Yoursphere is a new little venture Zane and I are trying out. It’s a safe place for kids and teens to hang out.
Not just safe, they even have a Law Enforcement Task Force on staff (with some pretty impressive resumes.)
Parents are sign up, have their information validated and validate their children’s accounts and then have access through a parental dashboard to see everything the kids are posting.
Friending is monitored by age so an 8 year old can’t be friends with an 18 year old. And 18 is the age limit.
Kids are rewarded for their positive interactions in the community with credits they can save up and use to donate to charity or trade in for DVD’s, Ugg boots, iPods, iPhones and all kinds of cool swag.
If you’d like to join us, here’s a referral code you can use: YSMC-0056
Zane’s username is Zane.
The one drawback I’ve seen thus far is the irritating video that auto-starts on the main site. You’re warned. Turn your volume down and click stop before you start looking around the page and I’ll try to convince them how bad auto-play videos are.

Big Brother requires I say this: “I wrote this review while participating in the Yoursphere Test Drive program by Mom Central on behalf of Yoursphere. I received a free lifetime Gold membership on Yoursphere.com,Yoursphere t-shirts, and a $50 American Express gift card to facilitate my review.”
