AOL Launches Program To Protect Kids On Facebook

Earlier this month, AOL joined the privacy bandwagon with the introduction of its SafeSocial service, a tool that grants parents access to key pieces of their kids’ online lives, from pictures and posts to Internet accounts and Facebook friends. Now AOL has revealed the technology behind the tool, announcing today it will partner with SocialShield, a San Bruno, Calif.-based software company, to power the SafeSocial offering.
