Disruptions: Indiscreet Photos, Glimpsed Then Gone | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Today I learned that teens are using this texting service where texts and photos dissapear after 10 seconds or less so that nobody can track their ocmmunications.  It is potentially disturbing.

A free and increasingly popular iPhone app called Snapchat allows a person to take and send a picture and control how long it is visible by the person who receives it, up to 10 seconds. After that, the picture disappears and can't be seen again.
