Snapchat, is the social media app which has been flagged by the NSPCC & the Humberside Police as being one of the main sources of online grooming incidents over the past 6 months in the region.
Snapchat is a photo sharing app for mobile phones and tablets. The app allows users to share images, videos and chat with friends. Users can share images and videos directly to specific friends, or through a ‘story’ shared with their entire friend list, which documents the last 24 hours. In a study, Snapchat was ranked the 4th most negative app in terms of having an impact on young people’s health and wellbeing, with children feeling that they can use the app Snapchat to “make you look pretty”.
This guide informs parents about the dangers associated with the social media platform and how they can reduce the associated risks, including sexting, snap map and snap streaks.
