Concerned Mom Creates New Social Networking Site for Kids After Discovering 90,000 Predators Lurk Online
Mary Kay Hoal tried everything she could to keep her daughter off of myspace.

She forbade her from using the site, put password locks on the computer and even blocked the site. Still, her daughter found ways to access the popular social networking site. Hoal`s concerns stemmed from information and statistics that show 90,000 registered s*x offenders were on myspace, one out of every five kids are sexually solicited online, and nine out of ten children are exposed to p*rnography online.

When she looked for alternatives for parents worried about the dangers lurking in the cyber-shadows, she found none, so she decided to do something about it.

The result is, the only social networking site for kids and teens that`s backed by the Federal Trade Commission through the site`s Privacy Vaults approval. The site`s Chief Technology officer worked at the California Department of Justice tracking anonymous online s*x offenders, as well as the Megan`s Law database. Moreover, it requires verified parental consent for a minor to join.
