Putting some positivity into the social media world is a noble idea, but doing that with sensitivity and depth is challenging. You are Loved - Spread Kindness masters bringing self-awareness to feelings by having users rate their feelings daily and tracking that data in a graph. It'd be nice to add some depth to that with a journal option to jot down a few notes. Users can send (and receive) positive messages from strangers, too, which can be uplifting, but lacks depth. For those frustrated or anxious from bad news, the positive news feed is a great feature. Overall, this nice idea could use a little more depth and polish. Parents may want to talk to kids about being selective in the friends they add so that they are comfortable being vulnerable sharing their feelings. And without a privacy policy, it's impossible to know how data is stored and shared, so use with caution.

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.
