Village Social: the best app to keep in touch with your friends and family!
As a grandmother of six whose entire family uses the Village Social app, I take great comfort in the knowledge that the kids are safe from the adverse affects of traditional social media. It is very reassuring to know that Village does not have ads, vanity metrics or any adult content. We have so much fun sending gifs to each other and I appreciate that only kid-friendly gifs are available!
During the past few months, my extended family and friends from across the country have become Village fans. Our favorite way to share pictures is via the Social Post- where you can select the length of time for your post (e.g. 1 hour to 1 month) and where you use your contact list to select exactly who will see these pictures. The Social Post is so easy and convenient to use that my sisters in the Midwest now have more pictures than they ever wanted of "Grandma Day". I love that the pictures disappear after a predetermined amount of time, so I am not contributing to my grandchildren's digital footprint.
In my opinion, the best features of Village Social are: it can be used on multiple devices such as the family computer or a kindle, it's free, it's very easy to use and it provides a safe online environment for children.
