Top Ten Safest Social Media Sites for Kids

The Top Ten

1 Instagram

Though, there are a lot of nude accounts. :C

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 - LightningBlade

So fun for all ages just remember to act safe and responsibly while using

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. - Anonymousxcxc

Not really what most kids want but really safe

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

3 Snapchat 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

Snapchat is safe because it allows you to have a private account and there is lots of private options in settings and the picture that you take can only be put on your story for your friends to see or can be sent to certain friends

There is now ghost mode. you might think this is unsafe, it isn't. you can turn it on and off. just like texting, but with pictures

As long as you only add friends and don't send anything your not supposed to then its pretty safe. don't recomend if your younger than 12 though.

You actually know how many people are viewing your pictures and who all are taking screenshots. You can block such jerks. It’s save during texting also. You just have to make sure no unknowns or harmful people added. Nobody can see your friends or any details etc. 👻best

4 YouTube 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 is not safe for kids, there's a lot of inappropriate content including YouTube poops. Little kids may click on a YTP thinking it's an actual cartoon. And DON'T get me started with those Spiderman and Elsa videos...

5 Flickr Flickr

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

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.

9 Facebook

Facebook is not appropriate. There is too much language and sex.

AGE 15

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

...and someone else whom 's not friend with you can download then use your photos for bad .

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. Snapchat
Non safest

10 Roblox

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

The safest - JoshuaFiorio

For the most part, safe for kids. there are lots of ways you can be harassed and bullied, though. people also often find ways to bypass restrictions to keep it safe for kids. - TuxIsAPerson

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

Twitter is not appropriate for kids even though it is number seven.

AGE 16

Fart nuggets

I'm on Twitter, IT'S NOT FOR KIDS - Squadela


Like instagram it has a private mode

Best social media game ever
Lol I know dad wae

14 Wishbone

Wishbone is not safe for children in any sense whatsoever. There are almost no safety regulations, to the best of my knowledge no way to report or delete images, and tons of pornography. I once made an account and after posting a selfie of my, at the time, 12-year-old self, (an innocent selfie- I was drinking Starbucks and wearing winter clothes) 3 porn-creating accounts began following me.

15 Google+

Google is the source of all social medias there is. If you think it’s not, then you don’t understand. NOOB!

16 Dubsmash


17 Friendster

Friendster sounds good by the name but it is not appropriate for kids. Caution to all parents.

18 Wattpad
19 Discord

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