Navigation and Features
At the top of the dashboard, you will see a link to your profile, messages you’ve received and your notifications.
Going to the Teens tab of the Menu allows you to see other members who are either nearby your location, new, or online on the site. There is also a link that shows the most viewed a.k.a most popular profiles – as with anything in high school popularity seem to be regarded pretty highly in the community.
The Forum tab on the Menu is a bulletin board of sorts where members can post different topics to talk about. Some of the members use this functionality to get themselves noticed by the community. Posts like “Can we be friends?” and “Looking for a boyfriend/girlfriend” abound here.
Going to the Chat Online tab brings you to a Messenger link that shows all the online members as you’re online. A proverbial private chat bar – similar to Facebook’s can be found at the bottom of the screen. There is also a general chatroom where all members can interact.
The Hot or Not tab brings you to a Tinder-type platform that allows the members to match with other members based solely on their display photo. This is a convenient channel to filter through the platform’s members and find a match.
Teens are particularly fond of the communication apps Kik and Snapchat and these are integrated into the Our Teen Network interface. There are tabs for both of these apps where members’ Kik and Snapchat profiles are listed.
Photos tab is a stream of the members’ newly uploaded photos in real time.
Our Teen Network Review: Bottomline
The platform looks after its members base and ensure that they are actually teenagers, and prohibits content that involves hate, bullying and sexually-explicit material. A somewhat safer community for teens dating, the website actually seems more like a place for teens to hang-out, socialize and interact.
