Just to make you aware….Yik Yak has hit Salem, Indiana and is causing quite an uproar. Some students have had it for months, but lately it has taken a negative turn. Students are anonymous (although they can be traced with some effort). I am encouraging all students to delete this app from their phones. Please share this information with your friends (especially if they have teenagers/young adults). Scott Ratts (Salem Police Department) has said this is one of the worst apps out there. Yik Yak also has a high percentage of foreign men as members trying to “hook up” with young American teenagers (especially girls). As is the case with some social media, people pretend to be someone they are not. Our students do not need to be on this social networking site. If you have questions, concerns, or additional information, please let me know. Thanks.
