Some of the Internet industry’s biggest names have banded together to keep kids safe online.
www.getnetwise.org is a public service designed to help ensure that families have safe, constructive, educational and entertaining online experiences.
"The 'Get Net Wise' coalition wants Internet users to be just one click away from the resources they need to make informed decisions about their family's use of the Internet," explained a spokesperson for the organisation.
Organising partners include America Online, AT&T, Microsoft, Disney Online, [email protected], Lycos, Yahoo, Alta Vista, Dell and IBM. Members also include companies who sell blocking software, including Net Nanny and Surf Watch software.
The site details more than 80 commercial software programs that parents can use to block inappropriate content for children. It also includes collections of recommended sites safe for children of all ages and guidelines for parents on children’s use of the Internet.
