A brand new COPPA-compliant social network called Viddiverse has hit the digital media scene, officially premiering today with a raft of tween-targeted video content from partners including Nelvana Enterprises and Zodiak Kids, according to Kidscreen. In addition to animated and live-action programs, Viddiverse will feature music videos and a daily three-hour live show featuring popular D.J. Rick Adams (AOL’s Radio KOL).
Created by former Nickelodeon executive and founder of AOL Kids & Teens Malcolm Bird, the new online destination lets kids ages 8 to 13 watch videos in a safe environment, build profiles, share content and create their own videos that can be edited with Viddiverse tools to add extra elements like picture frames, backgrounds and — of course — mustaches.
Other notable content partners include Shaftesbury, Smoke Bomb Entertainment, Distribution 360 and GINX TV. Viddiverse is launching with a variety of kids series: Totally Amp’d, Unlikely Heroes, Skatoony, Being Ian, Donkey Kong Country, Pelwick, Braceface, Grossology, Ned’s Newt, Ruby Gloom, Wild C.A.T.S., Dog City, QPiz, Class of Titans, Janet’s Planet, Dani’s House, Summer in Transylvania and Tricky TV.
