Top 10 Safest Social Media Sites for Kids
I feel like Instagram is safe. If your teenager has a private account, it should be fine. If you still feel on the fence, you could make a rule that you get to check who they follow and who follows them, as well as what they post and who they talk to.
There can be some inappropriate accounts/feed on Instagram, but it is safe. I think children 12 and up should be able to use it, and children 12 and under should have some adult supervision.
Private accounts allow you to choose who follows you and stop inappropriate people from viewing your profile.Visit Website
WhatsApp and Pinterest are my top two picks. With Pinterest, it's hard to talk to anyone or give out personal info, so... yeah, it's safe. Plus, it's a great place to find recipes for cooking 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, etc.
With Snapchat, I feel like it works if your child is on the older side, I say about 13 or 14. Just because they may understand that if used inappropriately, Snapchat can be very dangerous.
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 screenshotted 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 their account, they can watch their children use funny filters!Visit Website
They should have restricted mode on or go on YouTube Kids.
Even though I don't have it, I love it. It's so funny. However, there was a recent incident involving a suicide video, and all the schools sent a warning to delete the app.
I haven't seen any porn, pro-eating disorders, or anything like that.
Really safe. Can't look at people unless you have their contact.
I don't see why it's a 16+. It's so safe, 10+.
This is extremely safe.
Roblox has a lot of restrictions you can add to keep your kids safe. There is a voice chat feature for accounts that have their age set to 13+, but there is a safety system to ensure kids don't access voice chat without their parent's permission.
Is it really social media, though? Also, there are restrictions that can be applied.
Made for kids.
A safer version of YouTube.
Flickr is just a social media site where you can post photos, videos, and like, comment, share, and follow people. You can report bad photos.
It sounds like you can't give personal information on there, so that's why I voted Flickr.
Facebook DOES have that stuff. However, it has the option to 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.
This isn't a social media platform. However, it is safe as it is primarily for school work, and one needs a code to join classrooms.
Particularly good since no one is on there.
I could be wrong, but it seems pretty safe to me.
It's made for kids. It qualifies as social media because you can share stuff online and comment.
