I don't think that this app is as bad as what the other parents are saying, I use this app myself and I love it.
There are some communities that children shouldn't be in, but I think it should be fine as long as you monitor what communities your kids are in from time to time. If your kid likes metal that's great BUT don't let him/her be on Metal Amino.
We do our best to educate and monitor their internet actions but I learned how easy it is for good kids to be targeted and slowly sucked into participating in a way that is not of their usual character. My daughter and her friends are obsessed with this app.
After removing the app she finds ways to get back on secretly. Sorry about the wall of text, but I really believe the information I wrote is valuable.)// I see a lot of reviews of this app that seem very shocked and reactionary to me, and I would like to provide some clear, and hopefully helpful information.My 12 year old son enjoyed chatting with others who he thought enjoyed similar interests and writing stories was slowly introduced to role play chats that moved into mature language and sexual content and was told to lie about his age and to hide this from his parents.Obviously, this app is not safely monitored for children.(And make sure that they know it is okay to do so- I often see a stigma against blocking that considers it cowardly or weak; make sure your child is not harmed by that rhetoric!) // And most of all, make it absolutely, totally clear that your child can ALWAYS come to you if they see something on the app that they don't know how to deal with!
