The biggest kids trends for 2020

Every year we ask PopJammers (AKA the experts) to predict kids trends for the following year. Here’s what we can look forward to in 2020… Christmas is a time for tradition, and one of our favourites is asking the kids on PopJam, our moderated content-sharing platform, what they think the big trends will be for the next year. PopJam gives kids a safe digital space to share their thoughts, without sharing their data or personal info. For 2019, PopJammers predicted big things for Fortnite, TikTok and YouTube, but also squishies, phones (particularly the new iPhone), unicorns, the Nintendo Switch, LOL Surprise!, Stranger Things and money. All of these have been big, although squishies and unicorns have definitely been fading away. But being tangible Christmas gifts (and family members catching on late to some trends) may resurrect them. PopJam’s top predictions for kids trends for 2020 are: Read More

Celebrating Anti-Bullying Week on PopJam

We work to create a kind and caring community on PopJam, SuperAwesome’s safe-social content platform, and a huge part of that is supporting events that spread positive messaging to kids. As part of this, we participate in Anti-Bullying Week, which runs from 11-15 November. The Anti-Bullying Alliance is a coalition of organisations working to tackle bullying. This year’s theme is ‘Change Starts With Us’, and this is being echoed on PopJam. Read More

Q3 2019 Kids Trends: VSCO girls vs E-girls, & Fortnite freak-outs

VSCO girls are the biggest key trend of Q3, but will they be replaced by E-girls? Plus, the end of Fortnite Chapter One worried gamers with a big stunt. Every quarter, we look at what’s trending in the kids space and we do this by asking the experts - actual children. We asked kids on PopJam, our safe content-sharing platform, their thoughts on a range of subjects. We don’t collect any data on PopJammers, but we do compile the most-mentioned answers to identify the top trends.  Read More

How we implemented kid-safe analytics with Amplitude

PopJam is a social platform that is built from the ground up to be safe, appropriate and fully anonymous for kids. It’s a safe, moderated community for kids to engage with their favourite content and brands, designed specifically for the safety and data privacy requirements (COPPA, GDPR-K) of the under-13 audience. Because it is aimed at an audience of 7-12 year olds, we take both privacy and compliance extremely seriously. A critical concern for any platform is the product analytics you use to measure and learn. This is never a trivial thing to get right. Deciding what to measure, and how, requires careful thought, but at least you have a massive array of products and solutions to choose from, often with fully-featured SDKs to make implementation quicker and easier.
