Understandably, social media raises more than a few concerns for parents, who are wary about their children sharing private information and their location online with no real way to control who sees what. Recognizing this, Everloop.com has launched the first social mobile app geared toward kids and tweens under the age of 13: Everloop Goobit.
CEO and co-founder of Everloop, Hilary DeCesare, is enthusiastic about the new app, which meets the needs of both kids and parents, “Now, kids can saty in touch, no matter where they are, using a safer, secure, and fun resource that’s truly the first-of-its-kind.”

Kids and tweens are able to post and share photos and videos, hang out on loops, and send “goobs”. Like Google (News - Alert) Plus, kids are able to choose which loops they want to post to, rather than making all photos accessible to followers.
Most importantly, Everloop Goobit offers the safety features that parents are looking for, such as parental verification and moderated communication, which prevents the use of inappropriate language and cyber bullying.
There are also special features for engaging in childlike fun, including the ability to virtually “toilet paper” a friend’s mobile screen. There is a wide range of games, including: fashion games, racing games, shooting games, and math games. The full features can be previewed on the Everloop YouTube (News - Alert) channel at here.
Everloop Goobit is now available in the Apple (News - Alert) App Store. It is currently only available for users in the U.S. and Canada.
Goobit promises to be a safe and fun way for kids to interact with their friends and play on their mobile devices, without the countless drawbacks that come with Facebook (News - Alert), Twitter, FourSquare, Instagram, and other social media platforms geared toward adults. By meeting the needs of the under-13 crowd and their parents, Goobit has the potential to be the next big thing in social media.
