Slingshot - Defend Your Opinion
Wishbone is a seemingly harmless app where users upload two photos and then ask strangers and friends to answer a question, such as, "Which do you prefer?" You can find your friends on it by username and by seeing who follows them and who they follow (similar to Twitter). There are two problems with this app. First, there is no way to flag content as inappropriate, and so any user can upload inappropriate content such as pornography. Second, a child can compare photos of their friends, which is a form of bullying. There is no flagging system at all for reporting such bullying. You should do your best to keep all minors of this app.
Please see our guides to bullying and strong sexual content for more information on how to talk to your children about Wishbone.
