Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (1):

Many social networking sites try to safeguard kids under 13, with mixed results -- but, on most counts, Jabbersmack gets it right. Users who are over 13 can add friends using their Facebook accounts, but younger kids are required to text or print out a code for each friend they invite. They can play games, watch TV, or listen to tunes without getting parental approval. However, before kids under 13 post photos or other items, parents -- who also can register to monitor their kids' site activity -- need to verify and approve a child's account. And kids can't fool the system by entering their own email addresses during registration: A credit card is required to verify the account (the charge is less than $1 but proves an adult is giving the OK).

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.
