EAST PEORIA, Ill -- Tuesday night on News 25 Nightside we showed you the potential dangers children face on social media, more specifically SnapChat.

The picture sharing app advertises that all photos disappear within ten seconds of viewing but that's not always the case.

Users have the option to take a screen shot. That allows them to save the image and share it online.

Our story created an outcry from concerned parents.

News 25's Beau Ebenezer has been following the chatter on Facebook. Click the attached video to see some of the comments.
