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

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.

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!

Kik

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

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

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

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

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

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

It's such a stupid 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

Decent app but you have to be very very careful with it and the content you post

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.

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. . .

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

Nazis, drug addicts, glorifying suicide, and Pro-ana - RoseWeasley

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.

The adventure time fanbase on tumblr will traumatize you!

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

Not helpful app and very harmful 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...

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.

I don't know

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 DOOOONT GEEEET ITTTTT.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Talking Angela

The new updates ruined it. Get IOS 6 to play it with the good updates.

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

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

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?

TikTok

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

Promotes dumbassary like licking toilet seats, dipping your balls in soy sauce, etc.

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.

Gayest app on the planet. Full of plastic people who follow trends. From lil kids for 40yr old celebrities and douchetubers.

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

musical.ly

Once TikTok bought it and reopened it under thier name, it got a lot worse than Musical.ly ever was.

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

Roblox

Which idiot put this on the list? This is t social media, it’s just a game platform for kids.

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

Online daters that's the problem

Vine

Vine is STUPID!

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

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.

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!

Rewind 2018, people begging for subscribers, overadvertising and COPPA made the site worse.

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.

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

There are pedos on there talking proudly about being pedos - RoseWeasley

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

Bull that twitter is dangerous, I am offended

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

IFunny

iFunny? More like NOT Funny.

there is so much racism sexism bullying self harm and more! Playground for creeps.

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.

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.

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

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.
