The spy can quit at any time without ending the chat for the two other strangers.
If a user chooses to discuss a question instead, as in normal text mode, the user is paired with another stranger and can discuss the question the spy has asked up until the point the other stranger decides to disconnect and/or move on to another question.
Snapchat: This extremely popular app allows the user to send a picture, text, or video to another Snapchat user.
What makes this app special is that the sender can assign a lifespan to the message, up to 10 seconds. Problem: This app gives the sender the impression that they can send a “snap” without being concerned about the possible consequences of sending an inappropriate image or video. Images can be captured in a screen shot or by taking a picture with a second device.
Teens need to hear examples of what other teens have done and the consequences of their choices. One website gives a list of basic internet safety ideas that we could use in discussions with our teen.
As the spy, the user inputs any question for the two strangers to answer or discuss and is able to view the discussion as a third party, albeit without being able to contribute further to the conversation.Social media applications claim to be a convenient way for teens to keep in contact with their friends.
