Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2013 -- When Twitter acquired the Vine video sharing app in the fall of 2012, it was greeted with a lot of controversy pertaining to its safety and usability among kids. Parents are increasingly concerned that the app, like any other social media platform, could lead to online security problems such as identity theft and cyberbullying.
The team at MamaBear Family Safety App asked tech enthusiast and mobile device safety educator Allie Cooper to guest blog about the ins and outs of Vine and offer tips to ensure children’s Vine usage is safe and secure.
"Just when you think you know what the popular apps are with kids, something new pops up that grabs hold of their attention," said MamaBear president Robyn Spoto, a bona fide MamaBear with two curious, active boys of her own. "With Vine being such a popular, powerful app for youth, we thought we'd help parents stay in the know by addressing the app and how kids are using it."
