askfm: Don’t Let Your Daughter Use This One For A While.

askfm

I see the value of asking questions anonymously sometimes as an adult. Timid adults may have a more difficult time asking uncomfortable questions to others face-to-face which makes this app good in this area. That’s the good thing about this app. My issue with this app relates to how children are going to use it. This app can be particularly dangerous to teenagers because of cyberbullying and suicide talk and share. askfm has been linked to suicide. My daughter won’t be using this one until she is much older, that’s for sure. I think that yours shouldn’t use this one, either. My two cents.
