Wait, What? Episode 15 – Apps & Teens vs. Privacy & Parents
After a prolonged absence due to holidays, vacations and two feet of snow in the Washington, D.C. area, the guys are back!!
The show starts out with the show recounting the story of two Virgina Tech college students (male and female) who were involved in the disappearance of a teenage girl. The guy discuss how the use of the app “Kik” was used by the perpetrators of this crime to ultimately lure the young girl to her death. This then leads to a discussion about mobile apps and the dangers that they pose to teens and young children and potentially adults as well.
Moving on deeper into the show, the discussion transitions into a discussion surrounding inappropriate photos and text messages sent via cell phone or other mobile devices.
