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.

My thoughts about this website

In the past, I had dealt with bullying, and people think harming others is ok as well as threatning me and leaving me inapropriate questions especially getting disgusting question, but this time when I ask the team to remove the catfish account, they refuse all they care about is the person their inpersonating, like this one guy is litterly flirting with younger people. Be careful who you talk to on that site people lie and manipuate. Theres people who aren't who they are on the site, and they try to groom you.

Should be renamed bully fm

Don't let your kids on it as sadly they'll either be subjected to horrible questions or could get caught up in sending them. I never had a ask fm but some of the questions I've read that my friends got were vile they ranged from kill yourself to extremely sexual and vulgar questions . Keep your kids off ask fm as it's hardly a nice place when it's over run with bullying and linked to countless suicides.
