Recently, students have taken advantage of Snapchat’s campus story feature. This feature allows students to post stories that all of their classmates can see. Most students use this feature to be helpful and spread new school events, however, some students use it in order to post messages others think are unnecessary.

Former student Carter Otis does not attend AHS, but he still posts on the AHS 2027 story. Technically, anyone can post on the story as long as they have gone to the school.

“If you don’t go to the school, you should not post on it. It is literally for AHS students,” sophomore Dorian Ballway said.

Ballway is opposed to students who do not attend AHS posting to the AHS Snapchat class stories and how people post memes and do not use the story feature to post more informational stories.

“People actually need to use it for informational stuff, not stupid stuff like posting memes making fun of people,” Ballway said.

Several people agree with this idea and have spoken out about it by posting on the story themselves to try and settle everything down.

“There’s a lot of unwanted drama on there, especially from what I’ve seen from the freshman class,” senior Madison Birk said.

Junior Elijah Quiring, also agrees that there are several examples of drama and several inappropriate stories that are posted. He also dislikes that people posting can remain anonymous.

“They are very inappropriate and outrageously obscure,” Quiring said.

Counselor Harmony Davis thinks that social media itself is dangerous for students especially when they are unsupervised.

“The internet just creates this anonymity which makes it really easy for people in general,” Davis said. “Kids and adults do really dangerous or mean things.”
