  • The amount of photos online is two billion photos are uploaded online.
    An example of popular social media is Amino.
    The teens in this video appeared to be oblivious, despite being around fourteen to sixteen, which I find ridiculous. They must have been being paid to look dumb and oblivious to social medi problems.

    When you agree to terms and conditions, you’re basically signing a contract.

    The UK has made the terms and conditions shorter for kids to understand.

    The kids were surprised that the terms and conditions had to be made so long when it could’ve taken much less time to make it easier to understand.

    I use Amino and YouTube, both social media websites.

    My thoughts about social media have not shifted after the video, because I understand the risk I take and i have no problem with it. If I must fend for myself on the internet, I can do it myself.

    I think social media companies should make it easier for kids to understand the terms and conditions for their websites so they know what they’re up against in the sea of the internet.
    Meanwhile, I have a boat.

    conditions of Instagram? I fought they reacted poorly they should have already read the terms and conditions.

    6. What were the kids surprised to discover about the terms and
    conditions? They were surprised that anyone can access there personal information.

    7. Do you use social media? If so, which ones? I don’t use social media at all.

    Do you think social media companies should be doing more to help young people understand what they’re signing up to? If you do, how come?

  • It was about 2,000,000,000(2 billion) photos a day.
    There are Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube and Facebook to name a few.
    They were very surprised at what other people could do to there photos and info.
    When you agree to the terms and conditions, you’re basically sighing a contract.
    They made it shorter and easier to read for younger people.
    They were very surprised that people could steal other people’s photos and there info.
    I only have YouTube, pixel gun and Pictophile.
    I have never liked apps like Instagram and Snapchat so I probably won’t get the game.
    I think they need to do way more things because a lot of kids are being cyber bullied but the apps haven’t really done much to stop it.
