Issues raised by users
- There has been a lot of controversy around this largely meme sharing social media platform. As per the words of a user, worst part is that this platform has turned into a conservative racist community. Posts that spin around and encourage racism and fascism get promoted on a daily basis. This platform has turned out to be a hateful community with a political agenda. There has also been reports that Russians were trying to divide America through a ‘meme warfare’.
- Another important issue which users pointed out was the sexually explicit content which was largely circulated. Hidden browser gateways were found in chat section though which one could easily enter porn sites. This application was rated 17+ in Apple App Store. However, there wasn’t a way to monitor that users were 13+ (as per the requirements of the application) if the didn’t sign up.
However, after all the controversies they are now available in Apple Store and play store.
