Parents' Guide to Mobile Phones

It seems just about everybody has a mobile phone now, including more than three-quarters of U.S. teens and a rapidly growing number of younger kids. For young people as well as adults, the technology has changed the way we work, play, communicate, learn, and socialize. Even the term “smartphone” is a bit of an understatement, with all that its hundreds of thousands of applications allow us to do—track flights, do homework, stay fit, take tutorials, avoid traffic, find recipes, read books, or share moments and play games together across vast distances.

Parent Guide to Snapchat

Snapchat, a media-sharing and chat app, is all about spontaneity. The text, photos and videos you send disappear seconds after they’re viewed – you get to decide how long your friends have to view them. What users love about that is they can share a moment that’s digital footprint-free – they don’t have to think about how their photos, videos or comments make them look to some unknown audience somewhere out in the future. Snapchat users feel like they don’t have to worry if they’re having a bad hair day. However, as we’ll show you below, there are ways to save what you share. So no one should develop a false sense of security.

Snapchat runs on Android phones and tablets and on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, which are sometimes used by young children.

 

Parent Guide to Ask.fm

Ask.fm is a social network on mobile devices and the Web that allows you to ask questions—to your friends or others who also use the service. People use Ask.fm to ask all sorts of things about life, religion, politics, books, pop culture, food, travel and much more. It’s a way to explore what others think on just about anything that might interest you. You can direct questions to specific people or friends, or to groups of people. The questions can be asked anonymously, or you can opt to associate your username with a question. Answers to questions are not anonymous and are identified by your username. Answers can be text or video, or text with a picture, or text with emojis (little pictures, like smiley faces) on mobile devices.
