Chaotic social network for bros, by bros; not for kids.

Is It Any Good?

With so few features, there's not much to recommend this social network, and its overall vibe of boys behaving badly makes it even less appealing. Some posts are pretty benign, with users sharing photos of their friends who they missed during the coronavirus quarantine. But many more are downright vile, with users sharing racist, sexist, and homophobic words and images and even soliciting fist bumps to bully other users off the platform. There are no community guidelines, privacy policy, or terms of use, and though it's possible to report a post, it's not clear what impact that will have.

The developers get one thing right: This platform isn't like VSCO at all. It doesn't have nearly as many features as that photo-sharing and photo-editing app, and it doesn't work nearly as well. VSBRO is much more like other social media apps (think Peach and Yo) that briefly went viral for their own gimmicks. Hopefully this toxic boys' club meets the same fate.

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.
