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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lino is a pretty basic but helpful organizational tool that lets teens go sticky-note crazy without wasting any paper. It's a virtual sticky-note system that's free for the basic version, but users can upgrade to a premium version as well. It's not the most exciting tool in the world, but if your kid needs an online organizational system that's easy to use, pretty safe, and won't break the bank, they could give this a try.

What’s It About?
LINO is a Web-based sticky-note platform that lets users add virtual sticky notes to a virtual bulletin board or "canvas." Each note can contain simple text, or you can add photos. Canvases can be public or made private, and you can invite others to join and contribute content as well. You also can download a bookmarklet tool to make it easier to grab content from anywhere on the Web, or you can view and search through public canvases to find interesting content. Kids can create canvases for fun stuff, too; a board filled with Minecraft tips or My Little Pony photos can be shared with friends, and they can contribute as well. An upgrade to Lino Premium offers more storage and makes use an ad-free experience.
Is It Any Good?
There are about a zillion of these virtual sticky-note sites out there right now, so Lino has a lot of competition. How does it stack up? Right about in the middle. Lino does what it claims to do, and its service is tidy and can be very helpful. It's reasonably customizable, and the platform is intuitive. Lino is based in Japan, and there's a little bit of a language barrier in the site's textual content, but instruction is still clear and highly detailed. Why use Lino? The free version offers enough storage for casual users, and its colorful backgrounds and emoji-like icons will appeal to kids.
