This is the worst social media platform!!

The site is full of profiles looking to exchange money for sex, drugs and pornographic content. Many of the profiles are fake offshore scammers, looking to take advantage of other users. And the site administration does nothing to curb any of this activity. Only relying on site AI to make incorrect judgements on average users looking to have a normal, and legal experience on the platform.

The tag line alone serves as ample warning for parents to keep their kids away from this app: “Bored AF? (as f-ck) Watch Tagged Live!” Most importantly, pairing teens with nearby adults is a no-go. But that's only the beginning. Tagged - Chill, Chat & Go Live! suggests you fill your time by judging other people based only on their looks and watching people streaming events from their everyday lives. While the latter's entertainment value varies, both it and the former involve rating people, chatting with them, and sending them digital “gifts.” Livestreamers who gather lots of likes and followers earn real-world money, and the app encourages you to send your viewers and followers gifts to “make them feel special.” The app's search algorithm appears dysfunctional, since it returns similar results no matter what your profile settings are. And though the terms of service say lewd behavior and imagery is forbidden, there's plenty of half-naked people of both genders and plenty of substance-related and sexy talk going on in chat. Many users also report a lot of bots, spam, and technical issues. For kids and teens, there's no good reason to let your kids ever use it. With its ad-heavy presentation, questionable content, and numerous safety risks, this is one social media app to avoid.

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.
