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.

Not for kids or teens!

This app claims to be "The Safest Place on the Internet" and that you have "Complete absence of identity." It enables users to publish short messages superimposed over photographs or other images. Users are encouraged to disclose intimate details about their private and personal lives. Whisper claims that it does not store personally identifiable information. Even if you disable the geolocation, they can still determine your city, state and country. One of the options is to add your school, find a group or create a group. There is also a "Nearby" section where you can see posts from people who are close. Keep you child/teen safe and don't let them use this app. Children and Teens are not mature enough to use it. There are so many breaches these days, I don't think anything is really anonymous. This app has no socially redeeming value.
