A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this site bills itself as a "safe online social-networking environment for girls" -- and follows through on the promise. True, there are no age limits to join the Jitter Fingers communities. However, since the site's purpose is to create invitation-only groups with eight or less friends, there's little to no chance kids will come into contact with outsiders.

What's it about?
In the beta version of JITTERFINGERS.COM, users can send text messages through the site to their friends' phones, post (moderated) thoughts about TV shows, music, and fashion, or chat in a private room with other members of their network who are online. A scrapbook section lets girls post photos, or they can alert friends to upcoming events. And of course, because this site is for tweens and up, there are girly touches everywhere, like the Cute Band Alert posting area. The site also offers some light historical value in sections like Year in Entertainment, which showcases hip happenings that took place the year a member was born.
Is it any good?
JITTERFINGERS.COM was created to let girls design their own online hangout by inviting eight friends to their private network. A scrapbook section lets girls post photos, or they can alert friends to upcoming events. And of course, because this site is for tweens and up, there are girly touches everywhere, like the Cute Band Alert posting area.
However, there's more than just cutesy content. The site also features some educational items, ranging from DIY craft instructions on how to make your own lip gloss to info on a philanthropic cause. The site also features some retail-based material, including plugs for items sold on Delight.com.
Online interaction: What happens within private clubs is invisible to others, so we can only guess that they are friendly and positive. But the screened comments that appear in the public areas are supportive.
