Net Nanny Social
Searches the web for child’s social media accounts
Protecting children online has be- come a little easier with the launch of the Net Nanny Social a cloud- based monitoring system with an alerts dashboard that allows parents to monitor the social media networks their children participate in. The Net Nanny Social supports monitoring on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Flickr, Pinterest, Photobucket, Pandora, Orkut and MySpace. It monitors activities that include children’s online friends, cyber bulling, sexual predators, privacy concerns, and reputation-damaging pictures or videos. At the core of Net Nanny’s parental control solution is its real-time content categorization which effectively blocks access to websites and its contents based on the keywords found on the sites users are on at any given time. This smart approach to protecting households from inappropriate content on the internet takes into consideration the fact that website contents are dynamic – in effect, they change, and what constitutes inappropriate content today may not be the same tomorrow – and vice versa.
Net Nanny requires installation of an app for full access to Facebook, LinkedIn, and other sites. It also does not identify possibly dangerous friends and can only search one email address per child. But the ‘smart’ way of categorizing and blocking access to undesirable content on the web coupled with the ability to set internet usage time, built-in alerts, clear reporting and remote management of profile settings makes Net Nanny a well rounded Parental Control Software Solution for families.
