Snapchat Locator A Good Or Bad Thing?
So a new feature was introduced by Snapchat a few weeks ago which allows you to locate all your friends on a map and see exactly where they are at any given time! If users have their location option selected you can see where they are all the time!
Is this a good thing or bad thing? I see both sides but in my opinion it could have more of a danger than and advantage.
Snapchat is primarily used by younger social media users. They have a huge teenager fan base that could be real dangerous for our youth especially with internet predators all of the web and social media.
According to Statista.com 23% of users are 13-17 years old while 37% are 18-24 years old.
I mean at any one given time a predator can locate your child if their location option is set on in the app. That's dangerous huh?
On the flip side, parents can use this as a tool to keep tabs on their teenagers and children at all times.
As a user of Snapchat myself, I think it's a fun way to connect with listeners and friends but I use it in a strictly social platform. I don't want people however knowing my location all the time.
SO here is the question! Snapchat locator good or bad? Weigh in now on our Facebook page.
