If you had to warn parents about nefarious sites, which would you include? I know this is an evolving list as sites rise and fall in popularity monthly, if not daily. I also realize every social networking tool can be used for positive and negative communications. Here’s what I’d share with parents today:

After School https://afterschoolapp.com
Ask.fm ttps://ask.fm
Backstabbr http://www.backstabbr.com
Houseparty https://joinhouse.party
Instagram http://instagram.com
Kik https://www.kik.com
Musical.ly https://musical.ly
Omegle https://www.omegle.com
Reddit https://www.reddit.com
Snapchat https://www.snapchat.com
Whisper https://whisper.sh
Yik Yak https://www.yikyak.com
YouTube http://youtube.com

I located this (1-year old) article from Common Sense Media which is great:
