Read in 1 min Uncategorized Print / Download Article Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Zepeto Published: November 1, 2019 The Scoop With Zepeto, users can create their own avatars and then interact with friends’ avatars as they would on other social media platforms. To create avatars, users take a selfie, which the app uses to make an animated version of the user. Users can use game coins they either earn or buy with real money to purchase different outfits and add decorations to their images. Additionally, users can send text messages to each other through Zepeto. Our Take on Zepeto While Zepeto can be fun for kids, there are some concerning features. First, the app promotes consumerism by consistently encouraging users to purchase more clothes or decorations. Parents beware. Although it is possible for parents to monitor the app Zepteo, the texting feature allows strangers to text users. Make sure to check out all of our previous apps/websites.
