Yik Yak and the Social Media Bullying Trend

Education Law Insights posted a great article yesterday titled: How Lessons Learned From “Yik Yak” Can Help You Address The Next Novel Social Media Bullying Trend.  You may have read about this social networking "app" that allows users to post comments that can be seen by others within a 5 to 10 mile range.  Because the users are anonymous, the app has been used recently to bully others without repercussion. The problem became so widespread that some schools have gone so far as to disable the app entirely.
