Is It Any Good?

Though it might be a fun social tool for college students and does contain posts from funny to bland, it also allows non-students to sign up and features sex, drugs, and drinking. It's a way for students to share what's going on in their lives with a large group of people, and students thinking of transferring or attending a college can get a vibe of the student body without traveling to the campus. However, the fact that anyone can join without age verification allows adults to create content and view posts from teens and young adults, though there's no messaging. Also, stereotypical college behavior dominates posts, with big bags of marijuana, glorified binge drinking, and casual sex. In terms of functionality, it's cumbersome to have to wait for each post to cycle through if you're ready to move on to the next one. Also, sometimes the text with the post is cut off and unreadable. Ultimately, it's a Snapchat/Vine combo for college kids with fewer features.

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.
