It has come to our attention that students in the local area are using a social media app called “Yubo”, formerly known as “Yellow”.
The app uses your location and shows you who is nearby or shares similar interests with you, if both users show interest in one another – through swiping right – they are matched and can begin chatting through the app. This may lead to sharing other social media accounts like Instagram and WhatsApp.
There is no way of really knowing who is being communicated with (as with all social media), which poses obvious concerns for us as a school about our students. Whilst we are not aware of students using this at Newbridge, but we would just like to bring this to parents attention.
