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!

love to snap photos

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.

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

There is restrictions and youtube kids

Watch what u wanna watch

5 WhatsApp

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

Really safe, basically text

Only your contacts

I don’t see why it’s a 16+. It’s so safe 10+.

6 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+

7 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

Made for kids

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.


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 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

10 TikTok

It is a really sage app my only suggestion is that if you have a child under the age of 10 kinda look out for exploiting content but personally ages higher then that are mostly more aware of whats wrong and right and there are parental settings I just think you should let your kids live and have fun while they are kids

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

Safe. even safer if u go on private. good content

tik tok is not for kids, social media is also not for kids, kids should not download social media apps, they should have fun with friends and play games or anything BUT not social media

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.
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. Snapchat
Non safest

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 Bebo
16 Wishbone
17 Google Classroom

Your teachers watch what your doing

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


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

19 Tumblr Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007, and owned by Oath Inc.
20 Dubsmash
21 Wattpad
22 Discord

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

23 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.

amino is great but there are some dating group you should not let him/her to join at, but the other groups are good, and it's good for anyone

24 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..)
