Going back to the AOL model?

If you are worried about seeing bad things on Facebook/Youtube then stop using it!

If you are worried about your children seeing bad things, stop them using it!

If a significant proportion of "users" leave then Facebook/Youtube might have an incentive.

It doesn't take much effort to avoid offensive material on either of the big advertising networks.

Of course if either becomes a sterile walled garden of pre-approved content then I for one will go elsewhere. I still remember the AOL version of the Internet and will certainly not tolerate a curated internet.
