Despite its emphasis on positive connections, this social networker doesn't really stand out in the crowd. Since it's only available on iOS, teens can't connect with all their friends. The focus on brightening someone's day with a positive comment is noble, but these brief messages are often shallow and serve only to feed the dopamine rush that can fuel tech addiction. The Community -- which gives teens the chance to vent, ask for love advice, or share weird thoughts -- is pretty cool but can get racy. While it's definitely a more positive approach to the anonymous app, it might benefit from more features and offscreen options to deepen the experience.

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.
