Do your kids use Snapchat? If so, make sure you read this....
In the last #Snapchat update, a new feature was released called 'Snap Map' which allows users to share their location, viewable on a map with your friends or users can choose to stay off the grid using "Ghost Mode."
As you can see from the image attached, that you can see that I am currently at State Police General Headquarters in Framingham.
Why would you care about this? It should cause some concern for those of you that have children using Snapchat. I'd recommend talking to your children about the concerns with sharing their location with strangers. They can choose to share only with friends or with no one at all.
To adjust these settings, go to the camera screen, pinch the screen with two fingers, and it will load the map. You can then click the icon in the top right of the screen, where you will be given the options of turning on Ghost Mode or selecting who can see your location.
Please share with your adult friends, so they can speak to their children as well. And of course, "Like" my Facebook page and look for me on Snap at @DustinGFitch.
