Obviously, I'm a huge advocate of communication via the internet. Sites like Bebo and MySpace have been amazing examples of online social networks that facilitate the free exchange of thoughts and personal information. These tools can potentially be great for developing and maintaining friendships. But, I've become aware of the potential dangers of MySpace. There have been numerous cases of threats, of predators, and of young people experiencing personal harm because of meeting someone and becoming attached online.
I think it's sad but realistic that parents need to monitor their children's activities. I'm reviewing a product called SpectorSoft, which can monitor various items such as a myspace login, keystrokes, screen shots, and even searches. Even though it costs around $100, it's worth it to ensure the safety of your children!
