Children are increasingly using social media, but there is a growing concern about the safety of this online environment. There have been numerous cases of children being exposed to inappropriate content, such as pornography and violence. In addition, social media can be a breeding ground for cyberbullying and other forms of online abuse.
The proposed children's social media app would address these concerns by providing a safe and fun online environment for children. The app would feature a character named Charli, who would guide children through curated educational videos. The videos would be designed to teach children about a variety of topics, such as science, math, and history.
Interviews and Survey
During our interview process, we discovered that users rely heavily on others personal experiences, thus needing to use multiple sources of information which are frequently inaccurate.
Therefore, we believe users need an accessible source of information and that we might be able to help if we provide a collaborative space for the dietary restricted community.
We might do this by creating an inclusive and efficient platform to professional knowledge and personal experiences. Doing this will allow our users to feel more at ease with their dining options and spend less time conducting personal research.
