages, In a dating site format where kids get to present themselves as single, married, divorced, in a relationship, etc., and indicate what gender they are looking for, just like any regular dating site. A 13 year old can easily befriend a 40 or 50 year old, invite them to his or her house, get into bed or into a hot tub, and have a conversation in a private chat, with only a censorship program to protect them, which the kids can easily trick. In fact, for them it is a fun challenge to bypass the censorship and be able to curse and talk about sex. Most contests on Avakin are held via Instagram, so kids have an incentive to get an Instagram account, through which they can share photos and all kinds of information. Already a 13 year old girl was targeted by a pedophile through Avakin life. But instead of protecting the children, the game developers have ...more

9 Tumblr Tumblr Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007, and owned by Oath Inc.

This was multiple layers below the dark web before it was somehow surfaced.

It's cool to see their posts though... - KaykayZ

I personally really like Tumblr because I only follow blogs that I know are safe. Most of the site is REALLY bad though. Lots of arguments and the userbase has a really aggressive mindset.

Be careful when on this site. Many adult content can be found here. - ethanmeinster

10 Yik Yak

If you have never been to a gossipy college you have no idea how bad it is. This app is used for bullying those who are different or who rubbed the wrong way with some people. They banned names so users make codes, but it is still obvious who they are talking about. Sometimes users write distinguishing features about the target, and it sows hate towards certain groups of people. Horrible.

Sounds like an alternative way of spelling Tik Tok. - XxembermasterxX

You can anonymously chat with people within 500 meters. This has caused whole schools to face rampant online bullying. - ethanmeinster

The Newcomers

? Fortnite: Battle Royale

Little kids shoot people and build stuff nad can commit suiceide in the game

It is dangerouse hackers can see wwhere you live and track u down

The Contenders

11 Meet Me

Don't know what this is. But it doesn't sound good - Yatagarasu

12 Oovoo

OoVoo is safe because you can chat with who you choose and generally your friends are people you know.

It's basically like skype. Added a stranger who turned out to be some pedophile forcing you to send nudes? Your problem. Could've prevented it with one click of the ignore button. - vashappenin

13 Instagram

One of the main points of Instagram is to get likes. This encourages people to try to get more popular by posting photos publicly, though there is a private account button. There's also direct messaging you can get from anybody. No one else sees it, so it can easily be used for inappropriate content. I've been cyber bullied on Instagram before, but it doesn't happen as often as it does on some of these other apps. - ethanmeinster

I have that app, but I keep it private so people I don't know who wants me to accept their request, I'll decline. As long if it's my real life friend's friends. - KaykayZ

As long as the account's on private and you don't accept ghosts who could turn out to be pedophiles, its fine.

I love this app!

14 musical.ly

This app can lure pedophiles

Musically is a dangerous app. It may seem fun and fine but it will get your kids to commit suicide. The comments on musically cause all that

Filled with little kids... retarded

I have it, but it's dangerous - KaykayZ

15 Talking Angela

I remember hearing about bad things about this app in 2014 I don't think I heard about kids being kidnapped, and if you put it in child mode she would of just copied you just like talking tom and ben do - trains45

It's not a social media app but the rumor was never real?! Because of you guys they removed chat?! - Ilovestephanie

That isn't a social media app, but I heard there is a pedophile in her eyes. And some children got kidnapped. So don't download it. I deleted it right away. And the taking care of her app.

Just a hoax. It has been proven that no kids were missing. If so you would hear it all over the news - Yatagarasu

This app its pretty weird. It ask you a lot of questions and just boring. I don't know what's so dangerous about this app?

16 Vine

Vine is STUPID!

17 IFunny IFunny

I go on IFunny every Friday - 23windomt

This app is rated 17yrs+ for good reasons. Your kid has a brain let them use it to determine what is right and what is wrong. Ever heard of trends? Because the other comments about this app obviously haven't. It's a great app and often brightens my day so if your kid is "too young" then don't let them on the app. But personally this is a great hilarious app. There is no "ban raids" the only people that are banned are people that post spam or abusive comments. They only get banned if the iFunny team sees that it is fit. There is some bullying on the app but again if you don't like what people are saying it's easy enough to close the app or delete it. Your kid should be smart enough to know when enough is enough and to shut the app. Great app 10/10

Are you kidding me? This is absolutely fun app. I have an account on IFunny and I make a lot of stuff but I make sure I have limits to what I make so that I won't make anything offensive to anyone. - JaysTop10List

Hey ifunny is the best! I'm 13 and there isn't anything awful on there. It's made to make you laugh, and make your day just a little bit better.

18 Roblox Roblox

I hate roblox this game should be banned online daters, kidnappers come on this game I would like roblox If it didn’t have a chatting log or chatting section or anything with chatting I would love it.

There are online daters and pedos galore. People say innapropriate things in the chat and hackers can do innapropriate things. - yuunai

Online daters that's the problem - Mranonymously

Alright to those brainwashed kids who thinks ODers are dangerous, listen. First of all, ODers are just kids who wanna roleplay, and if they are predators, I have a good idea how to get rid of them. IGNORE THEM! Seriously guys, enjoy the game instead of just going like " THERE IS AN ODER! I MUST QUIT THIS GAME! " Guys... if you do not enjoy this game, I would understand, but just stop the ODer problem.

22 4Chan 4Chan 4chan is an English-language imageboard website. Users generally post anonymously, with the most recent posts appearing above the rest.

I voted to comment, not to vote. 4chan is not dangerous at all, unless you give out vital information, but it tells you not to, and the danger will be in the form of harassment, if the people even bother to do so, that is - TheSwagsonbeast

You could say this is the place where the normal web meets the deep web. There's all these raids on the site, and lots of content that is NSFW.

23 Skype Skype Skype is an application that provides video chat and voice call services. Users may exchange such digital documents as images, text, video and any other, and may transmit both text and video messages.

You'll find more and more mean comments than on Facebook and Instagram. - Croy987

There are billions of people using it, so be careful - KaykayZ

25 Amino

Team Amino hardly takes action to prevent harassment and bullying. They also allow sexual based text in private chatrooms and unlisted communities. They're also always bringing out terrible updates and features.

Filled with different fandoms and communities amino can make people feel lonely and sad and has a terrible moderation team, a pedophile was reported several times and team amino made no attempt to stop him as he ran around a community he made with over 4,000 members perving on multiple underaged girls.

Safe if you only add friends. I'm allowed Facebook + Messenger in 1 month. I can finally use animal filters on me without having to have Snapchat (which I'm nt allowed$ - Lunala

30 8Chan

8Chan is basically a version of 4Chan without any rules whatsoever, there is a reason why this site isn't listed on Google. Also, in order to access the site without getting DDoSed by a random user, for the live of God, use TOR.
