Snapchat And The World Today

Snapchat is one of the fastest growing social media sites of 2013. But the question and the growing concern is, is it used only for porn or growing to be used for porn. It has become very popular yet it has been used for porn. According to the NPR article posted about Snapchat said, that boys have been sending their friends pictures of some very inappropriate things. Things that would be considered pornography. This poses a big question, if a very popular form of social media is being used for pornography for certain people, how do you stop it. Of course many people could say that the best way to get rid of the problem is to just make the app as a whole go away, but that wouldn’t do anything. For example, there have been reported cases of under-aged men and women  sending risque photos to one another and have gotten caught and have been registered as sex offenders as a result of sending the photos. Many people want the creators and the CEO’s of the company to do something, but they really can’t do anything because it violates your freedom of speech and a large number of people would get mad because there were people documenting their social media. How do we solve this problem? We solve this by documenting what children post on social media and by not letting children have smart phones until they are mature. Also by teaching children not to send or post nude photos.
