The Everloop Mobile App is Only for Kids 13 or Younger

Privacy and Internet Safety are major concerns for parents when their kids join a social network, but the Everloop mobile app is a phone-based social network that makes cyberspace a secure place for its only and most vulnerable audience -- under 13 year-olds.

Strategically filling the void that Facebook has left untouched, Everloop enforces a 'no-adults-allowed' policy to ensure that the network is just for tweens and their peers. Features like 'post flagging' exist so kids cannot swear or submit inappropriate comments; this is in an effort to teach them appropriate Internet behavior. Another interesting aspect of Everloop is the 'Goob' function, which allows kids to virtually prank each other in a more old-school way (who doesn't love a good tee-pee-ing?) to keep children young and wholesome. Given the dependancy that people have on their phones, the choice to make it mobile-based is a promising development.

Everloop is one of the first of newer social media networks that looks to create an environment providing parents peace of mind knowing that their youngsters are safe.
