    Thumbs up Using social app can be unsafe like this

    Gay men are using social apps more and more and that is resulting in STD epidemic like syphilis. We need to be careful.

    I have not read the story (yet) but this is very interesting. With the internet and now the GPS apps making it easier for guys to hook up, these things are bound to happen. What this show is not that these apps or the internet is responsible for the epidemic but how safety figures lower on the priority list of guys looking for sex. There is a definite need for more education for the guys.

    The app developers should add warnings about this. That will be very good.

    That is a good idea but isn't it unfair on the developers to expect them to provide them all the good features and in addition to expect them to educate people on basic safety precautions?
