What It Is:
YouNow is website and app where kids stream live to the internet from any internet or 4G/LTE Connection
Who is on it?:
It’s very popular right now, an upward-trending app and website, especially among kids ages 10-20.
Would My Child Want It?:
The technology isn’t new but this platform is; it’s popular enough, though, that your child might want it simply because other kids have it.
Where Can It Be Used?:
Anywhere with Cell Phone or Wifi service or internet connection.
What Should I Watch Out For?:
Everything! The most trending video channels are #Girls and #Boys – this should be an obvious red flag to every parent. Also these are mostly all minors and a lot of the girls show cleavage, which is very odd and sad.
What Are The Positives?:
We can think of no positives unless you like your kids chatting with strangers.
What Are The Negatives?:
Everything about this is a bad idea.
What We Think:
Keep your kids away from it forever. Too many risks.
