AMMAN —AlGhad— At the time Snapchat has been developing rapidly, and spreading among the youth, the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRC) has issued a privacy warning yesterday, Tuesday, against using the new Snap Map feature, which allows users to share their geographic locations in an interactive map.

The Commission called upon users to be cautious when using the new feature, due to possible privacy violations.

Around the world, there are no less than 150 million Snapchat users, with nearly one million of them here, in Jordan, out of whom 45 per cent are 18 to 24 years old.
