In certain ways, KidNet will be similar to KidzTalk, but there are some important differences. KidzNet will allow you to only see updates from people you mark as friends in your news feed, so you can keep updated on what they are doing. Likewise, your friends can keep in touch with you. While you can do this in a way with KidzTalk, there is no central place for it. KidzTalk is more about Questions and Answers, but KidzNet will be a place to communicate with your friends. You can form your own groups and have discussions.
KidzTalk will not be replaced by KidzNet. Both will be available and serve different functions. Once you actually see it, you will understand it better and we expect this new product to evolve and improve over time.
Sorry, but we cannot allow information that can personally identify you, since we need to keep kids safe. It is our top priority. However, as you can see on KidzTalk, there are plenty of things to discuss and do that don't involve using your full name or pictures of yourself.
