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.

Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers. Unlike Facebook, which requires members to sign up with their real names, people can also be anonymous on Ello and use different names. All the site asks for is an e-mail for registration. Thanks to the authors! ( William H. from http://ahealthgroup.net )

Ello is the anti-Facebook, and it has no problem stating that.

Ello is the anti-Facebook, and it has no problem stating that. The bare-bones, ad-free, so-minimalist-it-hurts social network was designed in response to the many controversial Facebook policies, especially the one that forces users to display their real names.
