Two very bizarre sites have appeared on the internet in the last year. which are both very unsettling; two new ways to get lucky on the internet. They are poorly labelled as Social networking sites or chat forums, which gives Social networking a whole new meaning.    Someone once said that “The internet is for porn”   I feel that these sites are worse than your standard porn sites, they degrade the internet and disgraces us as users.

Paedo Alert! Protecting our kids

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.…. Paedo Alert! 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?   I think it means they are biding their time until they can come up with another solution, maybe they don’t like to be told what to do? Facebook was criticised for not doing enough to […]
