CAPZLES bills itself as a social networking and story-telling website, which is a pretty accurate description. Teens can combine photos, videos, text, and music into explanatory slideshows, and share them with friends or the general public through the site or social media. Users can classify their creation using pre-determined subjects like fashion, clubs and organizations, vacations and travel, animals and nature, and people.

The site doesn't do much screening; slideshows appear immediately after you post them. However, much of the content seems to be instructional. Users have posted Capzles on historical topics like the Russian Revolution and cultural subjects like folk art. There are also a number of unfinished or blank slideshows, which can make the search process frustrating. However, teens are more likely to find content that deals with classic celebs or cars than really racy stuff. Still, parents may want to check their teen's account settings and sign up for a daily site activity digest to ensure their kids aren't publicly posting slideshows or e-mailing unknown users through the site.

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.
