One thought on “DTNS 3092 – Consumer Reports scratches the surface”
About your discussion of Sarahah. As the father of an 11 year old daughter about to enter middle school I am very concerned about cyber bullying. This app sounds like the perfect platform for that behavior. The recent events at Google show that this concern does exist in the workplace and if other platforms adopt the feature it will make the current situation for tweens & teens even worst. I try to keep tabs on her online activities but it’s a constant struggle.
