Kik messaging app scrutinized in wake of Va. teen’s murder


For all my educator friends out there, you may want to look at this article, then talk to your students about the dangers of social media.  It appears Kik, which is a semi anonymous social media messenger may have been involved in the meeting of a 13 year old Virginia girl and two college students who allegedly murdered her.

So read the article, and remind your students and your own kids to be careful when dealing with folks on the Internet.  You never know who you are dealing with, and the risks are great.
