Fun user-created polls and quizzes -- but ads run the show.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this pop culture site is part of the Nick.com universe. All user-generated content is reviewed before it's posted, so there's no hating, swearing, or other inappropriate conduct. But ads are everywhere, including ones for junk food and fast food.

What's it about?

A new addition to the Nick.com universe, UPICKDAILY.COM features polls, quizzes, and posts -- all created by users. From video games and the WWE to Twilight and Taylor Swift, entries cover the hottest topics in pop culture. Registered users can pick the posts they like best, increasing that content's popularity on the site (like on Digg.com). A video section includes celeb interviews, clips from Nick shows, and occasional oddities ... like a dramatic reading of a blog post about Lindsay Lohan.

Is it any good?

Pop culture experts looking to sound off about their faves will find a fun, friendly space at UPickDaily.com -- if they can withstand the onslaught of ads. Also, the quizzes are a bit strange -- you can see how other people answered, but not the correct answers. Users can go to the main Nick.com site to register and use other interactive features, but it's hard to navigate back to UPickDaily.com once you leave.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how ads can sometimes look like content. Did you click on any ads thinking they were things to do on the site? What quizzes, polls, or posts did you like best? Did you create any of your own?
