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
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

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.

Kik

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

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

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

Only share your kik with people you trust, and you're good.

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

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?

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

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

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

It makes it easy for teens to get away with sending bad pics. They "disappear" after you send, but smart kids know what's on the internet stays on the internet. and also there are lost of underage users but Snapchat does nothing. also people can screen shot what you send and Snapchat will notify you, but there's nothing you can do. . .

It's not even that inappropriate. As far as I know, you can only find people by their username, or on the Nearby page. Most people don't use their real names, so it's not like I can find your Snapchat as easily as I can find your FB page.

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!

It's so dangerous! Your history disappears so you don't have any proof to show your parents and family of cyber bullying.
(by the way I don't have Snapchat I'm just sharing my opinion on how dangerous this app is. People can take screenshots of your posts and then edit it and stick a young girls head on billboards and inappropriate images đŸ˜³

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

Welcome to Tumblr! This is the perfect ticket to the dark web. Countless disturbing images. on more than one occasion I have seen thinspo and pics of anorexic girls. toxic posts about starving to be thin, even "hungry to bed, hungry to rise, makes a girl a smaller SIZE?!"

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.

It's dangerous because of the adventure time "fandom" on it! Please avoid that trash!

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

Facebook Facebook is a corporation and an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California, in the United States.

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.

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.

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

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

Tinder

This, and other apps like Bumble are the reason people are so LAZY. No one wants to get up and make real connections with people. this is a great place for catfishers because its easy to lie when you go behind that keyboard...

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.

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

YES U ARE RIGHT

Whisper

a secret telling app?! Come back when you get new ideas.

1 Anyone smarter than a ROCK knows that once it's online it's no longer a secret.

2 So many posts about self harm anorexia and more

3 Whisper tracks your location so you see secrets from people near you.

Still sounds like a secret?

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.

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

Used to have this. Big mistake

NO ONE GET THIS APP, It's THE WORST. KIDS ARE GETTING TRICKED, NO ONE GET IT. PEOPLE ARE WEIRD ON THIS CHAT. JUST DON'T GET IT.

Meet Me

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

The Contenders
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.

Sounds like an alternative way of spelling Tik Tok.

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.

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.

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.

I agree amino needs to work better on stuff like this

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

Not unless you go into /b/ or other NSFW boards. Most of the times it's safe and you're perfectly anonymous, except if you reveal personal information. Just use common sense and you're fine.

4Chan is really different. There's nobody you will ever know and if you're offended easily, don't get on there. There are ties of serial killers and other people. So if you're young, don't go on this site!

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

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.

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

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.

I hate all social.media did you know that when some one.is going to hire you for a job they look your social.media accounts and most people were going to get hire but did not because of there social media I hate it WHAT'S THE POINT OF IT? I have a phone and I have 4 friend s I hang out with at lunch and 2 of them have phone s including me the other 2 don't and those 2 that have phone s have Instagram and more social media apps and they look at them the whole lunch and I don't have social media and don't what it so me and my other friends they to get them off the phone but it never work s just because of the stupid social.media

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.

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.

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?

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

I remember this app. It's like staring at my grandmum's creepy porcelain doll collection LOL

TikTok

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.

This app has become so dangerous that 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 was my life till I found out children were getting kidnapped off the app. Although I love it, I would not recommend it because of the kidnapping problem.

Starts awful trends like the challenges and also your selling your data to China

Oovoo

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

musical.ly

Personally know of at least three little girls who were contacted by a person who watched their videos and asked them to take their shirts off. To keep it a secret from their parents and even undress more than that. Unfortunately one supposedly did take her shirt off, being an innocent child who didn't know better, but luckily the others went straight to their parents. One of which was a cop and got the I.P. address...though the sicko probably masked his I.P.
IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LET YOUR CHILD USE THIS APP, THEN PLEASE WARN THEM OF THE DANGERS...NOT TO MENTION HOW THE HECK THIS GUY GOT ACCESS TO TALK TO THESE KIDS.

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

This is an amazing app I love it if your looking for someing to let people know your talents this is for u.

Filled with little kids... retarded

Roblox

Everyone's saying hackers and pedos, as well as scammers. It couldn't be truer. My brother was one of the poor fellows who got his account hacked in 2015, so he had to make a new one. I've also gotten mystery logins from Serbia and Russia!

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

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.

Not safe. DO NOT USE. there is a lot of ODers. Most of the time it's a preadtor. I used to have this. And I'm 12, and figured this out on the first day I joined. After five years on the gane, I say, don't. Play. Roblox. If. YOU. ARE. A. KID

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.

Depending on who you follow, it has the potential to be very toxic.

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

Bull that twitter is dangerous, I am offended

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.

YouTube has problems such as in the comment section, where people post almost anything there, leading to cyber bullies posting mean comments to others & even causing fights. Yet other problems are especially the new changes like removing the classic studio, editor & direct messaging, limiting video time to 12 hours, unverifying people & downgrading the Terms of Service along with targeting videos either to kids or adults in the new COPPA change have put YouTube in a serious decline. Yet if you make a mistake with the COPPA law you pay a whopping $42,530 fine. That’s WAY more than most people have in a lifetime. Just one mistake ruins your whole life. YouTube was a mess before & it’s seriously gotten worse.

Too many ads. Also YouTube Movies has movies that are free with ads. But those movies don't actually have ads! But Shh, don't tell them or they'll put you at a run for your money!

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.

Vine

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

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

This app is pretty much the most hateful and ignorant around. They crap on bronies, furries, the FNAF fandom, the Undertale fandom, anime fans, feminists, the LGBTQ+ community (as if we don't go through enough already), and more. They describe everything they don't like with a deadly disease (cancer), they do the same thing with autism. And neither of those are are funny, if you ask me. The homophobia and racism on this app are unreal. I don't recommend this app at all.

This is likely one of the most hateful and ignorant apps I've ever seen. People there start ban-raids on other accounts just because they disagree with them, innocent comments often get removed while hateful ones remain, with *incredibly* unfunny features (half of which are stolen from another Internet source), extreme intolerance and hate for furries/bronies/anyone they dislike, among many other awful things as well. They think autism automatically makes you stupid/horrible, they call things they disagree with "cancer" (Which gets REALLY annoying and tiresome after a while), and the amount of stupidity and bigotry is absolutely unreal. I would avoid this app at all costs.

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.

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.

1 word it had momo

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
