The Fine Line Between Prank and Privacy Invasion

After discovering her friend had secretly shared her location with himself on Snapchat, this 21-year-old woman is left feeling violated and unsure of how to react. While her mutual friend believes it was just a harmless joke, she can't shake the feeling that her privacy has been invaded. She's now ignoring her friend's calls and texts, as he desperately tries to apologize. With advice from a law student friend, she's considering her options, but worries about how it could affect her future grad school applications. 😕 What do you think - harmless prank or creepy invasion? 🤷‍♀️
