Great, only problem is it takes FOREVER for your post to be moderated.

Is it any good?

The true spirit of "girl power" is alive and kicking on iTwixie, a cheerfully designed site that lets tweens get a taste of social networking in a safe, positive space. The site offers appealing activities -- like exchanging friendship bracelets with other iTwixie girls -- as well as a well-rounded range of posts about  nature, sports, puzzles, and more. Members are super friendly and make creative contributions to the site -- including poetry, narrative videos, and recipes. Unlike many tween-targeted sites, iTwixie treats girls as smart, capable young people -- not fashion-crazed consumers. 

Online interaction: Users can create a profile, make friends, and post comments. All content is either pre-scripted or reviewed before it's published. Interactions are friendly and positive.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the site's pledge that includes guidelines about safety and behavior on social sites. If someone says something that you don't agree with, how would you express your opinion in a respectful way?

  • Families can talk about creating and posting videos online. What sites are safe for posting videos, and what kind of videos are OK to upload?
