Bellevue, WA, June 13, 2011 --(PR.com)-- It starts off innocentlyenough: your child gets some Instant Messenger notices from someone shedoesn't know. She may even see her photos tagged or some
rathercute but puzzling messages left on her Facebook mail box. While thingsmay start off rather harmless, your kid's online safety may be onthe line. The person sending her messages might not be who
he claims tobe. The person your kid is exchanging "cute" emails with mighthave a criminal past-of harming children.
Sounds extreme? Not a chance. As Facebook and Twitter's subscriber base explode, more and more sex offenders and potential offenders can take advantage of these services' powerful features to find,
reach out, and "befriend" your child. "The sad truth is that many parents are still stuck in the 90s mindset that the greatest danger the Internet poses for their kid is pornography," said Oliver
Thompson, Media Relations Principal at ixDownload.com, the Internet's leading software download and review resource website. "It is very disturbing to realize that the rise of social networks has
made child predation much much easier than before. Parents need to expand their focus from illegal content to inappropriate messaging and contact. Parents must use parental control software that
takes into consideration the sad realities social networks and chat networks help make possible when it comes to child safety. More and more kids are becoming vulnerable to stalkers and predators
online. Parents need to know how to select the proper software that decreases their kids' chances of connecting with possible predators," added Thompson. In order to help parents make informed
choices in selecting the right software packages to protect their children's online privacy and security, ixDownload.com has released its Parental Control Software Guide.
