Everloop is “the safe social network for kids,” their website explains. It “revolutionizes the way kids under 13 connect online. Unlike other social networking sites for kids, Everloop provides a unique, age-appropriate social media experience for children with customized micro-networks or “loops” that safely connect kid-relevant content, services, applications and experiences.”
The new app will let kids do everything big kids can do on other social networking sites – i.e. upload photos, give status updates, and ‘goob’ or prank each other’s pages. Parents can monitor pages, but can’t post or engage in activities on the site.
The Goobit app is available at the iTunes App Store.
