I have recently deleted snapchat, to be honest, I don’t really get it, I’m not one to take lots of photos, I never understood how it works properly anyway, and as for the photo effects I just don’t see the point, the only thing I liked about it was that you could draw and write things on photos, but I’m sure that’s an app for there somewhere (if anyone knows of one please let me know, I use an iPhone)
Anyway, my brother in laws girlfriend has 2 girls, 11 & 13, they both use snapchat, and apparently they were being groomed by an on line paedophile, of course the mother was outraged, posted a screenshot of the person and put it on Facebook, saying this scum needs to be named and shamed, and I get that, I really do, it was the day after that she informed the police,
But it was at the back of my head that day, and I can’t stop thinking, why did she let them have snap chat in the first place, and also the girls would of either had to add the bloke or accept his request, so why wasn’t the mother monitoring their friends, or did she even tell them about other people that may chat to the girls, or is just me being older, that I don’t add strangers to my chat apps? It was also the same on their instragram profile, this I have just started using so really don’t understand how that works yet.
Yes when I was their age, there was no internet, all we had was don’t talk to strangers, and I’m not a parent,
Just anything thing to confuse me!
