Meetme

Threat Level – Very High

MeetMe (formerly MyYearbook) is a social networking service founded in 2005 and marketed by Insider Guides inc. This app provides the opportunity to interact and meet new people that are around you.

This app is free to download with over 40 million users. This is another gps enabled social media site. It uses your devices internal gps to locate other meet me users that are in close proximity to you

This app has been featured on several major media outlets as a fast rising social media app.

Inside the app there is also a feature called ask me. This is where the app developers encourage you to ask any question and to allow users to answer back. Yes complete strangers.

Another internal feature is a section of the app called Photoboard. This allows you to see what people around you are uploading (photo uploads)

You create a profile with the ability to personalize your meet me account to you.

In the app description, the app states their is sexual content, intensive mature themes, alcohol, drug use and references. Also mild profanity and crude humor

That last paragraph should just add to the fact your kids would be interacting with nearby strangers, and asking them questions should be enough to delete immediately and not let your children around it. I gave this app a very high threat level.

Meet me, white app, smiley face, smile
