Imbee Social Networking Site for Tweens to Create Blogs, Upload Pictures, and Join Groups

Social networking for kids? As a mom to three teenage girls, the idea of them hopping on the computer and networking with complete strangers on the internet is horrifing to me. Then I heard about Imbee and all of it's wonderful safety features and I couldn't wait to introduce it to my girls, who have been begging to join a social networking site.
" is an online social networking community just for kids between the ages of 8 and 14. Much like MySpace or Facebook, allows tweens to create their own page on the web and share stories, pictures, and thoughts with friends. The difference is that is a completely safe and protected site. "
  • It's free.
  • Kids can create a blog, upload pictures, join and create groups, and make trading cards.
  • imbee is parent approved and teacher endorsed.
  • In order for kids sign up, an email is sent to parents for approval.
  • Parents have to sign in with a credit card for a child to join, so imbee knows it's parent approved and know who the "adult" is that's signed in.
  • Designed to provide parents with visibility to view their child's activities.
  • Parents can be as active or passive as they'd like, by choosing to receive emailed update reports in real time about everything their child is doing on the site or simply reviewing reports sent at the end of the day.
  • has extremely limited search functionality, so kids can only become "friends" with other kids they actually know from school or activities.
  • The site is also completely closed to the Internet at large, so postings cannot be picked up by search engines.
  • And once a child graduates from, all of their information is permanently deleted instead of languishing online for eternity.

See for yourself and you'll see why it's become so popular with kids, parents, and teachers.
