Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Chatter.myYearbook is part of the popular social networking site myYearbook. It's a news feed along the lines of Facebook or Twitter that lets users post updates and photos and follow other users, including certain celebrities. Users can block profanity from their feed and limit who sees their posts. There's a lot of conversation about sex, and some of the posts are rude and offensive (like jokes about rape).

Is it any good?


Teen social site myYearbook is getting buzz for a new feature called Celebrity Chatter, which includes live updates from the likes of Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga, plus entertainment news from MTV and VH1. Users can also follow their friends or select a certain demographic to follow -- say, all female users ages 20-24 who live in their state. It's not that much of a departure from Twitter -- in fact, some of the celebs' feeds come directly from there -- and the design cribs heavily from Facebook. Chatter does have a few unique features that up the interactivity -- users can post photos to rate, play games, or ask questions for celebrities to answer. Unfortunately, a lot of that content is rude, crude, or just plain boring.

Online interaction: As with many social networking sites, threads sometimes degenerate into flame wars, and some users resort to racist and sexist comments.

Families can talk about...

  • Since this site bills itself as a way to meet new people -- rather than just connecting with friends -- families can review guidelines for protecting privacy online and talk about what personal information is OK to post and what's off limits.

Easy to use..

I've browsed the site, and most people upload them selves almost naked. You get perverted questions, but then again.. The site can't control this. It's fast, and can be fun while rating. Its easy to use, and is like Facebook. You can talk with your friends, it's like a yearbook..but on the internet.
