AOL Launches SafeSocial....To Screen Your Kid's Every Friend

This week, AOL unleashed a new tool to help parents sleep at night, a tool called SafeSocial that protects kids on the internet. SafeSocial grants access to key pieces of information about kids’ internet accounts, social media friends, photos and posts with key words that respond to danger. A signature of the tool seems to be the fact that kids have to agree to their parents’ use of SafeSocial. In other words, SafeSocial is less like spying than say, supervising with permission.
