What do you all think of social networks geared towards kids? Do you know of any with great security (parent approved friends, no private messages, etc)? Nevaeh really wants to do something like that, but I haven't found a safe place for her. I also really only want her to "Friend" her real life friends. She keeps trying to sneak over to google+ and I'm just not comfortable with that, for at least 4-5 more years. But I do see value in a place where she can share gerbil pictures with her friends, share music, and just say hi. I'd love for her to have a few safe place for her to have a social outlet... if there is one.
We have two options... one is FB, but I've told the kids they can't have an account until they're 13, and I have to know all their friends (which is mostly just church anyway). The other is a private group formembers of the Davidson young Scholar's program, and it's heavily monitored. I haven't seen any general social groups that I'd trust for the majority of kids.
Generally, I don't trust them. There are some exceptions of course. Even things like FB CAN be safer, if parents make it so.
My kids don't do social networks, at least not yet. But they also have no interest in them. If they did, I'd actually look into them further.
