A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

This site doesn't exactly promote healthy ways to increase one's self-esteem. Being proud of yourself, according to this site, includes "rubbing" your so-called accomplishments "in everyone else's faces." The "lie detector" and "insanity quotient" features let users vote on whether they think someone is lying about a brag or whether it's just "insane." Also, "witness statements" allow friends to attest to the reality of an alleged brag.

Violence

The site's Terms and Conditions warn against posting "excessive nudity, violence or offensive subject matter," but it doesn't promise close monitoring of future user posts.

Sex

Anything that is considered "adult material" should be filed by users under the "adult filter." The site's Terms and Conditions warn against posting "excessive nudity, violence or offensive subject matter," but it doesn't promise close monitoring of future user posts.

Language

None observed, but no promises here, either.

Consumerism

Google AdSense ads. Banner ads with photos for companies clearly targeting adults, like car insurance. There's also a store, where you can attach your brag to shirts, mugs, mouse pads, and more and buy them directly from the site.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

The site makes no promises to filter submissions. Anything that is considered "adult material" should be filed by users under the "adult filter" but there are no assurances that users will abide by that or that the site will monitor submissions closely.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site is based on user submissions of photos, videos, audio, and text about stuff they want to brag about. Much of the content is OK -- and even admirable -- but the site isn't closely monitored so inappropriate things could pop up.

What's it about?

BRAG THIS is a site for people to toot their own horn about everything from silly to serious accomplishments, from creating paper bag art to feeling proud about attending a political protest. Users can post brags via video, audio, photo, and text and others can comment on those brags. The social networking site limits members to 13+, and most current members are adults. The privacy controls don't always work, so be sure to check with your child that their full name, city, birthdate, and other identifying information isn't available to everyone by accident.

Is it any good?

Whether you accept this site as tongue-in-cheek, serious, or a combination of both, there's not yet enough submissions to see which direction it will go. There's potential for interesting posts as fun ways to let the world know about crazy, interesting, and fun adventures people are having. Or it could be reduced to mostly posts bragging about gross, meaningless or stupid content in the name of being the "greatest there ever was."

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why people would want to post their accomplishments on the Internet. Also, talk about social networking safety, like what is OK for your teen to post on social networking sites' profiles. Be sure to check with your teen to make sure their settings are what you both agreed upon if they do join this site, which has many options for how your profile and your submissions are viewed and by whom -- but not all of the options currently work as they should.
