YOLO is a Q&A app that allows users to receive and answer anonymous messages from your Snapchat followers, directly in the app. Your responses are immediately shareable into your Snap Story. Since its first release on the App Store, it has shot up to take the No.1 spot on the charts within seven days, especially rocks among teenager groups.
As it is built on top of Snapchat's Snap Kit platform, users can create accounts and log in to them with their existing Snapchat ID. Meanwhile, Snap Kit also allows third-party apps to integrate with Snap's own app.
Who made YOLO?
French start-up Popshow, Inc. created the app, and they use the Snap Kit platform for third-party developers. Creator Gregoire Henrion claims that the growth of YOLO is totally organic.
What are the main concerns about YOLO?
YOLO warns users not to send harassing messages, or their identities will be revealed. However, it is not like what they say. If a comment is reported for being improper, it simply disappears.
People also have raised concerns about privacy. YOLO's terms of service state that the app may "collect and store personal information," including your name, password, phone number, email address, and so on.
What should you do if your teens use the app?
YOLO is similar to the "Questions" sticker on Instagram, which will be relatively safe for teenager use. But parents should pay close attention to any app that feeds the teen brain's longing for peer approval.
Therefore, tell kids that their words have power, even if they are anonymous, and it's crucial to think about any possible consequences before they type. Encourage them to tell you if they are being bullied, online, or off.
