Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that So Stupid is a social networking and mircoblogging site where people talk about what they find stupid in media, politics, or pop culture. So Stupid allows people to make posts on any subject, but monitors the content that is posted and the language used. The service allows its users to post short paragraphs up to 350 characters. Posts appear within a few minutes after they are created, and the poster decides whether other users can comment on his or her posts. Users can vote on whether they agree or disagree with other users' comments.
Is it any good?
So Stupid is a fun site that encourages freedom of speech. The world is filled with ridiculousness involving pop culture and politics, and complaining is not often encouraged; however, sometimes people just need to rant. So Stupid allows the opportunity to unleash without using hateful or harmful language. Also, most of the posts are politically charged, encouraging discussion on important issues.
