Moms and dads need to be aware because ASKfm is not a radio/music app. Far from it. The purpose of the app is to allow users to ask anonymous questions. However, it has been called out in multiple reports about technology because it can promote cyberbullying. Users can send questions to friends or send an “open” question. This means that kids using the app could be communicating with strangers. Additionally, they could be viewing and/or receiving inappropriate questions and responses. Last but not least, there are many concerns about any app that is dubbed “anonymous” because that is likely never truly the case. However, that is a concept that kids don’t fully understand which leads to a false sense of security.
