ThatHelps

A lot or a little?

Parents need to know that ThatHelps is a social network that focuses on feel good stories, volunteer opportunities, and concrete ways to help improve society and the world. Kids need an email address to sign up, or they can use an Apple, Facebook, or Google account. Once in, kids scroll through posts in up to 16 categories such as Animal Welfare, Social Justice, or The Arts. ThatHelps has all the typical pieces of a social media platform including posting text and photos, sharing, following others' posts, joining groups, and inviting friends to the app. If kids turn on location services, the app will pinpoint local volunteer opportunities. There's also an option to include location data with posts that go out to the community. The developers claim that they carefully curate all content that they post, but there's no indication that they moderate user-generated content. Kids can share posts with third party apps such as Facebook and Twitter. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.
