Snapchat is one of the most used image-sharing apps by teenagers. It allows users to share pictures, videos, and texts with their followers.
Besides, it is possible to send and receive messages, videos, and images from other users. Snapchat promotes short duration of the messages or content created. They usually last 10 seconds, and this encourages young people to use the service since they believe that they are sending small size content.
However, such use of Snapchat promotes sexting. If the app is harmless, messages, and images that are supposed to disappear after a few seconds can still be immortalized. Users who receive them can take screenshots or use a second phone to film and save the images.
