It drove me crazy asking myself, why they don’t “invent” safer social networks alternatives for kids instead of getting freaked out about how to keep them safe while using adults social networks?! Pardon my ignorance, it seems I have been mistaken! As Dr. Seuss said ” Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” Believe It Or Not, there are many safe social networks for kids that are built with safety in mind and age-appropriate fun. Finally I realized that Facebook and Instagram aren’t the only cool social networking sites on the Web that kids may use.
The good thing about those Social networks for kids that they are built on the balance of entertainment, expression, experience, education and engagement without endangering exposure. 13+ social networks aren’t for kids, but social networking can be. The best social networks for kids have all the features of traditional social communities (friending, chat, photos, profiles, comments, etc.) but also have more kid-friendly features like games, contests, art projects and more. Most importantly, kid-friendly social networks are monitored and include parental oversight to make sure everyone is safe.
