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.

Ex teenspot user

I used teenspot to help me face being gay. I totally agree with past users that there were plenty of nasty and vile individuals. But this is the internet... dont open your heart or peraonal information to anyone. The options were there to have a provate profile and set restrictions just like facebook. There was an option to report innapropriate behaviour. And you were not forced to put sexuality or your marital status in. I think everyone paints this site in auch a harsh light. Ita just like facebook is now. All teens used it and most didnt bother with the security optiona goven to them and talked to strangers and gave their details away. I met my boyfriend of now 3 years off the site. I moved down to where he lives and am extremely happy so all in all. If you are clied up with safety you would have had a reasonably pleasent experience.
