Togetherville - An Online Neighborhood for Kids

Togetherville is a social networking for kids that has gotten quite a bit of press lately. I was alerted to the site by Philip Cummings. Togetherville mimics many of the aspects of social networking that has made Facebook so popular. Using their Facebook login credentials, parents can create Togetherville accounts for their children. By using their Facebook credentials, parents can link their childrens' Togetherville accounts to the children of their Facebook friends. This system is designed to create a small network of trusted, verified contacts for children to interact with.

Learn more about Togetherville in the video below.


Applications for Education
Togetherville could be a good, safe environment in which children ages 6 through 10 can learn to conduct appropriate online interactions with their peers.
