Ask.fm is a reputable website that is entirely safe to use and not have to worry about your online safety being compromised. The website has been running for quite some time and is operated professionally, so there really is nothing for anyone to worry about when browsing or using ask.fm.
Ask.fm is not as policed as much by parents and teachers. Therefore, it easier for teenage cyber bullies to troll other kids to devastating effect. Part of the allure of the site is that it is not as well known as Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr. Parents need to learn more about this site.
