Safe & Positive App For Girls

As the developer of this app, I wanted to comment on the post by @Momjoz. I am sorry you felt this app was too focused on boys and diet. Those are only 2 of our 40+ groups. While some girls are interested in boys and healthy eating, we understand that's not for everyone, which is why we've created so many different groups for any girl to find something in. Our app is all about girls helping each other and building a positive and safe environment for them online. Nothing on our app is posted without a REAL person reading through it first and screening. So yes, while "anyone" can make an account, nothing is posted that our moderators deem identifiable, bullying, or age inappropriate. Also, we are 100% COPPA complainant and do not collect data from our users. The only way your daughter would need to enter in a parent approved email address would be to win a prize, which again, no data is being collected for marketing purposes. We hope that you give the app another chance because it's truly a great resource for girls, and our goal is to provide a safe outlet for girls online.

Was considering

I was considering, but it's a chat room where anyone can make an account. I'm not pleased with the ultra-girly topics like diet and boys being marketed to 8 year olds and up. Kids need to talk and get support from friends and loved ones. Paul Brindak the developer has an amazing career in marketing and there is no way my daughter will not want to just talk to girls and not enter the compelling giveaways that require survey info. I am so adamant that I limit the data collection for my 10 year old. Not an "empowerment app" at all.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

There's a lot of talk on this social media app about boys, fashion, beauty, and celebrities, but it's bully-free and age-appropriate for the girls (who can be as young as 8, with parent approval). It appears that users keep the groups and "convos"/chats active, and there are lots of groups from which to choose -- for writers, celeb fans, animal lovers, diet and nutrition enthusiasts, and more. The most "risque" topics approved by moderators are questions such as "Is it bad to like bad boys?" and "I have a crush on a boy, what should I do?" Girls can find pen pals, see what topics are popular with users and consider turning them into articles for the Miss O and Friends website, and chat with friends. Tweens will likely love Girl2Girl Wall, while teens may find it skews too young for more mature interests and sensibilities. Elements that help kids build digital citizenship skills and mindfulness around using digital media would be great additions to help kids start using social media responsibly.

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.
