SocialShield Chosen by AOL to Power New SafeSocial Offering

AOL has selected SocialShield to power its new AOL SafeSocial  offering, a service that lets parents monitor their kids' online activities. The patent-pending SocialShield technology provides parents with a 360-degree view of what kids are doing online...

SocialShield technology, with up-front consent from the child, looks at their semi-private and private data, including information about online activities and friends on primary social networks like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Parents receive real-time alerts regarding potential predator relationships and indications of at-risk behaviors, such as posted references to alcohol use or even cyberbullying  and suicide. SocialShield technology checks all friends against 50 databases and more than 100 data points to ensure they are who they say they are.
