Introducing ‘Snap Maps’ – Understanding the risks and concerns relating to this app

The social media app Snapchat has introduced a new feature known as Snap Map. Sharing locations can be a risky thing to do as people you do not know may be able to make contact or see what you have posted. Snap Maps allows users to see where in the country their Snapchat contacts are, as well as seeing location based photos and videos.
