Mother Hen responds
Well well quite a storm going on why is everyone so Angry All I'm trying to do is provide a site that does not have any outbound links and no commercial advertising. Whether children belong on the Internet is not and never will be the question . The Question is what to do with them when they do go on. I and you are not here to police the children of the world nor could you if you wanted to. It is a fact of the age that children will find their way onto the net if we want them to or not. I am trying to do something positive about this, as I have 2 children of my own What are you doing about it?????
As far as my spelling goes English is my third language I speak 4 so my apologies maybe I should have written my response in Dutch or German then you would have no call to question my spelling as far as being sued the site facebookforkids has been owned (not by me that is) for over 2 years and has been for up fo sale for 18 months, anyone could have bought it. and as for MGM etc the videos are being streamed by google's YouTube so they are the ones to sue
Try to be posssitive shouting about the problem of kids on the internet is not solving anything DO SOMETHING
I read your article with great interest as I am heavily involved in the design and implementation of a social site named facebook for kids Your unfortunate title makes it appear you are referring to our new site however your article shows insight into the many problems faced by security especially where children are involved. Facebookforkids.com unlike the site you are referring to in the article allows no advertising, no external links, no chatting at all on the the site, it is also very heavily monitored and any and all media has had all external links disabled so a child cannot inadvertently click his or her way to inappropriate material. the site is still in beta testing and is not finished yet. I would not want your readers to think we have in any way any association with the site you are writing about Facebookforkids.com takes our security and your children's safety very seriously It is built on the educational social network platform elgg and we are at present installing more security features to get ready for our opening
