I’m doing the review after seeing in the news they are being blamed for exploiting teens to sexual abuse and murder. How does an app get blamed for the actions of others. And why do people have to be held accountable for the actions of others. But then again people say they don’t like social media because people are all i their business. That’s bull. Those people post their business. Not social media. It’s just a platform. Don’t post your business then. But yet blame social media and these same people go to a brunch and talk about their personal business there anyways. It’s the people that use the apps or the platforms. That’s all they are is a platform. People meet on Facebook and all the other apps just as easy. And as long as there are evil in the world. They will continue to do so. Robbing people In a legal fashion such as law suits and closing down apps will not resolve that. But it will put money in someone’s pocket. They are not getting sued by people that care for and love people so much. Rediculous! The same as blaming guns for killing. And saying money is evil. And peopelr blaming the spoons because they are fat !
The Ban System
Let me start off by saying I am writing this not for my sake but for my girlfriends sake. I have been a member of kik for almost five years. I have always loved the app and enjoyed it a lot. My girlfriend, however, told me about the ban system set in place. I believe the perma ban system you have set up where if you prove there is wrong doing you can lose your account is acceptable. I do not, however, believe that the temporary ban system in place is fair. My girlfriend is an admin of a group chat and is worried because someone is falsely reporting them because their friend was removed from the group because they were rude to others. One of the admins has already received a temporary ban due to these false reports and quite frankly I don’t believe it is fair that they did. I believe a better system for temporary bans should be in place to prevent innocent people to be banned. Thank you for reading this and I really do enjoy the app but I strongly believe that to make the app even better the temporary ban system needs to be changed.
Good but with one problem
At first when I got kik for the first time, everything was okay. Chats were working, no crashes, and I even joined one group that shared the same interest as me. People were really nice I guess-one person welcomed me, others just ignored me minding their own business and that was fine by me. I even started opening up and talking to some members and it actually wasn't awful, but I did leave because one people weren't really talking much though there were like more than 40 people that joined and two there was lots of cursing. After that, I decided to not join any groups for a while. But a few days ago, I was like"Hey, why not join another group like the one I joined?" So I searched up groups with that one same interest as the first group and found many. Some were full but I eventually found some that still had some space left. But here's the thing: when I tried to join it, it just kept saying that there was a problem and to try again. I thought that it just happened to this group for some reason but it didn't. The message still kept popping up to other groups. And that is also why I've given this 4 stars. I really hope I can get told why this happens and if it's just a glitch, please fix it for I would really like to join another group and talk to others again.
