It's like Facebook, but with training wheels. Disney has bought the company that makes Togetherville, a social network that caters to the 10-and-younger set, reports TechCrunch. Togetherville is similar to other social networks but with a layer of parental oversight—parents oversee their kids' friends and edit or delete items from profiles, even interact with them. It's part of Disney's recent push into digital media, notes the Hollywood Reporter. (More Walt Disney stories.)
