7 Apps Teenagers Shouldn't Download ...


Being a teen is great because it means new privileges, but not all privileges are good privileges! There are certain apps teenagers shouldn't download, either because they're dangerous, too mature, or simply a distraction from schoolwork! Although you should have fun using social media and enjoying the innovations of this generation, if you're a teen, make sure you don't download these apps.

1. Yik Yak

Yik Yak is really more of a college app, so it isn't one teenagers should be downloading anyway. However, when teens do download this app, they tend to use it for evil, not for good. Yik Yak is an app like twitter, only local and anonymous. You can see "yaks" from around the globe, but only comment on "yaks" within a 5-mile radius of your location. Many teenagers use Yik Yak to bully other students from their school, gossip, and simply talk about mature topics in a vulgar manner. This app is an unhealthy distraction from schoolwork as well as a medium for bullying—definitely not something you should be spending your time on!
