Some of the many Apps being churned out and launched on a regular basis offer a direct or “secret” option for messaging. This means the conversation is private, not for public view and in some cases self-destructive. Once the message is sent, and then read, it is gone forever. Some apps offer options to save these messages, but most are live only for a single view. Here are four secret messaging apps parents need to know, because chances are your teens are using them daily.
Here are eight things the world learned about social media in 2017: 1) 2017 was the year people understood the consequences of algorithms. Before the 2016 election, the only people who obsessed over how social media feeds surfaced content were marketers and journalists.
We investigated a unique way in which adolescent peer influence occurs on social media. We developed a novel functional MRI (fMRI) paradigm to simulate Instagram, a popular social photo-sharing tool, and measured adolescents’ behavioral and neural responses to likes, a quantifiable form of social endorsement and potential source of peer influence. Adolescents underwent fMRI while viewing photos ostensibly submitted to Instagram. They were more likely to like photos depicted with many likes than photos with few likes; this finding showed the influence of virtual peer endorsement and held for both neutral photos and photos of risky behaviors (e.g., drinking, smoking). Viewing photos with many (compared with few) likes was associated with greater activity in neural regions implicated in reward processing, social cognition, imitation, and attention. Furthermore, when adolescents viewed risky photos (as opposed to neutral photos), activation in the cognitive-control network decreased. Thes
Snapchat is an image and video messaging app, developed by Stanford University students Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown in 2011. It allows users to capture and send so called ‘snaps’ that are only viewable for a set duration between 1 to 10 seconds after which they are automatically deleted or with no time limitation until they were closed by recipient. Snapchat users have an option to save specific snaps on a private storage area with “Memories” feature. Also the app users can add to snaps various Augmented Reality objects and web links.

Ever wondered how to make more connections on Snapchat? Well Yellow is the new app linked to Snapchat that allows you to do just that. If you have ever used Tinder before then it works in similar ways, if you have not, let me explain.
Yellow is an app where you can upload a selfie and post it with hopes that someone will like it and want to add you. When you open the app profiles will appear and you can swipe left if you are not interested or right when you find someone you like the look of. Once you and another user have both swiped right on each other's profiles, only then will the username be revealed and you can then add that person. Unlike Tinder it is not made for dating, simply finding new people to be friends with on the social network.
There is also no messenger option, you will have to wait to have added a person to communicate through Snapchat itself. Yellow really only serves to match you with people and in just two weeks the app has had over 3.5 million swipes. It seems
