Is It Any Good?

There's nothing inherently wrong with Versagram; the app itself is simply a way to more colorfully express thoughts. But it has quickly become a popular workaround for kids whose parents restrict their social media usage. By sharing the messages they create through the Instagram app, they're able to share details of their lives (and sometimes much more than they should).

For older users, who are already on Facebook and Twitter, it's an alternative way to underscore an expression, but not one you're likely to regularly use.

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.
