Voxer: Digital Walkie Talkie Used In Cyberbullying.

Voxer_app_H

Voxer can be a good app for anyone who is trying to exchange short voice messages with friends and family. What is particularly attractive about this app for an adult is that people can leave voice messages to multiple people at the same time with ease. They just have to tap the play button and bingo! people can get your messages. My issue with this app is that it is a playground for cyberbullying. Leaving hurtful messages is way too easy which makes this app inappropriate for kids.
