Mean teens plus ask.fm can be a recipe for extreme nastiness. Parents need to know that this seemingly addictive site is the popular, go to site of the moment for teens experimenting with the power afforded to them by anonymity. Let’s see what happens if we ask someone ‘why are you so fat?’ or ‘why do you think you so special? or we tell someone to ‘go die’ or ‘everyone hates you’ or as the pic shows much, much worse. There have been many sites before it, Qooh.me and Formspring.me to name two. This particular platform is based in Latvia. It is an App as well as a website. The best advice I can give parents is to make sure your teens are not on it. Take my word for it, no real good can come from it!
