Dangers of Social Media Apps
Last October, hackers got their hands on thousands of "deleted" Snapchat images that had been stored on third-party servers. While it wasn't exactly a breach of Snapchat, it's further proof that pictures don't always disappear.

Teens, as I'm sure you remember, will do almost anything for acceptance and attention. And the best way to get attention on social media is to do something edgy or crazy. Last year, in the most dramatic example yet, teens across the world took to setting themselves on fire.
I'm not kidding.

Tinder is all about meeting new romantic partners, which probably isn't something you want your teen doing with strangers. Actually, underage teens aren't even supposed to be using Tinder. The only way to get on the app is to have a Facebook account with a birth date that indicates the user is 18 years old or over. Of course, children can set any birthdate they wish with a simple keyboard entry. There is no age verification.

What do you know its another social media app whisper
. Whisper
Whisper, an app built specifically for spreading rumors and secrets, lets users post pictures and text anonymously. Apps like Whisper could potentially be a good outlet for teens, as anonymous confessions can help people unburden themselves. But Whisper shares the secrets based on geographic location, so the users nearest to your child are the ones more likely to see the secret. If your child reveals too much, it can put him or in a dangerous situation with friends or adversaries.

a social media app 9gag
9Gag is one of the most popular apps for distributing memes and pictures online Not only that, but some 9Gag users are cyberbullies and abuse other users online. Many of the people guilty of "swatting" — getting the police to raid an innocent person's house — come from 9Gag.

Vine dangers, another social media app!
Tinder dangers, witch would be another social media app!(
Dangers of the social media app snapchat
Messenger a social media app
Messenger – This is a private messenger app and is coveted by those under 18 for a number of reasons. The App allows kids to send private messages that their parents can’t see. There is very little you can do to verify the identity of someone on Kik.

Poof anther dangers app that kids have
Poof –The Poof App allows users to make Apps disappear on their phone with one touch. Kids can hide every app they don’t want you to see on their phone. All they have to do is open the App and select the ones they don’t want you to see. Very scary! The good news about this App is it is no longer available, which isn't uncommon for these types of Apps.

Omegle is also a dangerous app
Omegle – This App has been around since 2008, with video chat added in 2009. When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”. You don't have to register for the App. However, you can connect Omegle to your Facebook account to find chat partners with similar interests. When choosing this feature, an Omegle Facebook App will receive your Facebook “likes” and try to match you with a stranger with similar likes. This is not okay for children.

yikyak is another dangerous app.
Yik YakDanger: Yik Yak may not be as anonymous as claimed by its developers.

I funny is also a dangerous social media app kids can purchase on any device
• iFunny. This app lets users create comic strips using photos and captions, and post or send them to friends. Seemingly innocuous, this app (rated for ages 17 and over) can actually have a downside—your kid runs the risk of exposure to humor she's not ready for, and (perhaps more importantly) she can use the iFunny platform to bully (or be bullied by) fellow students. Once a comic strip is created, it can make its way to social networks, or it can be saved to phones and computers by other users, essentially spreading the info indiscriminately to whoever wants to keep it.
