This social networker is most engaging and exciting if it's a place where all your friends are already gathered; without a lot of friends, it's a little dull. That's not especially easy to engineer, as the app lets you search your device's address book for names of current users, but (at the time of this review) you can't add a contact manually, and you can't view the profiles of people who aren't already your friends. This makes this less of a public browsing experience than other social networks such as Facebook and Instagram and more of a place to interact with your actual friends rather than view content posted by brands or celebrities. It's helpful that you can quickly customize who'll see your posts ("friends" versus "friends of "friends"), but the best part is definitely its magic words, as no other platform offers this exact type of experience. Overall, it's a great concept and a cool, flexible way to share some elements of your day with a limited audience of your friends; it'll be interesting to see if it can continue to distinguish itself -- and stay popular.

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.
