There is an app called “After School” trending in high schools across the country. The app allows users to connect to the school users go to and talk about other students while remaining anonymous. There are no restrictions to what someone can say, and no one can see who posted it.

 

This app is nothing but trouble, and can promote cyber bullying or other inappropriate things that can occur. This app is just disgusting and wrong. When students see something about them that can be rude, that person is not going to know who said that and will hurt their feelings, or could cause many more problems. 11th grade Trevor Hermon said “It promotes bullying”.

 

20% percent of teens who get cyber bullied think about suicide, and one in ten attempt it. 4,500 kids commit suicide each year, and suicide is the third highest cause of death on teenagers. 81% percent of teens say bullying online is easier to get away with.

 

This is the problem with this app. People may say that users can be positive about somebody or give them compliments, but then wouldn’t it be better if it was said to the person’s face so that they know who it is coming from? 90% of teens who say they witnessed online bullying also say they did nothing about it. If you ever witness online bullying on the app “After School” or any other social media then either report it to somebody or just say something to the person.
This app is not appropriate for school, and can ruin somebody’s life. You may or may not keep using this app or you may download it. Just remember you may be the one who gets bullied on this, so use at your own risk.
