Is It Any Good?

A social media app allowing users to pay for the power to influence the everyday decisions of internet personalities sounds like a perfect recipe for disaster. And while NewNew -- a platform that puts "Decide what people should do." right in its description -- certainly has the potential to be a total train wreck, it's actually a cool concept for the right audience. That latter point is critical, though, as the idea of ponying up five bucks to have a say in what topping some internet celeb puts on their pizza certainly isn't for everyone. But for the passionate fan craving a fresh way to connect with a favorite influencer, NewNew actually offers something, well, new. Some of the app's featured influencers even put their next projects up to a vote, giving fans a voice in their creative process. While these types of connections -- and the costly in-app purchases that make them possible -- are aimed at a very specific audience, it is an appealingly unique experience for that niche crowd.

NewNew's more mainstream, free side, however, feels like a separate, often seedier app. Anyone can create -- and vote on -- polls without investing a penny. This content may include harmless, fun categories involving cute animals and fast food comparisons. Of course, for every poll that pits a puppy and kitten against each other, there's several more asking you to vote on the the attractiveness of a woman's backside. At best, NewNew can feel like the future of social media. At worst, though, it's barely clearing the low bar set by so many other apps.

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.
