Is It Any Good?

Though the idea of a local image board could be spun as community-building, anonymous posting with no moderation is more likely to destroy communities. When users first open Streetchat, they agree to the rules -- no pornography, no bullying -- along with reading a note that the content is not moderated but will be removed if enough people "downvote" it. That leaves plenty of time for enough people to see an image that could do some real damage. Content is tacky at best and hateful at worst, and the comments fall in the same categories. The one well-done feature is the meme creator, which includes dozens of meme images and a text editor that makes customizing memes easy. Really, if Streetchat could get rid of everything but the meme creator, it'd be a worthwhile, fun download.

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.
