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

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

God, I hate this site!

2 Snapchat Snapchat Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc Snapchat was made in September 2011

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!

Snapchat is actually a great way to communicate with others. Snapchat is just like texting people. It's not a bad app.

After experience with the app, I guess that's true. As long as you don't communicate with the wrong people. Remember that sending inappropriate photos is illegal if you're under 18. - ethanmeinster

I 100% hate this app!

Dogs are cancer. Delete this crap.

3 Kik

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

To be honest I think kik should been number 8, because it's not that dangerous like everyone thinks. ( it's chilled acually)It's common sense actually, never invite strangers to your messager. Kik is just like any other messager out there. I usually use kik for my real friends, but for strange idiots, I blocked them or hardly never seen them. I'm not that surpised about it. - EdgyDoll510

4 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

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

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.

The adventure time fanbase on tumblr will traumatize you!

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

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

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 Omegle

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

It's basically video chat with strangers. Not such a good idea... - ethanmeinster

It's such a stupid idea

I've seen videos like "Smile dog goes on omegle! "
It's dangerous and you meet people you DON'T KNOW! How scary is that? - KaykayZ

8 Yik Yak

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

9 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

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

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

I like this app but its not the safest

10 Facebook

You don't need to meet anyone now a days, Facebook does the work, where people are easily misunderstood

Cyber bullying is most known on this app

ACCOUNT HACKED

Considering that they collect as much data from you as they can and then sell it to other companies should be declared the most dangerous social media. Besides people have witnessed suicides, rape and I am not sure but I wouldn't be surprised if even murder on Facebook live. I wouldn't trust this app at all. Besides people have gotten fired for just a stupid post.

11 musical.ly

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

Anyone can get your videos and post them anywhere. It’s not safe. Even be careful of this site, there’s thousands of people using it

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 IFunny IFunny

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 it's part of the real world and it's something you shouldn't hide your kid from they 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

Boring and memes you can find anywhere else on the internet

14 Talking Angela

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?

Nothing wrong with this app

It's dangerous! Someone is watching you in her eyes! - KaykayZ

What the? Why is this here? Only contacts can videochat you. - PizzaGuy

Anyone can videochat you, its dangerous

17 4Chan 4Chan 4chan is an English-language imageboard website. Users generally post anonymously, with the most recent posts appearing above the rest.

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.

18 Vine
19 Periscope

There was a video on the news of a woman who went to the club with her friends on Periscope. Eventually, she started drunk driving, and people viewing it called 911. Thankfully, nobody was hurt - BlueTopazIceVanilla

20 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.

21 Reddit

Reddit is just used for making free forums and communities. Maybe it would be dangerous on inappropriate subreddits, but it's generally safe. - CrazyAwesome

A guy could end up pulling out something inappropriate - MissWinnipegJets

26 Discord

Discord is an amazing text and talk site that you can block and friend people completely safe most gamers use it as well!

28 Gab
29 Meet Me

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

30 Snow

Ok, PopJam is THE MOST weirdest app ever, and you can post selfies! I saw a grown up man posting a selfie, and he talks about LGBTQ all the time in front of little kids who play it!
