Safe Social Networking Sites for Kids

Posted by on Feb 26, 2014 in | 0 comments

Nowadays, many kids draw little distinction between online life and real life. Popular social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook are designed to be used by people who are above the age of 13 years because they don’t provide a safe environment for children.

Western Australia and Queensland have already decided to adapt this method in 2011 and the changes will be implemented from 2015.
