Parents’ Guide to Snapchat
‘Snapchat’ is a photo application that allows users to take photos, record video, annotate and then send to a another user. The sender can decide for how long the recipient can view the message (ranging from 1-10 seconds). After this time, the message will be permanently deleted. This however does not prevent the recipient from taking a screen grab of the message. Snapchat has become a very popular craze. A detailed guide to Snapchat can be found below including advice for parents.
