Snapchat update issues

 

There is a new feature in which any photos/videos you take can be made public on a map for ANYONE to see including people who are not your friends. 

Students will need to turn their app to 'ghost mode' so that strangers cannot see their pictures.
It seems the update has not been clear on how their pictures will be used but there are concerns that it can be as accurate as showing the stranger the location of the house as well as the pictures. 
The link below outlines more detail about the update and how to change the settings.
