Belmont said when she was giving a presentation to a bunch of young girls interested in STEM two weeks ago, she received a bizarre meme Air Dropped to her computer mid-talk. It’s not unheard of for kids to blast out nudes (of themselves or others) and porn.
Many adults use Air Drop to share files one-on-one, but teens have embraced mass image sharing via Air Drop for years.
Teens say that sending things out via Air Drop is superior to social media or text messaging because you don’t need to have a person’s username or phone number to share something.
It’s far less time-consuming than sending a text or a DM, and you don’t need to create a giant group chat to send things out en masse. Air Drop is like a roving ephemeral message board that anyone in the area can contribute to.
But Bendinelli said most of the images students drop to one another aren’t anything problematic. I would estimate 80 percent of Air Drops at school are memes and fun things to pass around.
It’s like a chat room where some people are anonymous, some have names attached,” he said.
