Random chat adults information dating violence
It’s like starting a big group chat with everyone around you that stops as soon as you walk away.This weekend I was exposed to the new phenomena where teens airdrop random pictures to each other when they’re waiting around for concerts to start. This is some of my haul from the Charli XCX show: pic.twitter.com/0Xnm Am IHOW — Signe Pierce (@sigggnasty) March 20, 2018Ryan says the moment she and her friends step into a model-UN competition or wait for a concert to start, they get the Air Drop going.“Sometimes I’ll do my country name from Model UN, or something related to the situation I’m in.I used to have it named Donald Trump, then I’d send crazy-liberal memes.” i have a confession to make: when i see a bunch of teens on public transit i turn on airdrop from everyone so i can get some high-quality content to share with my friends.Sam Bendinelli, a public-high-school teacher in New Jersey, told me that students sometimes send copies of tests, homework, or answers to quizzes via Air Drop during class or free periods.He and other teachers have begun to crack down on students having their phones out in order to thwart this sort of sharing.Bendinelli also said that students go out of their way not to include teachers.Adults are more likely to have earnest names on their i Phones, instead of jokes and memes, so some kids will take pains to avoid them.
Some kids bully one another by distributing compromising or unflattering photos of their classmates.“Another day another group of french teens trying to Air Drop me memes on the subway,” one woman tweeted.“In a crowd of teens and they keep trying to Air Drop me memes!!! One young Twitter user joked that she was going to a music festival last weekend “just to Air Drop.”Air Drop is a file-sharing feature on Apple devices that lets users send photos, videos, contacts, links, and more via a combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.“If I see a phone out now, it doesn’t matter what excuse you give me.
I’m voiding that test because [cheating] is too easy,” Bendinelli said.
As more teens get their own i Phones and a rising number of schools crack down on social media, Air Drop culture has gone mainstream—and more adults are getting caught in the crossfire.
