Let’s examine some social networking applications for teens and kids.

Llama for smartphone users

Llama uses the cell phone towers to operate by default and thus finishes the battery like a bottle of bourbon. That is faster as compared to Global Positioning System and Wi-Fi usage. In a populous area, that is not bad. It would have been difficult with GPS and Wi-Fi options available.

It is a free application in Android Market, but if you buy the llama for one and half dollar donation version, then you are promoting product development. It has the Locale SMS plug in and can be used to send texts costing one buck.

As of 2012, there is no third party application, which exists for the Apple smartphones. Reminders, is an application which can provide location wise events and does not give social interaction features.
