NOT FOR KIDS
My stepdaughter (age 11) was at her mom's neighbor's house playing with her 9 year old friend, whose parents don't monitor or watch over her. This young girl is allowed to download anything she wants, even age-restricted apps. The girls were watching live.ly when a man logged on, showed his privates (face covered) and began masturbating. My stepdaughter took a screenshot of the screen name and the exposed privates (but it was blurry) and told her friend to log off immediately. For several minutes afterwards, this man called her friend repeatedly.
Sadly, the friend begged my stepdaughter not to tell anyone. Luckily, my stepdaughter told her mom and her dad right away. My stepdaughter's mom told her friend's mom right away but the mom was not only not concerned but got mad at my stepdaughter for tattling.
My husband called live.ly, and the local police to report the incident but none are concerned about the victimizing of young girls! I told my stepdaughter she may need to sever her friendship with her friend if the parents aren't concerned about protecting her.
I understand there are age restrictions, but nothing is enforced and children can easily get access. If something traumatic is seen by young children, live.ly does not care.
