RAADR, Inc., a technology and software development company that monitors cyber-bullying and social media platforms with artificial intelligence announced today that based on a spot beta test that was completed late last week, the RAADR 2.0 Parental Monitoring App will now be able to monitor social media activity on the Instagram ,TikTok and Snapchat platforms. This capability significantly increases the utility of the RAADR Parental Monitoring App because of the popularity of Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat with young people. The company uses highly sophisticated machine learning convolutional neural networks to gather and analyze the data.
Jacob DiMartino, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RAADR, Inc. explained, “This announcement and last week’s breakthrough is truly a watershed moment for our company. It represents a critical moment for our technological capabilities. Last week, I was personally a field tester for the app and I used the app to monitor social media postings as it relates to my own 15 year old daughter. This is truly personal but I believe all parents need to know about this. Within 48 hours of photos being posted on Instagram and TikTok, I was able to retrieve photos and posts that were posted both on Instagram and TikTok that made me very uncomfortable. If it wasn’t for the RAADR 2.0 Parental Monitoring App, I would not be able to monitor this social media activity.”
Mr. DiMartino continued, “I am beyond 100% confident that all parents would want the RAADR 2.0 Parental Monitoring App to truly understand what is directly affecting their children on social media. It is within our company’s mission to now give the parents a tool to pierce these social media walls to protect their children. A small company from Arizona called RAADR with a market cap of about $3 million is at the precipice of unveiling this tool.”
Instagram is social media’s most popular photo and video sharing social media platform, In 2012, Instagram was acquired by Facebook for $1 billion. Instagram is extremely popular with the age groups that RAADR is trying to protect. Originally launched for IOS in October 2010, Instagram rapidly gained popularity, with one million registered users in two months, 10 million in a year, and 1.3 billion as of 2021.
TikTok, the fastest growing worldwide social media site and one of the fastest growing social media sites in the world is predominantly popular with children and young adults under 25. TikTok is now available in 150 countries and has been downloaded over 2 billion times. TikTok is a social media app used to create and share videos. Categorized by genres such as dance and comedy, TikTok users create short music-oriented videos.
Jacob DiMartino concluded by saying, “We are making significant but limited progress with Snapchat. If we are able to generate the same amount of coverage with Snapchat as we are with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram , TikTok our app will cover close to 100% of the social media vulnerability that affects children and young adults.”
