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.

Not sure where they are going....

Weird concoction of fact checks on social media and timelines. Seldom fact checks anything of relevance any longer. Not high on my list of FC sites.

Excellent resource

I use Snopes all the time. I find them to be a very useful resource to check urban myths, fake news etc. They are also a good way of checking current and trending fake / real stories.
