The Internet and the social web are compelling parents to define a new approach to parenting, and SocialShield offers them a new tool to help by enabling them to see not only their kids’ activity, but their friends’ activity as well. SocialShield monitors and summarizes a child’s online activity and alerts parents about situations where their children may be victimized by cyberbullying or child predators, in addition to reputation damaging posts and pictures. Because SocialShield lives in the "cloud," there is no software to download or install, and it functions wherever children access their social media profiles, including cell phones.

SocialShield is the only service that analyzes a child’s friends by checking their info against more than 50 data points to determine if person is someone the parent should be concerned about. Alerts are generated when an adult becomes a friend of a child, when someone looks suspicious or has no other friends in common with a child, or if something appears out of the ordinary. In addition, SocialShield monitors a child’s social network activity for inappropriate pictures and reckless discussions about subjects like drugs, sex, violence, alcohol and suicide. Parenting is difficult enough without all of the outside concerns. With SocialShield, parents are allotted extra piece of mind knowing they are doing what they can to try to protect their children on the Internet.
