Random chat adults
Phones with Air Drop enabled can exchange files from up to 30 feet away, whether or not they’re in each other’s contact lists.Many adults use Air Drop to share files one-on-one, but teens have embraced mass image sharing via Air Drop for years.“There’s always going to be people you don’t know at events, parties, or at school ...You just want to see who else is around.” Plus, Zhong says, kids know that the people Air Dropping things back and forth are other teenagers whom they probably have something in common with.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.It’s like starting a big group chat with everyone around you that stops as soon as you walk away.
