GroupMe

GroupMe is a messaging app that lets users send direct messages and group messages from mobile devices without message limits or fees. You can also use the app as a one-stop shop for interacting with your friends, from scheduling events to sending each other money. Its main claim to fame may be its emojis and open search for GIFs: There are tons, including lots that are available for in-app purchase. Unfortunately, some of these emojis feature more adult themes, such as cartoon liquor bottles and sexy characters. Searches for GIFs find scantily clad people, drug use, and violent images. Some users like GroupMe for its stealth potential, since on-screen notifications pop up without content, which is appealing to some kids. Since there's no way to delete past posts, there are also concerns about a user's control over content. Read the app's privacy policy to learn more about the types of information collected and shared.
