Forget about the Tinder for teens — what about the actual Tinder?While the dating app, which utilizes swiping left or right to match people up, once flirted with a 13-to-17-year-old section, Tinder is now supposed to be strictly for adults 18 and up.(Even if users are careful on Yubo, they might not realize how much they've shared on Snapchat and Instagram.)The app also allows livestreaming that anyone, not just people you've "swiped right" on, can watch and comment on.While the app uses an algorithm that's supposed to shut down any livestream containing nudity, the very first livestream I clicked on had a user taking bong hits, and the next was mostly commenters requesting that the livestreamers show parts of their bodies.
(The closest I saw was about 5 miles away.) Users looking for a similar chat flash on the screen for about 4 seconds, and you can accept or reject them.
The user's age, gender and location are shown, but there's really no way to know if that's a teen or an adult.
If you accept a chat with someone, the video chat starts.
Available for i OS (rated 12 ) and Android (rated T for Teen), although some features are limited on Android.
An app that grants users anonymity, Monkey sets up 15-second videos with strangers.
And there are very real dangers for children, such as a recent and very disturbing Whats App suicide challenge. But apps that communicate with other people can make it harder to tell where the dangers lie.
