Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Disgusting content.

Only on the app 5 mins looking for essay research on artist sketchbooks before stumbling across barely veiled predatory content. Nobody asked for it, it was just brazenly posted for all to see. Concerned that this was so out of the gate I had to find if others encountered this on the app /creepyasterisks on reddit confirmed my worst fears. No good for kids, or adults for that matter, you have to be sick to want to hang around in that cesspit of an app. AVOID AT ALL COST. If kids are questioning their lgbt status and need peer support find another app that allows them to talk about these things safely.

Innocence Taken

This app is what every parent fears when it comes to your children being on the internet. Its full of pedophiles just waiting to take every and any positive thing within your child away. So that they feel they need to be on this app. I refuse to let these sick !*@#×&!&** take anything else from my daughter. Please don't let you children have anything to do with amino.
