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.

A year of Wishbone and I regret it (18 yr old perspective)

CSM is lying to you. I need to set some things straight here. 1. Wishbone is a social app, and you can post and message anybody as long as there is a mutual folowing 2. There are a TON of porn accounts 3. There are a TON of bullies 4. There are a TON of catfishes ~Details~ So I have had this app for a year and I regret it so much. I accumulated a following of about 15k people (Man, I was dumb) and I have had my fair share of everything. People say the worst thing about this app is comparing celebrities to each other but I had had about five cyberbullies cuss me out (f***k, s***t, b****h, the whole set). I have also had about ten seven year old girls tell me I was hot and attempted to send me pictures. Even worse, a bunch of people tried to take pictures of me that I posted and use it to get their own gaggle of fangirls. One time a crazy girl even found out my last name even though I never released it. PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD GET THIS APP, PLEASE. I REGRET IT, AND YOU WILL REGRET IT. The only nice thing I can think of about this app is that some kindred spirits will defend you through all of this should you choose to socialize with some accounts.
