The New Snapchat Maps Are Getting Everyone In Trouble

By Jaime Lutz

There is such a thing as too much technology.  There are some times when a lie is just the best answer and people are actually doing it with the best intentions.  We cannot have every one of our moves tracked as that would really take a lot of privacy and free will away from everyone.  As technology gets more and more sophisticated, we have to be sure that basic rights and privacies are taken care of or else it could mean some serious consequences for society.  

Last week, Snapchat unveiled a new feature called Snap Maps, in which Snapchat shows you your friends' location on a map with a cartoon lookalike "Actionmoji."

Though you can choose to opt out of sharing your location, the maps proved instantly controversial.
