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.

Not as safe as they say

After looking at social networking apps for my child to interact outside of school with friends and an alternative to Instagram, I was guided to your sphere which states it has strict rules and that parents control the account.. I am still waiting for confirmation that my child has joined - not very strict is it? Also children have an option to keep pictures private , yet Instagram pictures are private on a private account, why are children given these options ? It has posts like Pinterest where children can comment on others post !! It's not safe! It's a gimmick for users

Kids Under 13 Not Allowed

I was excited to read about Yoursphere, thinking it was an app that my kids would be able to use safely, but when I tried to sign up my 12 year old daughter, I still received a message that the "terms of service prohibit (my daughter) from joining." There was a link that said "Get your kid id here!" However, the link just takes me to PRIVO, a company that offers services to make youth registration and parental consent easy for app developers.
