Google is expected on Tuesday to announce the launch of a parent's resource for kids' safety online - called The Family Safety Guide . You can actually see that it is live now by following the link.
Its reported that in partnership with the media-awareness group Common Sense Media, Google has produced an online video called "A common sense approach to Internet safety," seen above. The video is available on the home page of the Family Saftey Guide, as well as on YouTube, and throughout the video-on-demand services provided by Time Warner Cable, Comcast and Cox (all partners of Common Sense.)
"At Google, we're committed to helping keep our users safe online. When it comes to child safety, we aim to:
- Empower parents with tools to help them choose what content their children see online;
- Educate children on how to stay safe online;
- Protect children through partnerships with law enforcement and industry."
This new action by Google is on top of Google's "safe search,”which filters out inappropriate material for kids from its list of search results; and the Google directory lists kid-safe sites.
