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

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.

2 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'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 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. . .

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

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

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.

4 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.

It's possible that I might get on to it real soon, after I get my account set up.
Any reconsiderations?

5 Kik

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

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

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.

6 Tinder

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.

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

7 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

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.

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?

9 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.

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?!"

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

It's dangerous because you can die from cringe. You can die from cuphead fan art.

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.

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.

The Contenders
11 Meet Me

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

12 Oovoo

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

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

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 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.

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

14 TikTok

The app has become so dangerous that parents have even urged their kids to stop using it my own mother deleted it from my cell phone children are getting kidnapped off the app! l used to love tik tok now it's just like instagram facebook and snapchat so yeah l will be uninstalling because my friend, Sophia got kidnapped DO NOT RECOMMEND

It sucks so bad. The app is so toxic and the people on it are so suggestive in their attire and dances. It is just bad, don't go on it.

Also China owns it, and there's no safety settings.

It's stupid anyways! So why make it to begin with! Wanna watch some funny vines? Then watch the older vines back in 2015 like Thomas Sanders and Zach King.

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.

15 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

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

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

16 Roblox

Well at least Roblox is doing something about it. If you make an online game no matter what you do there will be terrible people.

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!

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.

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

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

This asked for my phone verification code, last winter when I was 17 and wasn't allowed to own a phone just yet. But since I have one now, I think I might go back.

Seriously, why isn't this app higher? You have a 100% chance of getting cancelled unless your a KPOP stan or star.

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

Political lies and general talk show like mudslinging and fake news.

18 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?!

That app is getting old now, but glad they removed chat so the man won't be there. It's not a social media app

19 Vine
20 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!

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

Literally takes their age restrictions seriously and accurately.

21 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.

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

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.

There's no way I'm ever using that site without at least using a VPN. There are dangerous people in there...

23 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.

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.

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

25 Discord

It pretends to be a gaming chat site, but all you need to do is dig a little deeper. Soon you will find adult only chats, but there is no verification to make sure kids, tweens, and teens don't get there. Bots ruin the experience by filling your feed with nonsense.

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

Most of the community is unfriendly and even the name of this website speaks for itself.
