Safe Social Networking for our kids!

By | September 23rd, 2010|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Whether you like it or not your child will probably have access to a computer and the internet at a very early age, by the age of 5 these children will be able to use many areas of a computer and surprisingly enough the first thing they remember is how to connect to the internet.   Has your young child asked for a Facebook account yet?   Sites like Facebook MySpace and Twitter are being blocked from many school networks as they are not suitable for young children, which is right those sites are not, but young children are aware of these sites, they see their parents or guardians and siblings using the networks and understandably they want to join in. (I'll just remind you that sites like Facebook, Bebo and MySpace  set minimum ages of around 13) Why shouldn't they become involved? We can teach them how to use social networking sites safely and efficiently when they are young so that by the time they get to teenagers they know how to keep safe and be more responsible.

By | September 9th, 2010|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , |

I was excited when Paul contacted me from http://womworld.com/ a Nokia-sponsored platform saying that they had seen and liked my blogs and my art. Paul asked me if would I like to trial the Nokia N900 handset and particularly the Sketch application which comes loaded free on it. Asking me to share my experiences good or bad with the WOMWorld blog.

Facebook say they have "no objection in principle" to installing an anti-paedophile panic button on its site for kids who feel that they may be in danger.…. This one statement has produced two different sides of coverage….. Facebook Might Add ‘Panic Button’ To Protect Kids The Next Web Facebook rules out installing 'panic button' BBC News What exactly does that statement mean? Facebook was criticised for not doing enough to protect our youngsters after the murder of Ashleigh Hall. The schoolgirl was killed by 33 year old serial rapist Peter Chapman who pretended to be young boy on the site and lured her to her death. However it seems that a CEOP panic button would not have helped Ashleigh as it has been reported that she didn’t suspect his motives so she had no reason to feel threatened by him, he seemed to her like a pleasant teenage boy. This led her to secretly meet him, telling her mum she was staying at a friend’s house – soon later she was dead. I’m not sure why Facebook would not want [...]
