Village Social rated 4 stars by common sense media

Designed for families

Village Social was started by two parents after their daughter was targeted by a predator on Instagram. They designed Village Social to ensure that wouldn't happen to other kids, while creating a tech-positive tool that empowers kids to thrive with real friends in a safer environment.

Village Social is a private social network for the people and things that matter. It can replace or complement other messaging and social media apps.

Protection kids deserve

Reverse the toxic culture where sending or asking for nudes is 'normal.' Nudity and explicit images are blocked automatically, protecting against life-changing mistakes. Alerts keep parents informed by providing early warning for cyberbullying, profanity and sexual language.

Content alerts informs parents if their are inappropriate messages or images being sent or received
Getting Started Guide

Village redefines social apps

A fresh new approach. Village is a private social network without the risks or distractions of social MEDIA.

No vanity metrics

Stop worrying about snap streaks, likes and follows. It's not a competition, it's life. Share it with those who matter most.

No public content

Bye bye 'Kardashians', oddly satisfying videos and click bait. We get that discovery can fuel passion, but wasting hours watching is nothing compared to actually doing.

No addictive feeds

Feeds filled with ads, influencers and fake news are gone so you can focus on real life. Talk about liberating. 😎

No explicit images

Discovery and feeds often push explicit content in front of our kids. We take it a step further and actively screen all images before they are sent or shared.

Private. Safe. Healthy.

A real alternative to social media.
