Oak Hill, WV (PRWEB) April 11, 2007
Zemerick Software, Inc. proudly announces the release of SaferSpace.
SaferSpace is a computer program that allows concerned parents to block access to the popular social networking website MySpace. When SaferSpace is running and a user of the computer tries to access the MySpace website, the web browser window will automatically be closed and the activity will be logged. SaferSpace works with all versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox and parents can add additional websites to block.
NetSmartz, an Internet safety resource from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, recommends that parents and guardians "look into safeguarding programs" and "consider using filtering or monitoring software" in effort to keep children safe online (http://www.netsmartz.org/safety/safetytips.htm).
Studies have linked the use of social networking websites with declining grades. According to a study by Tamyra Pierce of the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism at California State University, Fresno, students with MySpace accounts reported their grades were significantly lower this year than last year, compared to students without MySpace accounts.
Children are also at risk outside the home. The proposed Deleting Online Predators Act of 2007 requires that recipients of universal service support for schools and libraries protect minors from commercial social networking websites and chat rooms.
SaferSpace is an effective solution for both parents and organizations that need to block access to MySpace and other social networking websites.
To download or purchase SaferSpace visit http://www.zemericks.com/products/saferspace. Home user licenses are $19.95. Discounts are available for non-profit organizations, libraries, and schools. A trial version of SaferSpace is available.
