Taking a picture, sending it to someone else and thinking it will disappear after a few seconds is the idea of Snapchat, but sophomores at a high school in Massachusetts are learning that’s not necessarily the case.
The principal of Weston High School had to have a meeting with the sophomore boys explaining a Snapchat account used compromising photos of them.I
It is unknown if the person who created the account is a student, male or female, or an adult.
It is also not known if any girls were targeted.
"I think that we think we’re smarter than we really are. I think they’re like oh, it’s Snapchat, it will disappear in a few seconds and no one will ever know. But in reality, it’s there, it’s on the internet," Diana Kirch, a 15-year-old student at Weston High, said.
The incident has been reported to the police and students have all been given reminders on the potential dangers of social media and policies.
