But now we have various other forms of communication, including texting apps which send those texts via the user’s Internet data plan.
Whats App is the most well known of the lot with approximately 450 million users (according to its owner, Facebook).
There is never a perfect solution to any problem, but in the case of Kik, there are a few things you can do, which can, at the very least, minimize or stop the chances of anything happening.
Therefore, as well as smartphones, you can also install Kik on i Pod Touch As soon as someone (say a paedophile, or a generally unpleasant individual) has someone’s Kik username, they can start messaging them right away.
And this is the open-door invitation f0r every pervert and paedophile in the entire world to start sending creepy “do you want to come and see my puppies? For the love of all that is Holy, do NOT put your hard-to-guess username on these sites.
This also applies to guys hoping that young girls will get in touch. The same applies to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, your website, and any other form of online platform.
Others are trying to elbow their way into the increasingly crowded space, one of which is Kik.
Kik is a free texting app, with a user-base of around 50 million (so really small, compared to Whats App).
