What is CollegeHumor?
CollegeHumor is an entertainment website targeted at a college audience. The site consists mostly of video content, much of which is user-generated. CollegeHumor also has an official staff that writes and makes many of the videos on the site. In addition to videos, you can find articles and photos on the site.
Concerns for Parents
- Because it is targeted at a college-age adult audience, much of the site's content includes strong profanity and sexual content. Although there is a great deal of clean and enjoyable content on the site, the sexual humor on the site can be graphic, and language is not censored.
- There is also an "R-rated" section of the site that contains content more explicit than the above mentioned issues.
How Can I Keep My Child Safe?
- Recognize that this site is explicitly aimed at adults, particularly college-age. Children younger than the target audience are particularly vulnerable on such a site. To protect children from explicit content, parents can block the site or simply abide by the recommended target audience age.
- Preview content your child wishes to see in order to personally determine if it is appropriate.
