SnapKidz: Snapchat's New Kid-Friendly Feature Offers Little Comfort for Parents

Ever since the social app Snapchat debuted on the App Store two years ago, parents everywhere have been hyper aware of the downsides of their teens downloading and using the popular app.

Parents are concerned about enabling their children to receive (or send) sexually inappropriate photos or videos, photos that bully, or images taken in bad taste. If parents think they can routinely check their teen's phone to look for signs of these behaviors, Snapchat puts an end to that. When you take a photo in the app, it's not saved to the camera roll, and when you view a photo in Snapchat, it's available to the viewer for less than 10 seconds, and then it's gone forever.

Relationships are sensitive bonds that can be trickier to maintain than jumping rope while hula hooping on a bed of hot coals. Some couples work different hours, some have extra responsibilities like carting the kids around, which makes everyone just want to fall into bed at night. A few brave souls even defy the odds and the miles to stay together long distance. No matter the situation, it can be really easy for the fires of romance to die off quickly. Luckily, there are more than a few apps that will make you look at your iPhone as one of those spinning heart-shaped beds. So I guess the question is: Is that an iPhone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
