MYPAD - FOR FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, AND TWITTER makes sorting through the vast amount of social-networking content a simple, and perhaps even fun, experience. It looks clean and polished, is fairly intuitive, and makes toggling among all the many sites a simple task.

It's crucial that teens regularly check their privacy settings to restrict personal information to friends only. However, because users cannot access all their privacy settings in the app, it can't be a self-contained replacement for Facebook or any other platform -- but it can make it easier to stay connected and check in with friends while they're on the go.

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.
