Top Ten Most Dangerous Social Media Apps

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

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.

I think this site is stupid.

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

2 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

I think it's safe if you give your Kik to just a small group of friends. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

It's such a stupid idea

4 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!

No privacy people can look on maps and track down where you live. - 23windomt

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!

5 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.

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

6 Facebook

Top 1 Most Dangerous Social Media Apps.
Very most wanted app it.

Rather toxic place. Many discussions I've watched are on very low level, mostly name-calling intead of actual arguments. The requirement to use real identity doesn't help at all, it's like everyone gets some kind of internet rage. I've seen social sites allowing more anonimity where the users can be much more civile.

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.

7 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

8 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

9 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

10 Meet Me

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

The Contenders

11 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.

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

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

12 Amino

The problems are not well-dealt with at all! I was once scammed by a pedo and they asked for nudes. I reported him, and nothing was done! Team Amino literally did nothing.
A close friend of mine was also targeted by someone, but of our age. My friend was led to believe this other person was a transgender male who loved her, and my friend loved "him" back. Turns out (since I got to talking with "him"), that SHE was actually just a cis lesbian female who had a crush on my friend. My friend was in tears when I broke the news to her.
I feel bad for anyone who comes into this app unaware and ignorant to the dangers and emotional threats that come with 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.

I agree amino needs to work better on stuff like this

13 Instagram

A friend of mine made an account once on the page not the app, but then found out that it knew her location! Every time you log in, it tracks that location.

And we checked the privacy settings on instagram, they have share or not share your location but not a don't track me, and her location settings on her device (tablet) wasn't even on! I think it's creepy even if the page only sees this.

And here's another thing:
You need to make an account to even SEE any posts! Yes, you NEED to have an account. And the page wants your email or phone number plus your real first AND last name!

One more fact:
If you search instagram hack or a similar search, instead of seeing stuff about preventing hackings on instagram, you see stuff about how to HACK INSTAGRAM!

So, I recommend you to NOT use instagram, and don't let your children use it. I recommend for your kids, messenger kids on facebook.

And also this page, you don't need an account AND you can see ...more

THIS APP IS SO STUPID
why the hell would someone subject themselves to this kind of stuff?

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.

14 4Chan 4chan is an English-language imageboard website. Users generally post anonymously, with the most recent posts appearing above the rest.

Hold up, most of the perv and pedos probably don't have jobs (they are degenerates) and really the are just not safe for the society, NSFS

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.

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 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

17 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

This app can lure pedophiles

I have it, but it's dangerous - KaykayZ

18 TikTok

Is the best app for kids they can try to do dances and express them selves my little girl did not talk a lot but 3 weeks later she was talking a lot and dancing and dressing like herself again your kids should get it

If you think this is for kids then I would respectfully disagree. - Frogg

This app has become so dangerous parents are urged to keep their children away from it. With all the dangerous features people are at risk, especially children and teens. It’s more for grown ups and people have been in danger from this app.

Tiktok is what keeps me going... watching big influencers have fun doing dance trends and being funny and making me laugh, and for those who had claimed for there to be no saftey settings,that's a le as I have mine on a private account so only people I accept to follow me can and there's a setting where you can set so only certain people can view a post.

TikTok was my life till I found out Children where getting kidnap off the app although I love it I would not recommend because of the kidnapping problem.

19 Roblox

People say mean things and I got bullied cause of it I got very discouraged and I did not want to live anymore very bad app DO NOT GET IT PLEASE

If you hate roblox so bad then why did you get or even play it? It’s a great game to me. I did met random plays but some became my best friends

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

20 Vine

Vine is STUPID!

Vine, very unsafe... kept me up for hours laughing... its had me dead

21 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. 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.

The homophobia and racism on this app is unreal..

22 YouTube YouTube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion.

95% of the people in the comments section are ignorant, arrogant, and are always looking to start fights. I would only recommend for the videos. Do not even glance at the comments...

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

The comment section is so god awfull - Mranonymously

Yup. People post whatever they want & some even cyber bully one another & cause outrageous fights. - SamanthaRosie

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

23 Twitter Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, "tweets," restricted to 140 characters.

This App has been a trap to so many people I'm surprised its still up.

It's full of haters. Social media is the curse of the 21st century.

Bull that twitter is dangerous, I am offended

Trump. enough said.

I have to call bull on that comment just because someone is on the website that you don't like doesn't make it a bad site gosh - Thecyanryan

24 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

25 WhatsApp

Do not download it its really inappropiate. This random person that I don't even know who he is sending me a nude pics of him by the beginning of a dial number +91.It's A MASSIVE HAZARD. Don't do it.

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

It’s an odd site that lots of teens use where other strangers can send anonymous messages to them which could be rude and insulting which can cause severe anonymous bullying

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!

31 Likee

This is very unsafe and is a big help for child predators and shouldn’t be an app Tik Tik is much safer

Rampant with pedophiles.

Not safe. Just like tiktok.

32 8Chan

This was linked to 3 mass shootings in 2019, including the Cielo Vista Walmart shooting in El Paso that killed 22. People in the forums were promoting gun violence. Dangerous. - SamanthaRosie

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.

L.A

39 Snow

Snow is a hacker paradise. It’s like snapkiz it lures you to the danger. You would not believe all the dangers that lie within.

40 IMVU

Horrible, I must say. Long story short, you can interact with men over the age of 30 to about 80. THIS IS NOT SAFE FOR KIDS! You can strip, for money, again not for kids, and have LOTS of sex. Do not recommend.

Imvu is a sexual things where kids can lie about there and don dirty things like twerk for money strip and have lots of sex. I belive imvu should be banned. I usedx to have it and it caused lots of trouble for me
