Just for Tweens
Where do you go online if you’re too young to sign up for Facebook but you’ve outgrown sites aimed at younger kids? Most social networking sites exclude kids under age 13, because the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act makes it illegal for websites to collect personal information from children without a parent’s permission. Luckily, there are some great sites designed for the tween crowd. These sites are free to join, with a parent’s permission.
If you’re into celebrities, fanlala.com is the site for you! You can become a “fan” of your favorite stars in Clubs and connect with other fans. The site also offers News, Quizzes, Videos, Photos, Polls and Games.
No matter what your interests are, you’re sure to enjoy Grom Social, gromsocial.com. This site was created by preteen Zachary Marks and offers many of the same features as popular social networking sites. You can chat, share photos and videos, and create events. Join a group to discuss your interests with other members. Groups include Sports, Gaming, Entertainment, Health & Fitness and more.
