Is It Any Good?

Bystander Revolution has a noble objective: offer kids who are being bullied -- or who are witnessing kids being bullied -- emotional support and advice on turning the situation around. The site offers a pretty safe experience; kids can't interact or post comments about the clips from celebrities and teens.

In 2016, Bystander Revolution also incorporated more diverse content instead of only video -- including written tips on preventing and dealing with bullying -- which helps convey the site's message and makes the overall experience more engaging. Bystander Revolution deserves some kudos for its work; kids who spend even a little time on the site are likely to walk away feeing empowered and supported -- which is a really good thing.

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.
