Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (8 ):

As on most social networking sites, questionable content does pop up. The little hi5 "give 'em five" icons all over the place let users post the icons to each others' sites to "describe how you feel about your friend" -- with an option to delete if your "friend" doesn't feel very good about you. Don't miss the site's safety sections for teens and parents, and consider recommending to your teen that he or she use the privacy settings to control who can see their page. Otherwise it's global, quite literally.

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.
