Playground for bullies

My daughter is being bullied in school and has had threatening messages on send it, option to pay to see who sent it £8.49 weekly what a complete rip off it only gives you a hint. I gave my permission for her to have it and we have had some fun with it but it gives bullies a free reign as it gives them anonymity

Very fun add-on for snapchat for my kids to use! Goofy games like This-or-that or just Q&A’s.

Is It Any Good?

This anonymous app could be amusing when used with trusted friends in a kind way, but it will likely spell trouble for younger teens when used with aquaintences or strangers. Anonymous Q&A and polling apps, like Yolo and LMK, have been incredibly popular with young social media users, but their reputation for inviting bullying has also led to their suspension. Anonymous lens game app sendit has stepped in to fill the void, offering a similar, albeit more creative, option for fans of the genre. Like its predecessors, sendit isn't a standalone platform, but a third-party app that works with Snapchat. It's incredibly simple to use, and can be quite fun to play with close friends. While players can simply pose questions to participants, it's far more entertaining to use the app's dozen or so games. The offerings are simple, question- and picture-based fair, like "Truth or Dare" and "Draw It," but they can lead to some amusing exchanges.

Of course, like any anonymous app, there's also the potential for bullying and other bad behavior. Inappropriate users can be blocked, but not before having the opportunity to be hurtful or mean. And some of sendit's games, like "Roast Me" and "Rate," practically invite unwanted responses and comments. When used among a close group of mature, online friends, sendit's fun selection of augmented reality games can provide some quick, harmless entertainment. That said, the risk of vulnerable users being exposed to harmful content makes it hard to recommend sendit to anyone below the age of 17.

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.
