School threats as acts of terrorism?

In a recent news article, security expert Dick Sem equated school threats to terrorism: "If you define terrorism as trying to spread fear among as many people as possible, and so this is something that will be taken very seriously.”

With seven schools in southeastern Wisconsin experiencing threats since October, maintaining a regular school day free of interruptions and delays is  becoming increasingly difficult.

 Social Media Update

Snapchat has become less private and less safe for minors.

Snapchat announced privacy policy updates two weeks ago that reinforces the notion that nothing is private on social media.  According to the Cyber Safety Cop Blog, Snapchat is not safe for minors for two important reasons:
 
1) Snapchat does not keep a history of messages sent or received, making a parent's ability to review what their child is sending or receiving impossible.
2) Snapchat gives children a false sense of security. They believe the images/videos they send are covert and safe from being saved and shared. This is not the case. There are many ways to exploit Snapchat and save messages. Snapchat is popularly used to send nude and inappropriate images to other teens.
