Type of Website:
Social network site for Hollywood Arts students
TheSlap.com is the Hollywood Arts social networking website where the students post statuses, photos, videos, and news at the school. Other students comment on what they do and follow them. It is similar to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube, and other social networking sites. The site used to be an active website where there were games and posts by the Victorious characters, but the site now redirects to nick.com.
In the show, TheSlap is a website that the students at Hollywood Arts use. Tori's posts to TheSlap are often used in episodes to transition between scenes. On the real website, the main characters post updates, photos, videos, and blogs.
Characters that are on TheSlap include:
- Beck Oliver
- André Harris
- Cat Valentine
- Jade West
- Rex Powers
- Trina Vega
- Robbie Shapiro
- Erwin Sikowitz
- Sinjin Van Cleef
- Tori Vega
- Lane Alexander
Much like in the show, you can comment on the stars' posts, watch videos, and look at pictures put up by the characters. The site has extras from the show, games, and music. It was rumored that Helen may get an account, though it never happened. TheSlap is also a bookmark in the iCarly theme, like DanWarp, Zaplook, or SplashFace.
The website completely shut down in April 4, 2018 after Dan Schneider left Nickelodeon. The website now redirects to the show's page on Nick.com, as does iCarly.com and SamandCat.com.
Once you have an account, you can add favorite videos pictures or games and comment on people's statuses. You most importantly can create an avatar, as there is a spot on the home page spot that is called Avatar of the Week.

Depending on the holiday or season coming up, the background on TheSlap changes. After the holiday is over, it reverts back to the original background.
- As a series wide goof, the show was very inconsistent on whether TheSlap used "followers" or "friends" to determine status. In "The Breakfast Bunch", Tori threatened to unfriend Jade on TheSlap, as the two were shown to be Slap friends in "Wi-Fi in the Sky", but several other episodes, most notably "The Slap Fight" judge popularity by followers.
- Despite the site being run by, and for, Hollywood Arts students and personnel, it can easily be accessed by anyone as shown in "iParty with Victorious" when Carly was quickly linked to Tori's TheSlap page.
- After Victorious premiered, the link to TheSlap.com became an easter egg in iCarly's opening sequence.
- All of the main characters but Trina and Jade had their Slap posts used as scene transitions.
- At the end of some episodes, an advert for TheSlap is seen.
- In most dubbed versions of the series, characters read aloud (off-screen) what they're writing on TheSlap in cutscenes.
