San Juan, PR (PRWEB) January 23, 2008
Email, in its current sad state of affairs has reached crisis mode. In 2002, the Federal Trade Commission conducted a little email experiment. They created 150 email addresses and posted them all around the World Wide Web. Of the email addresses that were posted intentionally on children's newsgroups, a staggering 30% received spam messages that included pornography and other adult products, and 10% included offers for hallucinogenic drugs. Since 2002, the problem has gotten a lot worse. The world needs Woomail, and parents in unprecedented numbers are signing up their youth for a free Woomail account, to ensure their online protection from spam, pornography and other unwanted contact.
The numbers don't lie. Spam accounts for more than 58% of the world's email. Pornography and other adult content are included in almost 20% of all spam email. What is more disturbing is that 80% of the world's children that have access to email receive inappropriate messages and 47% receive pornography via email on a daily basis. Furthermore, according to Symantec News, one in five children (approximately 21%) actually open and view spam emails.
John Halloran, Founder and CEO of Woomail.com, "Initially, this problem was brought to my attention by an employee who had a teenage daughter that was receiving sexually obscene email messages. This employee was shocked that his daughter could be subjected to such filth, and frankly so was I. Each one of us, child and adult alike, is subjected to spam, scams, and pornography on a daily basis. Unfortunately, there exists the underbelly of the internet which has jumped on email as a way to lure unsuspecting users into fraud, endless promotions and even sexually laced messages that minors can access and frequently have to contend with. As an innovator, I was convinced there had to be a way to stop this problem and I created Woomail, which gives complete control to the receiver and completely eliminates spam and unwanted advertisements."
Woomail is a new form of electronic messaging that will replace email as the standard. It takes control of electronic messages, giving complete power to the user - namely the child - and robs the sender of any control. Woomail servers control both ends of the information exchange and messages never enter cyberspace. Woomail is not email. Instead, it is an improved way to message online; a safe, intuitive and controlled online communication tool that works in a simple yet effective manner and eliminates spam.
Parents can rest assured that their kids will not be bothered with pornographic emails or unsavory solicitation of any kind. By setting up a free Woomail account for a child or teen, the power of email is instantly transferred from the sender to the receiver. A child or parent can set preferences, restrict abusers and decide who can contacts them and for how long. The importance of Woomail for youth online and the peace of mind for their parents is that it transfers permanent control to the end user. To register for a free account, visit http://www.woomail.com
