YouNow: Live video streaming app

This is a live streaming app that kids use.  The goal is to obtain lots of views/viewers and grwo your fan base.  It is much like Instagram or Twitter in this regard.  The problem is that kids are not typically known for their smart decision making when it comes to trying to be popular so they may do things or share information they shouldn’t in order to gain popularity.  Literally, your child can post a video of them doing ANYTHING, so this can be a very creepy site.

Below are a few links to sites that discuss the dangers of this app.  One calls it a “Pedophile’s Dream Come true”.
