Parents Beware: 'After School' App Allows Online Bullying

KINGSFORD, MICHIGAN PARENTS - A parent concerned shared this post on facebook that was posted online towards her daughter using a new app called 'After School', facebook quickly took action and removed it. They didn't remove any posts made that bullied her daughter, instead they removed this mothers plea for help.. I believe they removed it because it had her daughters name in it, so I edited it and posted it to my facebook page so parents would know what was going on.. There were no names listed, yet facebook again removed it!
 

This message was posted to a student in Kingsford, Michigan apparently by a student at the same school. This is totally unacceptable! I encourage parents to be vigilant and maintain close supervision on what their kids are doing online. This new app called 'After School' allows kids to post thoughts and feelings, but it also gives others the ability to bully others and even post threats online. PLEASE SHARE THIS!


CHECK YOUR KIDS MOBILE DEVICES FOR THIS 'AFTER SCHOOL' APP.. TALK TO THEM ABOUT ONLINE ACTIVITIES AND BE A PARENT, NOT A FRIEND!
