As with any social media though, it must be treated with the utmost care.
I gotta say that I am surprised at the negative reviews this app is getting I use it myself i own cat amino music amino tv & movie amino and food amino I haven't had a real problem with the apps myself yes I get you can talk to strangers but that's the point to make new friends if you are concerned about what your kids are using in the community's make an account yourself and see who knows you might have fun I love my Amino's 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.
Make extra sure that they know how to use the apps reporting and blocking features to disengage with users who are behaving badly.
(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!
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 says not to get this app if your younger than eighteen so you get anyway its not the apps fault its like saying here child have this beer even though your to younger. ohhh this beer is bad for you lets go tell the beer company this!!!
The community has guidelines where they strictly monitor what people post.
Many of the communities are user-moderated, run by people with little moderation experience who are often minors themselves.
AMINO itself can include chats about pokemon but then members send you pornographic images (Seriously!?
), Everything bad about social medias can be found on metal amino & it's much more than on facebook,twitter etc. Here's a link for more details: I have added slashes between paragraphs, because the site does not support page breaks.
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.
// While Amino is intended to be accessible for young users, it is still an online social community.
