Diverse but mature collection of user-created comics.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Teens can practice reading, reading comprehension. If they use the website to create comics as well as read them, they can also practice storytelling, creativity.
Ease of Play
Basic prompts help new users get started, but the platform might overwhelm those who are new to the brand.
Violence & Scariness
Some comics depict zombies, suicide, kidnapping, torture, fighting, bloodshed, etc. Content guidelines are in place, but there's no moderation before comics are published.

While graphic content is against the guidelines, expect kissing, partial nudity (blurred as appropriate), mentions of sex, sexual activity without graphic imagery, coercion, risky behavior, etc. No moderation before comics are published.

Products & Purchases
Platform has banner ads. Users are invited to be "patrons" (via Patreon.com) of some artists. Coins can be purchased via in-app purchase that requires no additional parental approval. These are used to unlock some content, but are not necessary to enjoy other content.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Drinking, drugs, smoking may appear in comics but didn't appear during review as often as other types of mature content. Content guidelines are in place on the site/in the app, but there's no moderation before comics are published.

What’s It About?
WEBTOON - FIND YOURS is the companion app to the website of the same name. It functions as an e-reader for the large collection of user-generated serial comics that are uploaded to the site. Kids can browse various genres (romance, fantasy, horror, superhero, sports, sci-fi, thriller, comedy, historical, etc.), subscribe to favorites, and leave comments on each episode. Those who want to share their own comics will need to do so on the website. The app (and site) are Korean, and the content has an overwhelmingly anime flair with quite a lot of fantasy elements. There's no automated moderation to go along with the community guidelines; much of the moderation comes from community reporting.
Is It Any Good?
For mature fans of serial comics, anime, and graphic novels, this is an absolute feast of storytelling and illustration, but it's not for kids. As with any user-generated content, WEBTOON - Find Yours has a range of quality, but there are certainly stories to match a wide range of interests. The platform is easy to use and understand and there's a lot of community engagement, including users who help translate comics into other languages. With all that said, this is a platform with mature content intended for mature readers and it behaves accordingly. Moderation relies heavily on user reporting, and there seems to be no one watching to make sure users are being kind to authors or each other unless someone reports otherwise. It's highly recommended, just not for kids.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about the relationships depicted in comics in WEBTOON - Find Yours. What are behaviors you expect to see from friends and romantic partners in real life? What are behaviors that aren't acceptable for you? What can you do if a friend or romanic partner displays unacceptable behavior?
Talk about violence in the comics and media in general. How much is too much? Does it affect people's face-to-face interactions?
Discuss community moderation. What can you do if you see something that you think is inappropriate for the community? What do you do if you receive or see comments that are threatening or too personal? How can you make sure your contributions to the community are appropriate and within guidelines?

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.
