Are you wondering what are the best kinds of social media apps for kids?  The problem is that it isn’t always easy to find social sites specifically designed to be beneficial for kids. Though 45% of teens say they use social media every day, they rank it lower in personal enjoyment than every other kind of media, according to our just released Census Report on Tweens and Teens and Media Usage .  It is possible many teens use social media simply because their friends do and they don’t want to miss anything, rather than actually liking what social media has to offer.

Kids are moving away from having one social-media destination  and instead are downloading different apps for different purposes.  We have compiled some apps that make it easier to promote positive interactions, as well as those apps that enable teens to explore their interests, be creative, make connections and learn about the world.  Take a look at these apps that might make your kids (and you) a little happier.

Have a great week and don’t forget to use Common Sense.
