The app, a social-media platform used to post anonymous messages, has exploded in popularity on college campuses. Administrators even use it to gauge student moods. But Torres and other friends blame cyberbullying, in part, for the suicide of Jacob Marberger, the Cheltenham Township teen whose disappearance this month sparked a multistate search, halted classes, and brought a national spotlight to the small college in Chestertown, Md. "We're all telling people to uninstall Yik Yak, because it's harmful," said Torres, a Washington College sophomore who was close friends with Marberger.
