Examine their claims

My main concern is the publishing of videos to the Youtube site. It isn't hard to connect the video to the child's account on Kidzvuz and so someone coming across the video on Youtube can find that child's id at Kidzvus. There's information aggregation possibilities I'm not sure Kidzvuz are keeping an eye on. One video I watched of a kid playing a game revealed their game identity - from this kind of revelation, a viewer can put together a composite profile of a child from different platforms. The Youtube question again - I tried out their claim that comments are moderated. They are not. My comments on the videos on youtube went through a split second after I hit post. Kidzvuz replied that it was a bug that they fixed after I identified this problem. If I were a parent, I wouldn't rule out this site but I'd test and try out rather than trust their claims. Look at the other videos, see if there's stuff that should have been caught out, be mindful that kids inadvertently reveal stuff about themselves that can be put together with revelations on other sites and platforms.

Is It Any Good?

This straightforward site gives kids a fun way to sound off about movies, TV shows, games, and more. Uploading a video on KIDZVUZ is easy, but kids should be aware that once they submit a video review, it becomes the site's property -- which means that they need to be extra sure they're comfortable with what they've recorded. On the upside, kids can feel free to express themselves without worrying about rude comments, since site moderators must approve each comment and video before it's posted.

Online interaction: Kids can interact by making comments on other reviewers' videos. Because the site is moderated, there are no rude or inappropriate exchanges.

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.
