Twitter and Snapchat Can Transmit The iPhone Text Crash Bug

iPhone1

(PCM) It now seems that even popular social media platforms such as Snapchat and Twitter are not immune for catch the iPhone text crash bug that has been circulating and infecting the iPhone messenger app for the last week or so.

A string of characters that were written in Chinese, Marathi and Arabic were sent to iPhone via text message and began crashing the messenger app on phones all across the globe. Apple released a temporary fix that would allow users to get their messenger app back up and running, as well as, remove the infected message, however there has been no software update released to keep the phone from crashing if a user were to receive the text message once again.

Now, according to several sources, the text crash message is equally as damaging when sent to the iPhone via social media platforms such as Twitter or Snapchat. If the iPhone user disables notifications from these apps than the phone will be protected from crashing, however both the Twitter and Snapchat apps will both crash if the user receives the malicious text message.

Apple says that they are hard at work on an update to protect their devices, but for the meantime users should be aware of any suspicious messages and activity on their phones.

Florida School District Reveals Plans To Monitor Student’s Social Media Accounts

Snaptrends

(PCM) In an effort to put an end to cyber-bullying, campus suicide and crime, the Orange County school district in Florida has revealed plans to begin monitoring student’s postings on various social media networks.

The school district has purchased new software for the price of about $14,000 per year, that will analyze social media postings made from their campuses. The program will allow the school district to search postings made to both Facebook and Twitter for keywords that might indicate problems.

Of course there has been some backlash and debate over the school districts ethics using the new software as many cite privacy concerns, but the school district stands behind their decision and claims that protecting their students is the first and only priority.

All messages being searched are said to be “open-source information” and publicly available to anyone who may have the right tools to complete a proper search. In fact, the program, called Snaptrends, has already led school officials being able to help one student who was talking about self harm on social media. The school district was able to contact the authorities and help the student and his family receive the medical help he required.

The school district hopes that the new software will help parents discuss with their children the proper way to use social media over the summer, as the program is set to fully roll out in time for the 2015-2016 school year.

Spooky Charlie Charlie Challenge Takes Social Media By Storm

Charlie-Charlie-challenge

(PCM) The latest internet craze has teens attempting to summon a Mexican demon named Charlie by partaking the “Charlie, Charlie Challenge” using two pencils and some notebook paper. Using the hash tag #CharlieCharlieChallenge, teens are posting videos of their attempt at the game all over social media. 

To attempt to summon the demon, you place two pencils in the form of a cross on a sheet of paper, with 
“yes” and “no” written in four boxes. Then after asking “Charlie” a question, you await his response in the form of the pencil moving to either the “yes” or the “no” box on the paper. It is kind of like a simplified taken on the famous Ouija Board. 

According to many sources the game actually has absolutely nothing to do with Mexican folklore, as experts say that most Mexican “so-called” demons are American inventions. Either way, teens and superstitious types are getting incredibly freaked out by the game. 

 

Obviously, once the questions “Charlie, Charlie are you there?” and “Charlie, Charlie, do you want to play?” are asked, the pencil is surely going to move just based on the way that it is balanced, but that thought is not enough to keep teens from running screaming from the room. Part of this urban legend also says that if you stop playing before Charlie is ready than it can lead to hauntings and other other unpleasant happenings.  

The simplified #CharlieCharlieChallenge also appeared to be a take on the Mexican game “Six Pencils” which may be where the folklore aspect got a bit warped.
