You may have heard of Snapchat. Users can only view their snaps once before they disappear. Millions of teens use Snapchat every day. In fact, along with Instagram, it is one of the leading social media platforms among adolescents , according to a national survey from the University of Chicago. And more recent research has shown that teens use Snapchat mainly between their closest friends. You can superimpose bunny ears or a cat nose on your face—and make it animated. Indeed, many teens do use Snapchat just to exchange silly selfies or share lighthearted moments.
In fact, some say the founders of the app initially created it for sexting. For the same reason, cyberbullies feel comfortable provoking their victims on Snapchat. After all, the incriminating evidence will disappear in a few seconds. Intimate photos, in particular, can be used in the future for manipulation and blackmail. Anything teens put out on social media can be shared one day with the entire world.
Even things they put on Snapchat. Through Discover, teens can view Snaps from media outlets, promotional companies, and major influencers. Such content may not always be family-friendly. In fact, Collin Kartchner, founder of the SavetheKids movement, has compiled a list of Snaps featured in Discover that glorify porn, sex, suicide, drugs, and other inappropriate topics. Probably talk to the manager, demand a refund, make some phone calls?
One of the most problematic features of Snapchat, though, is its ability to get teens addicted to the app through Snapstreaks. You get a Snapchat streak by sending Snaps to a particular contact every day for more than three consecutive days. The longer your streak, the more you want to keep it up. And the more pressure there is not to lose it. Streaks can go on for weeks, months and yes, even years. Even if it means logging into Snapchat every single day for days—and counting. The stress, time, and energy such an activity requires can obviously become unhealthy. Smartphone addiction can, at times, go hand-in-hand with certain mental health issues.
