A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

Upon registering, members are told that the site doesn't tolerate (and will delete accounts for) mean behavior, swearing, cheating, bullying, or generally bad behavior.

Violence & Scariness

A shooting section features weapons-based games, but most are fairly tame.

Sexy Stuff

Users can be banned for making a reference to sexual activities.

Language

The site is monitored for inappropriate behavior and language.

Consumerism

Kids can buy 100 Evercredits, the site's currency, for $1. Evercredits can also be earned other ways, such as by referring friends or winning games. Some games are preceded by fairly in-your-face ads.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Users can be banned for making a reference to drugs or alcohol.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Everloop was designed for 8- to 13-year-olds, but kids younger than 8 and up to 15 years old can join. Parents must approve kids' accounts before they can join groups, add friends, or post photos and videos.

Fun site for kids

Everloop is great for kids who feel too old for Club Penguin, but aren't quite old enough for Facebook. The content is fun, and kids can even prank each ot... Continue reading

won't appeal

Personally, I think that this is a bit to childish for tweens, it's not really like a networking site. You choose an avatar, a fake e-mail address and more... Continue reading

What's it about?

EVERLOOP offers plenty of fun activities--but safety is its real selling point. Parental controls allow you to track your child's site activity and proactively be involved with who your child friends. Kids will find plenty of fun features on the site, and an app released in 2012 allows them to access the site through their cell phone to post photos and other items on the go.

Is it any good?

After kids sign up for a free membership on EVERLOOP, they can connect with friends; upload videos; join groups based on songs, math, and other topics; play games and more. A new app, Everloop Goobit, also allows kids to post photos and comments to the site from their phone. Kids can also pull just-for-fun pranks, or Goobs--such as throwing a virtual pie--on friends on the site. In many ways, Everloop, which encourages kids to only friend kids they know in real life, offers a more secure experience than some other social networking sites. Kids can connect safely, while parents can manage the overall experience: It's a win-win situation.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about using a social networking site to make new friends. Everloop encourages you to connect online with friends you already have. Why would that be safer? Use our social networking tips to guide the discussion.

  • What potential dangers could occur when you meet strangers online? What kind of information should you never give out about yourself to someone you don't know? Talk to your kids about protecting their privacy online.

  • The site lets you post videos and pictures online. What's appropriate stuff to post? And what things might be too personal for everyone to see?
