Top Ten Safest Social Media Sites for Kids

The Top Ten
1 Instagram

There can be some inappropriate accounts/feed on Instagram but it is safe I think children 12 and should be able to use it and children 12 and under should have some adult supervision.

Instagram is good if you make a private account and you cannot see other accounts unless you follow them and they follow you. Other users cannot see your account.
AGE 11

Private accounts allow for you to choose who follows you and stops inappropriate people from viewing your profile.

It's got the private account feature and you get quick action if you report stuff. But the nude accounts though

2 Pinterest

It and Whatsapp are my top two picks. Also with Pinterest it's hard to kinda talk to anyone or give out personal info so... yeah it's safe. Plus it's a great place to find recipes for cooking stuff or little quizzes on random stuff. I've been going on there a lot lately and it really does help.

Pinterest is number one because you just post things you buy, make and etc.

AGE 12

Not really what most kids want but really safe

It is not as popular as insta but nice

3 Snapchat Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc Snapchat was made in September 2011

Make sure to go on private so if someone wants to ad u. U have to give them permission and if u don't wanna add them then just ignore bye only add people u know

It’s super safe, no strangers can add you unless they have your exact username, it can’t even be one character off. Snapchat also tells you if the video or picture you sent was screenshot or recorded. No one can interact with you or see any of your stuff until you add them back.

SnapChat because you can have private accounts, like someone else said and kids can use funny filters and if parents are watching if it's there account, they can watch their children use funny filters!

I guess. I actually don't have any social media but u know whatever

4 YouTube YouTube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion.

YouTube channel coming soon I'm pumped and you should too.
But seriously is this even social media?

They should have restricted mode on, or go on YouTube kids.

I would much rather look at youtube than get bored scrolling through pics on intas

There is restrictions and youtube kids

5 WhatsApp

Really safe, can't look at people unless you have there contact.

Very safe. Just text basically, and no one can look what u do unless u know they have your exact contact.

Really safe, basically text

Only your contacts

6 TikTok

I had porn sent to me on chat in a new 'from people you don't know' section. I tried to block and report the person, but Tiktok did nothing. The app is full of harmful messages, with occasional worthwhile content mixed in. I had it for a while before it got really popular, then deleted it after the porn incident, and I recommend you do the same. I've have a few other unpleasant experience with Tiktok. It's started unwanted drama between friends of mine and other things that I would have been better off without. I wouldn't suggest children under the age of 14 to have the app.

Even tho I don't have it, I love it it's so funny. Tho recently, there was a suicide video and all the schools sent a warning to delete the app.

its cool and all but f addison rae and bryce they tryna call out my boi yachty they got a problem with him they got a problem with me
by the way I actually know and am friends with him

I have't seen any porn, pro eating disorders or anything like that.

7 Roblox

I'm the god at this game
say your user if you want to friend but
yea THIS SHOULD BE HIGHER but I understand why not

Is it really social media, though? Also, there are restrictions that can be applied.

Kids play games with kids there cound'nt possibly be anything wrong

Made for kids


Best social media game ever
Lol I know dad wae

Like instagram it has a private mode

Is really safe one, recomendite for 10 years old really fun

9 Vimeo Vimeo is an ad-free open video platform that is headquartered in New York City. The company provides creators with tools and technology to host, distribute and monetize videos.

Safer version of youtube

Vimeo is like, where all the animators and artists hang out 😂 I really recommend Vimeo, even though you probaly would want to keep an eye out, not all art it appropriate. My age rating would be a 14+

10 Flickr Flickr is an image hosting service and video hosting service. It was created by Ludicorp in 2004. It has changed ownership several times and has been owned by SmugMug since April 2018.The Verge reported in March 2013 that Flickr had a total of 87 million registered members and more than 3.5 million more.

Flickr is just a social media site where you can post photos, videos and like, comment and share and follow people. You can report bad photos.
AGE 12

Its sounds like you can't give personal information on there sop that's why I voted Flickr

The Contenders
11 Twitter Twitter is an online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, "tweets," restricted to 140 characters.

It can be safe IF you strictly look at tweets from people u follow, such as youtubers you watch. Don't go into the feed cos there's a lot of toxic stuff in there

Twitter,the second favorite social media app in the world (after insta)
why is this lower than snapchat and pinterest
twitter is so safe,as long as you don't talk to creepos which you should know who they are by the way they be talkin

12 Facebook

Face book DOES have that stuff however it has the option the block that person or report them. be smart and just don't click on it or delete it. Facebook does NOT have a LOT of pornography or nudes

TLDR: Facebook is good, Snapchat is very unsafe and insta is not as bad as sc but still a bit unsafe.


If you're 13+ this is perfect for you. My mum is VERY VERY strict and says the "photo" social media like Instagram and Snapchat are unsafe because kids can send rude pictures. Snapchat is also especially bad because the snaps disappear, removing evidence of gross stuff. (Note about sc: I really wanna try the cute sc filters like the dog one but not allowed sc, oh well :( meh) and when my big sister was in grade 5 bad pics spread on insta so yeah.

Good news I can still use face filters in Facebook messenger so I win :)

Facebook has secure privacy settings and cool minion quotes I recommend. Also Messenger is good for people who want cute mask selfie lens on their far but aren't allowed sc so yeah 😃

Scale of Safest to non safest in my opinion:

1. Pinterest
2. Facebook
3. Instagram
4. ...more

13 MySpace

Particularly good since no one is on there.

14 Houseparty

Safe as can be
I recommend it for even 7 year olds!
I have checked through scientific research and found it was the most safe social media ever

15 Reddit

Can anonmously ask questions and stuff when they can't find the answer (e.g. why is the sky blue?, How to you guys cope with stress?, etc..)

I am allowed to use this site with out getting in trouble

16 Wishbone
17 Google Classroom

Your teachers watch what your doing

This ain't social media, right?

This is for students and teachers for school an amastradior will give students and teachers google accounts to use for school computer homework and much more

18 Bebo
19 Discord

I could be wrong, but it seems pretty safe to me.

bruh this should be higher
you can chat,voice call and video call in one app

20 Amino

Full of very nice people and it shows many of your interest. If u were at a school with your own computer, amino would not be blocked. Amino is one of my all time favorite apps. If u have it, then I reccomend you go to the Pets Amino.

I think that these are good since in 12 I think that these are prety safe


It’s made for kids. It is social media because you can share stuff online and comment

22 Tumblr Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007, and owned by Oath Inc.
